#251 The Golden Hours


Colored boats, grass huts, a deep blue sky, and a golden landscape... they're the usual suspects found in scenes typical of our rural outback at sunset. 

We were in barrangay Caroan in Gonzaga Cagayan, anticipating a landscape bathed by the setting sun's orange glow. Fishermen were mending their nets just moments earlier... but have all retired to their homes... leaving only their boats to witness creation's finale. Nature does save the best for last, which unfortunately, is still one of landscape photography's best kept secrets. But now you know. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Most folks think sunset is all about the setting sun, but the golden hours just preceding it can surprise.)

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 (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), 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 aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
