My usual spot was somewhere near … Continue reading Panagbenga 2019 Fireworks display

Panagbenga Night Scenes 2018

I had the urge to go out and enjoy the Panagbenga night scene just before the festivities end. It can be daunting going around in Baguio alone, specially with a camera set up to shoot some long exposures. I just had to satisfy my urge.

Philippine Military Academy, view from Mt. Kabuyao

A few hours before this scene happened I didn’t really expect anything spectacular to  come out. The scene was gloomy and cloudy. It hopeless. Deep down I was praying for a miracle to happen. The sun rose and still nothing. Only dry colors and an even gloomier feel for the day.  Just when we were packing up and getting ready to leave, this happened. It’s … Continue reading Philippine Military Academy, view from Mt. Kabuyao
