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.

laguna: nagcarlan underground cemetery


The Crypt

The feast day of Todos los Santos (All Saints' Day) is one of the most celebrated holidays in the Philippines (just like Christmas and the Holy Week). In this predominantly Catholic country, almost everyone heads to the cemetery to pay their respects to dear departed relatives and love ones. And speaking of cemeteries, there's one in the province of Laguna that stands out from the rest.

bulubadiangan: shooting the sunset and sunrise


Bulubadiangan Seaweeds Lowtide Sunset

The sunset gods must have been smiling upon me that afternoon, for it was one of the most intense light displays I have ever seen.

concepcion: return to bulubadiangan's sandbar


Bulubadiangan Sand bar

Its a sleepy little town in the north western side of Panay island. For some the town of Concepcion is a dead end, literally the end of the road. For some like me, its a gateway to little pieces of paradise, one of which is a small island called Bulubadiangan (sometimes spelled as Bolobadiangan).

laguna: majayjay's bukal/bucal falls (or liliw's kilangin falls?)


Bukal/Bucal Falls aka Kilangin Falls
Bukal Falls
Rust and crimson colored rocks carpeted with lush green moss, crystal clear pools and icy cold waters, high rock walls draped with vibrant greens - these are what greets you when you reach Bukal Falls. Its another "hidden gem", if you prefer that cliche.

Tucked in a deep ravine at the base of Mt. Banahaw in Laguna, two adjacent towns lay claim to the area. Folks in Liliw call it Kilangin Falls, while those in Majayjay call it Bukal Falls or Bucal Falls. The word "bukal" literally means spring, and the water that flows down the cascades is from a emerald green pool fed by springs.
