Photography Magic Windmills by Albert Dros
A few weeks ago I shot all of these photos during this magical morning; a morning I will never forget. On this particular morning thick fog covered the area of the famous windmill village Zaanse Schans (try to pronounce that :) ) in the Netherlands. I was lucky to be there around 5 AM in the morning and take these photos. It was like I was walking in a fairytale.
Zaanse Schans is a popular tourist destination. During the day it's packed with thousands of tourists and it's unpleasant to walk. However, when the tourist shops and restaurants close, the buses leave and the area gets completely empty. Photographing late light or every early morning shows the true beauty of this place.
Thick fog covering the ground with the windmills sticking out. An unreal sight.
The sun causing beautiful light rays piercing through the fog.
There are people living in this popular tourist destination. Their houses look straight from a fairytale.
Just before sunrise the clouds turn purple. A thick fog blanket makes it look like the windmills are floating.
Lots of different wild flowers with a cheese farm in the background. Is this real life?
This is the house connected to the famous cheese farm at the Zaanse Schans. People actually live here.
Beautiful old trees combined with the windmills and a foggy atmosphere make for a magical moment.
The famous cheese farm rising from the fog in the early morning with the sun giving that golden glow.
Windmills rising from the fog when the sun was still below the horizon giving that beautiful pink glow.
Those early mornings are completely empty. During the day this little street is packed with tourists.
With the sun up and the fog slowly fading away the magical landscape of the Zaanse Schans gets revealed.
