Baclayon Church

Baclayon Church door [old entryway].

The sun was harsh and it brought the scenes to life. Natural light really brings out a good picture. The Baclayon Church in Bohol is one of the oldest church in the Philippines. The unrenovated area of the church looked creepy. But I have to say it aged quite nicely.

Cooling off

The Philippine Carabao.

It was taking a dip. Probably to cool itself from the heat. It was a first for me to see a Carabao taking a bath in a river. It was awesome. We took a time off the City. This was in Kulit (not sure if it’s a K or a C) River, Nasipit, Agusan del Norte, Mindanao, PH. The water was murky because of the storm that went past a couple of days before. I think it was Sendong. The river cradled a lot of washed up coconuts, branches and destroyed plants.

Mr. Croc

The crocodile at Crocolandia, Cebu, PH.

I was overjoyed when one crocodile finally showed itself and right across me. I guess it wanted its picture taken. Haha! Most of them were underwater and you could barely make them out with all the lilies floating around.

Along a Grassy Place

Tall Grass.

Grass, plants and a blue sky make a good picture. Outdoor photographs are relaxing to look at. Its like it’s taking you on a little vacation. For a split second.

The Lone Pine Tree

The Pine Tree.

While walking downhill, we passed by this lonely pine tree.  It looked really picturesque against the cloudy sky. Enjoyed the rest of the day at the Mountain View Park, Cebu, PH.

Sky Armageddon

Kablooey!

Sunset at Baybay, Leyte. As we walked our way back to the lodging, noticed the sky looked like it blew up. I wondered how it formed that way.

A Clash in the Sky

Dark Descent. Big Sand, Moalboal, Cebu, PH.

The sun was glaring and dark clouds were easing in. It rained hard that day.

Alindanaw

Pretty dragonfly.

One of those timely moments. A beautiful glowing fuschia alindanaw (in Bisaya). It hanged on to the stalk for a little while before it flew away. I caught a lot of these insects way back in my childhood days. We’d tie a thread around it’s barrel behind and pretend it was a tiny kite! Insect cruelty? Nah, we always released it after. But unfortunately some didn’t make it. RIP †

Double Full Moon

Everything’s so Blurry

The night was really breezy. The water was cool. The drink tasted great. And the moon was shining! What was there to complain?  Just a point-and-shoot digital camera, nothing fancy.

On a Motorboat

Rowing by the Sea [not really, it was motorized]

We missed the barge by minutes. So we loaded a motorized bangka instead on our way to Bantayan Island. And realized that it was not a legal transportation. Haha! But we had no choice, we had to get there and it was getting dark. Man, the waves were scary and we were soaked! It tossed the bangka like a pendulum. Busied ourselves. Laughed and took pictures to shake off the fear. We docked safely! Land ho! Talk about adventure!

Full Moon

Full Moon

Night swimming at Sugar Beach, Bantayan Island, Cebu, PH. The moon was full hiding behind soft spread-out clouds. Wasn’t able to really capture the clouds here. It would have looked really eerie. Was using a point-and shoot cam only. I tweaked this photo a little using Photoshop CS3.

Flying Dragons

Looked like the dragons were gliding.

If dragons were real? That’d be the day. . . One of the mythical creatures that I find truly magnificent.
