#190 Dawn Silhouettes

Even when dawn disappoints, all is not lost.

On Nagarao Island just past the main island of Guimaras, we woke up to a blue dawn. We see this often during the rainy season, when the clouds are just too thick around the horizon at sunrise. The sun tries to punch through, but today the night is more than its match, leaving everything around us a gloomy blue. Have we been defeated? Nah. At least not in the bigger scheme of things. We will make such a trip again, and when we do, we will wake-up at 4:30am again to stalk the next sunrise. Who knows? Luck can change. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: My camera was mounted on a tripod, pointed in the direction of where I thought the sun could break through. And thanks to a friend who spotted this passing pump boat my composition came together.)

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.)
