#9 Hope Springs Eternal

Where will you be in 2009?

Most of us don't plan until the new year arrives, except when it's arriving this week. Yikes. Will we all be back to the routine of life and work? For more of the same? Do we want more of the same? The world is an imperfect place, and the past year has shown us it can be a pretty scary one as well. But no matter the tribulations there is always room for hope. All twilight photographers know the darkest part of the night is shortly before the sun comes out. Such too is life.

In the small mountain town of Mayoyao about 40 kms from the Banaue Rice Terraces, the sunrise that morning had ended with a whimper and a sigh. Dark storm clouds spoiled the dawn, disappointing when you consider we'd spent 8 hours on a bus and then another 6 hours by jeep just to get there. But just as we thought it was all over, we were dazzled by crepuscular rays from high heavens. Hope because it's not over until it's over. Such too is life. Enjoy.


  1. I'd pick twilight anytime. Thank you for this picture. It captures being in between earth and heaven, being both human and spirit, and like you said, having both darkness and light.

  2. Beautifully rendered...
    Such a delight...
