#101 Mirror Lake

Combing the shores of Lake Seloton for photographs, I was greeted by a dear old friend who I often meet during my travels. Let me explain.

You see, reflections are one of my best friends when shooting at twilight. They can multiply the ebbing colors of a twilight sky and brighten-up my compositions at a time when most light and color have left the land. To be able to continue shooting long after the sun has set, reflections are great friends indeed. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Most people stop shooting after the sun drops below the horizon. The light may be soft but the angle of the light produces the best reflections over still water. You'll need a third friend of course, your trusty tripod, because it's usually too dark to handhold these type of shots. Now don't tell me three's a crowd!)

Where in the world is the Lake Sebu in South Cotabato?

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.)
