When you head for the hills at twilight, you might as well head to its highest point.
We drove up Mt. Cabuyao in Benguet until the road ended, then groped our way along a narrow pathway towards a cliff overlooking Baguio City. Below us, the city sleeps. My thermometer read 9 degrees C, but the unrelenting wind made it feel bitingly colder. It was a price to pay for being at the highest point. Enjoy.
(Pixel-Peepers: It's easy to measure the brightness of a scene, but the rules are a little different when the scene is predominantly in shadow. You can bracket your exposures from experience, or use a spot meter to read the brightest spots. Either way, the effort can be rewarding.)
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 (email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
