Phoenix Morning

I have not been able to pick up and use my camera as much as I would like to lately so when I opportunity came to visit Philippines' summer capital a couple of days ago, I made sure I catch a sunrise at Baguio's Mines View Park.

Giant Clam Sanctuary

A few hundred meters from shore in Brgy Acedor in Samal island (officially known as the Island Garden City of Samal) is a one of a kind marine sanctuary. A 14-ha area around a shallow reef near the famous Pearl Farm resort was seeded with giant clams (genus Tridacna) some years back and now its home to a few thousand mature giant clams (at least 3000 according to the caretakers).

Temple of Leah at Dawn

Standing grandly on a spot overlooking the whole of Cebu City, the temple looked out of place with its large Doric columns and statues of angels and Greek archers. The temple is not your usual temple - its not build for a religion, but as a symbol of one man's undying love and devotion.

Pililla Wind Farm

I recently went back to Pililla Wind Farm to catch the sunset (again! My 3rd visit this year). Its becoming to be a popular destination, and for very good reasons: beautiful green rolling hills, these majestic wind turbines, scenic view of Laguna Lake, and all of these in just 3 hours drive from Metro Manila (2hrs if you are lucky with the traffic).

Here Comes the Sun

I recently picked up my tripod and filters again and headed to the province of Aurora in the eastern side of Luzon.  Although Baler would be the obvious destination in Aurora, it is after all a mecca for surfers and wanna-be surfers, we skipped it for Dipaculao. But like them surfers we were chasing waves as well, among other things.
