#176 A Flash at Dawn

Few accept the gift of an awakening dawn. Most think it's enough to flip through a photograph or two, and know what they're missing. Yet they would be wrong.

From a photograph, you can't feel the chilly air that envelopes you, nor smell the distinct aroma of dew-laden grass. You can't hear the insects chirping, the frogs croaking, the birds calling from the distance, and certainly not feel the hair behind your neck tingle when the light first breaks. And you will miss the excitement of seeing the blue sky slowly turn orange as night becomes day. To experience the magic of the twilight, you really need to be there. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: The blue hour precedes the rising sun and can cast a gloomy pall over your landscape photographs. But you can wait for the moment just after the sun breaks the horizon, when its golden light wrestles to overcome the gloom, before you press your shutter. Click.)

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.)
