We were on the lake's edge early enough to find these boats still fast asleep, gently rocked by its undulating waves. We were on the shores of Talisay in Batangas, looking out towards Taal volcano. The weatherman forecasted rain but we just had to see with our own eyes if he was right. He was, in fact, but not until we've had half an hour of exceedingly good light. What more can one ask for? Enjoy.
(Pixel-Peepers: The light was strong but highly directional, which made our photographs come alive. You find this kind of contrasty light on a landscape when the sky is heavily clouded and where light approaches only from the horizon. So the next time they forecast rain, pack a jacket and a prayer. You might get lucky too.)
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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 email@example.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
