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.

baler: diguisit bay moods

Diguisit Bay
moody Pacific

Huge waves and rugged coastline shaped by the Pacific Ocean characterized the surfing town of Baler. One of the interesting places there is Diguisit bay.  Located in Brgy Zabali, its just a few minutes outside of town proper by tricycle.

There is a picnic area there frequented by locals and tourists alike. Tall grotto-like sea stacks with wind battered trees are just a few meters from shore. I imagined what the sunset can be like: fiery skies, crashing waves, towering sea-stacks. But the Pacific had other plans, and just gave us the last two in the list, maybe the fiery sky is reserved for the next visit.

Sunset on our first day lacked the colors I imagined, but it made it up with an interesting mood. For a few seconds, a golden layer of colors managed to break through the thick rain clouds.

Tenacious beings that we are, we headed there again the next day for a second try. And for the second time, the Pacific said "No!". Sunset was gloomier than the previous day.

But in hindsight, I am thankful for that particular weather. It gives the place, often shown in bright blue skies and near perfect weather, a different character.
