I really admit, it was indeed a shame I watched this only for the first time! A mere 3km separate us from this shore. We are facing the east coast. When you are in your own bed, to take a bath and changing your house clothes seem very difficult tasks. It took many sunrises and sunsets from many places before I fully decided to be familiar with our own place. At least it is not yet too late.
In a few minutes, the sun peeped through near the mountain on the left. During the dry season the sun is normally at that position. At some point throught the year the sun can be at the extreme right of the mountain at the right.
The sun rises fast and i have to be quick, left and right, far and near i clicked. I have two cameras and they come really handy. However, i didn't have time for a long exposure shot. I am tempted to just sit in there and absorb all the moments without looking at the viewfinder.
You will never ran out of subjects and frames even if you remain at your position. Just look right and left and keep on clicking. This is to the right showing Maricaban Island at the horizon. You wont believe me, i haven't been there, a mere 40 minutes away. Two small rock promontories at the distance provide the name of the place, Pulang Bato meaning Red Rock.
Up close the colorfull stones are very interesting. The reds and browns reveal the iron deposits under our areas, maybe even under our houses and farms. They come in different concentrations showing as different degree of colors on the stones. This might not be a very good beach for swimming because of the rocky shore, but the colors suffice for the inconvenience. Other stone colors reveal the previous volcano activities throughout our history, and others are coral fossils. No stones are alike in this shore.
Pulang Bato, we call this place. Those two rocks on the water are previously colored just like that on the right cliff, but oxidation and exposure to the elements got them black. The cliff remains fresh as erosion goes on continuously. When we were kids, those are still close together near the cliff and we can still pass to the other side of the cove during low tide. These days, water could really have risen, nobody can go through that way anymore.
A few minutes later it is already hot, and motorized boats begin to pass by. Heat starts to get through the skin so i started to prepare for home.
I guess, a continuation of this will be done for the other shoots i made with the details. Part II here i come. Please bear with me.
