Hot Summer is just around the corner...

One Saturday me, my wife and one of my daughterjust decided to have a trip and visit "Tam-Awan" (translated as sight seeing) village also known as "garden in the sky" at the summer capital of the country. The place was awesome got some shots but most of the time, I got a hard time shooting while trekking because I need to catch my breath while walking up...  

East tailed butterfly...this one took me a while
to wait till it finally rested for a picture.

Blue Mountains Pictures

These pictures were taken during a tour at the blue mountain Sydney Australia while I was still studying at the University of Technology Sydney...These pictures brings back memories.

Enchanted Blue Mountain

Wentworth Falls picture taken at the view deck

This shot missed the three sisters mountain which is on the left side

The famous three sisters mountain is at far right of the mountain range

The blue haze covering the mountains was seemingly caused by the oily vapor emitted by the trees within the mountain.

Underwater Photo Shoots Alternative

  Stillness keeps us one 
with and water
 I have always been fascinated by the beauty of life under the sea. So I've been thinking of doing underwater photo shoot...unfortunately its not easy as it seems.  There are lot of things that needs to be prepared before you can do such an adventure shooting. You need to buy an underwater camera, have a diving lesson, etc..

I can't wait... so there we go... went into an alternative underwater photo shoots - no new lenses, no more deep sea diving, not even a water suit...these pictures are taken from the Manila Ocean Park (Philippines) during a family tour.

Here the subjects are willing to be pictured and it seemed they already know how to pose...the only constraints are lighting problems and  shadows     because of the aquarium glass glare.

The messages and wisdom that I have seen in these pictures are lessons of life...please enjoy as you go through these pictures.

The force that keeps the balance of the
universe can be seen even with the colors
that life itself manifest. 

  Some are simply open and
  some are massively protected

We are all here for a purpose

The circle for life...

  Seeing life upside down? may say
   as you look but it sees the world as you do

would it make a difference if they have known that they are being called the dancing fairies of the sea? Knowing it or not they just dance as gaily as they are for life is what you make it...
Colors are the language of beauty
