#163 View of Iraya

Few of us know what it means to live under the shadow of a volcano, but those who do know how magnificent the view can be.

We were at Fundacion Pacita in Batanes, overlooking the sea on one side and Mount Iraya on the other. The forecast this morning was for rain, but hey this is Batanes, and the weather will be what it wants to be. Taking advantage of the sun, we sat on the porch and took in the expansive view, from the highest peak to the shimmering sea, and then back again. It's like stopping to smell the flowers... only better. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: A photograph of a mountain can be more interesting if you include an interesting subject in the foreground. Your best bet is to wait until both the foreground and background is lit up by the same light, then exposure would be simple.)

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.)
