Mountain | Above The Clouds And Under The Stars

MOUNTAIN | Above The Clouds And Under The Stars

Return To Mt Timbac (Mt Singakalsa)

"You never climb the same mountain twice, not even in memory. Memory rebuilds the mountain, changes the weather, retells the jokes, remakes all the moves."
-- Lito Tejada-Flores

Above the sea of clouds and under the stars we were.

There was a moment when we all braved the cold and stepped outside just to watch the heavenly moon hover the night sky, like a midnight sun giving just enough illumination to the landscape. Its dark, the weather is cold, but we felt the warmth of inspiration creeping in our hearts, it was a site to behold, and so like paying homage to this beautiful place, we stood in silence as the bright moon revealed itself behind the passing clouds.

Pangasinan | Cape Bolinao Lighthouse

PANGASINAN | Cape Bolinao Lighthouse
Photos Of Bolinao Lighthouse

A tower placed on a vantage point of Bolinao Pangasinan. Known to be the 2nd tallest lighthouse in the Philippines.

In a broad daylight, with few drifting clouds, stepping into the threshold of this abandoned lighthouse was hot. Without a camera filter, my photos would have been glaringly exposed.
Bolinao Lighthouse is a noted destination to visit for every visitor of this lovely coastal town.

A Photo from the open gates. A little hike up, the lighthouse stoods proud on top of a hill.

Standing few meters at the foot of this massive tower.
Being in a close proximity, it is difficult to make the tower fit in my frame.

The tower is no longer in operation, as is, that the building beside this lighthouse is abandoned and dilapidated as well. A nice contrast to frame this beautiful lighthouse.

Sagada | Wild Flowers From Mountain Province

SAGADA | Wild Flowers From Mountain Province

I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful town of Sagada, in the Mountain Province twice for two consecutive years. It has brought some of the most memorable travel adventures and experience, not only that, due to the cool climate, the photowalks along the rice terraces with scattering of wild flowers and small gardens lit up the environment, it is a place rich in Floras. So here I am sharing some of my prized set of Flora Photos taken while I was wandering the hills of Sagada.

This photo was taken during a tour of the Echo Valley, a place behind Sagada's Gothic church and local cemetery. This was among the treasure's of the Church garden.
