My 2nd Digital Photographer Philippines Magazine Cover
A brief story about this cover photograph.
The windmills in my Digital Photographer Philippines cover photo are called Kinderdijk. The name Kinderdijk is Dutch for "Children's dike". Kinderdijk is a village in the Netherlands it was built around 1740. This group of mills is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands.They have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
My cover photo is very memorable. The first time I saw the Kinderjink Windmills in Netherlands, It's like I was in a dream.
It's an instinct and automatic for me to seize the opportunity and photograph a beautiful scene. So I grab my tripod and camera and started clicking a few frames when, Eli our Dutch KLM Ambassador companion informed me that I cannot shoot in that private property, I need to get out immediately! He told me later that there's a signage about that private property sign but it's written in Dutch.
But knowing myself I cannot let go a beautiful scenery with an amazing elements & composition in front of me. So I keep on shooting a few frames till I got my shot. And there you go. It's now a cover of a magazine.
So when you visit your favorite magazine store and you have seen this cover, you already know the story behind that cover shot. = )
