#253 An Alien Landscape

In Minanga Este in Cagayan, what used to be the mouth of a small bay is now... a ginormous sand dune. We found these two chaps transporting a boatload of sand, carved from the dune formed by miners quarrying the shallows for magnetite. Extracting natural resources while reclaiming valuable seaside real estate sounds too good to be true, until you realize they had to wreck a habitat to do it. Sigh.

(Pixel-peepers: Shooting from a moving barge isn't the best way to capture the moment, but sometimes you just have to take what life deals you.)

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.)
