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.

Lantaw is Best Photography Blog in the Philippine Blog Awards 2011 (Mindanao)


Lantaw is Best Photoblog in PBA 2011 for Mindanao!

Thank you Philippine Blog Awards! I was not able to attend the awards night in General Santos last November 26, 2011 so I'll just point you to PBA's FB page for some of the photos of what I heard was a very successful and fun evening.

Update: December 3, 2011

One of the post in this blog won the Top Photo Post award in the recent Philippine Blog Awards 2011 (National Level). Here a link to the winning post.

taal town: panutsa factory


Panutsa Factory

If you've been to bus stations for traveling to the provinces, which I figured most of us have as buses are the most common mode of transport here in the Philippines, most likely you've bought some snacks and local sweets. Ever wondered how these flat peanut filled panutsa (or panocha, or bandi) are made?

taal town: a smugmug photowalk


Basilica de San Martin de Tours

Though I've been to Taal a couple of years ago, I welcomed the chance to revisit it with old and new friends. So when the local SmugMug group organized a photowalk I did not hesitate to sign up.

Kalesa sa Roxas

A kalesa (horse drawn carriage) in a street corner in Roxas Blvd right across Rizal Park. The kalesa is a quintessential symbol of old Manila and can usually be seen in the Intramuros (famous Walled City) and Rizal Park area.

american cemetery in infrared


American Cemetery in IR

Its a surreal place even in "normal light" and rendering it in infrared made it even more eerie.

nueva vizcaya: imugan falls


Imugan Falls 2

I had my sights on Imugan Falls for quite some time now. Several of my friends had visited the place a year or two ago but I had to be somewhere else at that time. After a few failed attempts to go there, one finally pushed through, this time with a blogger friend (DongHo). It’s a 6-hour trip just to see the falls, a trip I was glad to take.
