#171 Is it Summer yet?

It's been a hot couple of weeks, too hot to be holed-up in the city. So off we went to find some relief along the coast. 

We found ourselves in Calumboyan, Cebu, about two hours north of Mactan, in a resort overlooking an emerald sea. The sun was nearly overhead when I took this photograph. But hey didn't they say it would be too contrasty to shoot at noon? Not at all when you're along the coast. Unless the sun is directly overhead, the water isn't going to shimmer emerald like today's postcard. Enjoy.  

(Pixel-peepers: It was too hot to be pounding the shore so I hewed along the trees that lined it, where I discovered this nook from which I took today's postcard. Sometimes, you just have to take several steps back to get the best view.)

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.)
