#160 Sunset Nets



"We better go." said our boatman as he stared out to the middle of the lake. 


We were on Lake Kapispisan at sunset, an inland sea in Aklan, as the tide rushed out to sea. Little did we realize what worried our boatman until our boat suddenly stopped in the middle of nowhere. The water level had dropped so low that we had scraped bottom. We can't wade all the way back, can we?


Just then the sun broke through the thick clouds as it bade us goodbye, transforming a row of fish pens on the horizon into silhouettes.  There's no time to worry about getting stuck. The moment escapes. Click. Click. Click. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: Shooting from a rickety boat isn't to the best interests of our beloved gear, but the moment beckoned. No matter how many sunsets I've seen, they just floor me every single time.)

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 (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), 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 aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
