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.

lake sebu: among the lilies of the lake



Two days of idling by the lake side just after sunrise, having coffee and striking a conversation with some of the fisher folks so that they'll let me in their property and shoot at their "front yard".

I love these lotus flowers, interesting things they are, only opening up for a few hours after sunrise. Just before noon, they close their beautiful flowers, as if saying: "Tomorrow again".

Here are a few more shots:

  


The locals seemed oblivious to these beauties, but I would not mind my "office" to be decorated with these.

I didn't realize that the lilies do that. Now this is the lake Sebu I remember from before. The last time I was there, konti nalang yung lilies. I love how they beautify the lakes, but I heard too that they are not healthy for the lake?

@Jenn, yes, not healthy if they get too many, but these lilies are not really invasive compared to the water hyacinth which can blanket a wide area in just a few weeks.
