#223 An Orange Dawn

At dawn I often find fishermen at work, surrounded by a sea bathed in orange, reflecting a sky painted by first light. Haven't I seen enough dawns in my lifetime?

Perhaps. But on the shores of Hunugan Cove in Caramoan, I stalked the dawn for four consecutive mornings. It usually starts off as a pitch black sky before the silhouettes of the distant horizon become apparent. Eventually light appears in the sky, and hopefully there are enough clouds to reflect the enchanted colors of the dawn sun. Each dawn is different. And to witness each unique spectacle can make every attempt worth the wake. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Perseverance increases the odds of catching a great dawn, but just as in life, there are no guarantees. I often wish there were more clouds in the eastern sky, but not so much that it obscures the horizon. That's the usual recipe for a fantastic light show.)

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.)
