#296 Raindrops of Gold

While stalking dawn at the port of Pilar in Sorsogon, ominous rain clouds appeared out of no where. I thought to myself, I've seen this movie before. When you're stalking the colors of twilight, you're always hanging on a prayer. Will fate be kind today?

While rain clouds obscured sunrise, it was thin enough to allow the sun's rays to shine through it, blanketing the entire landscape before me in an eerie orange glow, highlighting raindrops in ecstatic dance. Prayers answered. Enjoy. 

(Pixel-peepers: At dawn, not all the action is in the sky. Look around you, specially at surfaces that can reflect. Opportunities abound.)

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.)
