#86 In the Foothills of Lubo

Sometimes the weather is just not your friend.

After a grueling 9 hour drive-and-trek to the Lubo terraces, in the town of Tanudan in Kalinga, we were greeted by a dawn sky shrouded in mist. It's an isolated community surrounded by its awesome terraces. We had imagined rice-laden fields glistening under the dawn's colors... but we missed harvest-time by a week and sunrise today was nearly colorless. A silhouette of the distant cordilleras was all I managed. Sigh. You win some, you lose some. We have to return. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: I actually have a better shot, with someone in the foreground trying to photograph the same scene, but it didn't have the silhouette of the distant mountain-range which I thought was an important element of my original composition. Choices...choices.)

Where in the world is Tanudan in Kalinga?

But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
