Kawas at Sunset

I WENT to Kawas Beach this afternoon to relieve my stress before going back to school tomorrow. I walked around, looking for subjects. I chose the mangrove area on the right side and also found some rocks nice scattered in the shallow water. I waited for the golden hour and took some shots.

Fire Dancer


I WAITED for the perfect moment and I wasn’t disappointed. I caught a shot of this fire dancer shortly after he breathed fire.

The dancer was one of the participants in a local talent showdown called, “Syagit sa Kasadya,” (Shout for Joy) as part of the 11th Kasadyaan Festival, the 41st Foundation Anniversary of my hometown, Alabel, Sarangani Province.

Ladol Sunset



I DEDICATE this post to Ladol, which will soon become the newest barangay of Alabel, Sarangani Province. The beach in Ladol has been my consistent friend whenever I want to take a breather. With its becoming a barangay, we expect for more development in the area, and, hopefully, protection of the bodies of water in encompasses.

Sunrise at the Peak

sunrise at bundol peak

LAST WEEKEND, after the stressful seminar-workshop I facilitated for student journalists in the Division of Sarangani, I took a trip to Bundol Peak, in Barangay Bagacay, in my hometown,  Alabel, Sarangani Province. I just love watching the sun as it slowly rises above the mountains that are beginning to gain lush back again, probably a result of the greening project of the government.

Bundol Peak, being one of the highest points in the area, provides a good vantage point to view Sarangani Bay in the west, and the river and the mountains in the north.

Bundol peak, however, is at a risk of extinction because of the quarrrying activities that’s going on in the area. Although it has stopped now, I am sure, one day, the landowner will continue the works and we will eventually find Bundol Peak a barren flat land.

Night Trekkers

trekkers in the night

A BLANKET of mist enveloped the trail as we began our night trek to Sanchez Peak in General Santos City.

I was part of the lead pack, so we were ahead of all the rest of the trekkers.

It was already drizzling when we were about to assault the steep slope. When I looked behind me, I saw this beautiful sight. Beams of light from an incandescent light bulb are filtered by the leaves of trees. The mist made the beams even more visible.

The monochrome look of this photo is natural. There was no alteration of the color of this photograph.
