#272 A River with a Story


The Pansipit river is how overflowing water from Taal Lake finds its way to the sea. Narrow in many places and shallow all throughout, it's hard to believe Spanish galleons ever navigated it. But navigate it, they apparently did. How? West of the present river is a long meandering valley that certainly looked wide enough and deep enough to be the ancient sea channel. And because they found shells and artifacts there, the locals believed they've uncovered the answer. Believe it, or not? Enjoy.

(Pixel-Peepers: The river banks were so lush I really needed a wider lens to do them justice. But since I now travel with a one lens setup... beggars can't be choosy.)

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.)
