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 looks back at 2011


Blue Steel Sunrise

With just a few hours left in 2011, I'm looking back at a very fruitful year. I've been to new places and met new friends. I'd like to share the highlights of 2011 in a series of photos. I have a lot of favorites for this year, so it was a bit of challenge which ones are included in this post.

kuala lumpur: petronas twin towers and city lights


Petronas Twin Towers

There is always magical about dusk as it falls on a city. As the lights start to shine, a city is transformed from a grey jungle to a lively and colorful place. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's capital, is one such place.

putrajaya: revisiting masjid putra


Towering Putra Mosque

While some are contented with visiting a place once, filling their memory cards with shots, and then moving on to the next spot, I firmly believe that it takes several visits before you can get the shots you want. Condition varies all the time, weather and the quality of light changes on a daily basis. So for the second day in a row I revisited Putrajaya Mosque at sunrise.

putrajaya: putra mosque for the first time


Putra Mosque in Blue Hour

I recently got a free trip to Putrajaya, a beautiful “planned city” about 25 kilometers southwest of Kuala Lumpur, for the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2011. While some of the invited bloggers probably got down to planning what to wear for that gala event - it’s the “Oscars” of the Asia Pacific blogsphere after all, I got busy to planning what to shoot in Putrajaya.
