WPC: Wanderlust

The months of April and May are the Philippines summer months. Classes are closed and everyone’s taking a vacation. My nephew from another region of the country visits us. Since we live in our country’s third-smallest island, beaches and hills surround us. In this photo my youngest son gladly accompanied his visiting cousin in a nearby hill. It’s only a forty-five-minute walk from our place. 
 
While on top they could see the big houses below. Ours is covered by lush trees so it isn’t visible from where they are standing. Located farther are the sea and another island. Hadn’t it been cloudy, the sunrise could have given a misty glow to everything around.
 
But the morning exercise and the sights made the boys’ eyes sparkled with awe.

The Golden Hour: Sunset at the countryside

Developing Your Eye 1, Day 4: Bliss

The Golden Hour always takes my breath away. Whether it be sunrise or sunset, the feelings it evokes in me are still the same. The wow-ness and awesomeness of everything around turning into gold is heaven on earth for me. A panoply of emotions play in my childlike heart: amazement, awe, stun, wonder, marvel and fascination.

What’s your bliss too?
