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.

maira-ira: blue lagoon's wavy welcome

Can the waves be more awesome than this?
Blue Lagoon big waves at sunrise

So there I was, after more than 24 hours of long queues, butt numbing bus rides, bus transfers, and busted air conditioning. There I was standing on the shores of mainland Luzon's northernmost tip, a place called Blue Lagoon Cove in Maira-ira, Pagudpud, savoring the salty morning sea air. Couldn't believe that just a few weeks ago I was in mainland Mindanao's southernmost area.

I've seen postcard shots of the place, the bluest of blue waters and the whitest of white sand on a clear sunny day. But I like Blue Lagoon's moody sunrise after a night of heavy rains. The waves are huge and they hit the shores with a booming sound. No wonder the place is becoming to be a surfing destination.

And as if to welcome us first timers there, the sea certainly presented us with a display of awesome waves. More photos of my Blue Lagoon morning soon. (photo left: lantaw vs the waves, courtesy of dongho).

The white foam on the waves, the beige gold of the sands and the movement in the photo make it a stunning shot. Certainly worth the inconvenience of the trip to get there!

Louise said...

Great captures. I always want to go to the places you show.

I'm sorry if I missed it, but I could not find you link back to the My World site. Please be so kind to link back to it when you link from it.

(I love the water in your posts below, too. Excellent photography!)

@Sidney - my family is in the south (Koronadal, South Cotabato) but my work is based in Manila so I get to travel across the Philippines always :)
