#250 Up at Dawn

Twilight photographers need only one reason to be up at dawn: to capture its colors for posterity.

On the northern tip of Cagayan, where the Pacific Ocean reveals its true nature, we found fishermen already up before us. But they probably have many more reasons to be up at dawn, probably as many as they have mouths to feed. And while we focus on capturing twilight's beauty, we don't forget even for a moment that many others don't have our luxury. So today's postcard is for all of them, for everyone up at dawn because they need to. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: When you shoot the grand landscape, it helps if you try to anchor them with objects that provide a sense of scale.)

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.)
