#161 The Dawn Tree

Somewhere in a forest on top of a hill, a tree crashed to the ground. If no one was around to hear it, did the fall make a sound?

Ok that was a trick question, but I often think about all those beautiful dawns that no one was around to see. Were they intensely colorful just the same? If no one was around to photograph them for posterity, would they still have been a sight to behold? I don't know about that, but today's postcard shows there is one less dawn we'll have to wonder about. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: This is a 3-shot panorama taken with a shift lens. Unlike taking multiple shots with a regular lens and then stitching them together, panoramas from a shift lens exhibit nearly no distortion. Nada. Just align three perfectly rectangular images and that's it.)

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.)
