Cebu: Sunset at Balamban

When I was a child, one of my favorite scenes to draw was that of mountains with the setting or rising sun.  For someone spared with the gift to draw but with a flair for coloring or color coordinating, I found it easy to draw triangles for my mountains then color them with any dark hues and make the sky as colorful as I could.  Once, a friend mentioned it didn’t look real enough so I snapped back that it was just a drawing…


And yet, when I saw the above scene during a recent trip to Balamban, I was struck at how it looked so much like a painting and yet it was so real.  Here’s my favorite shot:


Truly, God’s creations are as stunning as he is magnificent that when I see such a beauty, to quote Mahatma Gandhi, “my soul expands in worship of The Creator.”
