Covered [Photo-Hunt]

Caffeine deprivation, the sea breezes and the sun made me drowsy while waiting for high tide at Sabitang Laya, one of the islands in the Caramoan Peninsula. I looked for some shade to take a quick shut-eye while my friends were perfecting their jump shots, and found a huge and hollow rock by the shore. It was a cool place and I took a nap covered by a rock, with cracks!

A unique take on this theme and still you're able to continue with the series you are running. Pretty clever.

Your photos make me want to re-visit Caramoan! Been there in 1998, way before it became what it is now, and has not come back eversince. I pretty much remember when we couldn't dock in Guijalo and we're transported via small bancas to reach the pier. Very nice photo series indeed, can't wait to see the rest.

You covered 'covered' in several different ways. I hope the rocks didn't leak!

This is such a beautiful place. The Philippines has lots of undiscovered sights, I hope my Filipino friends would bring me when I go for a visit. :)

Memories of Caramoan haunt me again and again. One of the best least explored destinations in the Philippines!

I like the unique take. I wasn't certain what I was look at in the first couple of pictures until I read your description.

These are all wonderful shots. I love the rocks in the first shots and the fog adds so much to the last ones. I find fog to be very romantic.

Lorna said...

I could imagine myself in that crackly rocky spot---for about 3 seconds. I am covered in a different way.

Shimumsy said...

ganda ng misty look ng mga bundok. gusto ko talaga ang mga foggy shots kaya lang takot ako bumyahe sa dagat pag tag ulan. buti at summer pa at medyo kalmado pa rin ang dagat. ganda nga ng mga bato na kinuha mo dito.

Beautiful pictures and post. Yesterday was warm and I saw two young women laying on the grass reading books by the river.

Ebie said...

Wow those are beautiful hills! And the fog looks like a mist!
