#281 When Dawn Breaks

On as many mornings as there are days in a year, the glory of dawn unfolds for all to see. But when dawn lifted this morning atop Mt. Cabuyao in Benguet, I looked around to see only one other photographer beside me. Where is everyone else?

To get to the right place at dawn, the right time to wake-up is usually four in the morning. That may be too big a sacrifice for most, but once you experience your first flaming orange dawn, waking up for the next one will be easier. Believe me. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: In dawn photography, it's not as simple as getting the exposure right. The best results are achieved when you wait for peak light to occur, a phenomenon that lasts less than a minute, when the colors are at their more intense.)

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.)
