#213 Reflecting Gold

I didn't plan to stalk the dawn that morning, but fate woke me early and saved me a spot on those watery slopes in Buscalan. We arrived while enveloped in mist and without a clear view of the horizon, but when the sun re-appeared, its magic was everywhere.

If only I was there as a mere observer, with nothing more than my eyes, I would remember much much more. But alas, my camera came along for the spectacle, so I will let my photograph tell my story. Enjoy.

(Pixel-Peepers: No filters were used for this shot. At dawn, the sky can be much brighter than the landscape, making exposure difficult. But there is a brief moment at twilight when the difference in brightness fits the exposure latitude of our camera sensors, ever so briefly. You don't need a filter to catch that.)

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.)
