Calamianes: Sky-watching from Mt. Tapyas

@ mirandablue
Watching the effects of the changing light on the hills of Busuanga Island as the sun sets in the Calamianes.


Golden sunshine covered the slopes, hills and valleys surrounding Mount Tapyas.

Blades of grass bowing in gentle September breeze.

Countless shades of green color the landscape.  

The grass is greener in Busuanga Island than anywhere I've been to in the Philippines.  No wonder there are more cows here.

A blissful moment of solitude as I scanned the spectacular views of the nearby islands in the Calamianes.

Wonderful series! I think my favourite is the third shot, with that little building bathed in the golden light of the sun! Or maybe the path - I want to follow it!
