#240 Dawn at the Lake

When you walk a lake's edge in the wee hours of the morning, you discover unique vistas not usually seen at any other time of the day. The yellowish hue of the dawn sky, the misty dampness of the cold morn air, and the lake's mirror-like surface that makes looking down much like looking up... they can literally turn a landscape photographer's perspective upside-down. Unique vistas for sure. Enjoy

(Pixel-peepers: During dawn or dusk along a water's edge, the sky is much brighter than the ground, which makes proper exposure a tricky affair. But you can neatly side-step this issue by including only the mirror-like surface of a dawn lake in your composition. Even if you omit the brighter sky, you will still see a glimpse of it on the water's surface.)

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 (, 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.)
