One of the main sources of livelihood in Lake Sebu is tilapia farming. Every morning you will see folks precariously balanced at one end of their dugout canoes tending the tilapia cages. From the outside looking in its a simple and uncomplicated life.
I had difficulty prying my self off the bed that morning. The cold weather (Lake Sebu is about 1000m above sea) did not help at all. I went down to the lake shore and searched for a good vantage point for capturing morning activities. I was not expecting a sunrise shot (its best to get sunrise photos in Lake Seloton) since I was facing the west, but nature always rewards the early bird :).
Lake Sebu's placid morning cannot be fully captured in photos. You have to be there to really experience it. The receding fog slowly takes off its mysterious cover on the mountains surrounding the lake, the distant roosters crow to signal the start of a new day. And the lake is in its calmest.
The few minutes before the "rush hour" is the best. It not too dark anymore but yet too early for folks to start their daily activities. It is on this magical moments that everything seems to stand still. You will be able to hear yourself thinking.
