About Me

My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

aurora: towers of ampere beach


Blue Steel Sunrise
Ampere beach at dawn

Located about 20 kilometers north of the surfing town of Baler in Aurora province, many photographers frequent this beach for its distinctive sea stacks and large smooth boulders lining the shore.

For two successive mornings my fellow photo enthusiasts and I dragged ourselves out of bed at 3AM, rode a tricycle for about an 45 minutes to get to this place. We arrived there while its still dark, sat on the rocks by the beach and listen to the Pacific waves thunder as they pounded the shore. Patiently we wait for that glorious light of dawn.

Ampere Mono II
silent and resolute

Sunrise did came, as expected, but without the glorious colors I hoped for. But what the dawn lacked in color it more than made up for in the mood and character of the light.

Ampere Mono III
smokey

That's one of the things I like about landscape photography, you'll never know what you'll get. Nature always has some surprise in store for you and its up to you to make do of what it dishes out.
