  1. these photos are stunning! i never knew Ormoc is this beautiful. thanks for sharing.

  2. A good photograph is not a lucky shot. It’s the product of visualization and waiting for the perfect moment. Good job, Gerry!

  3. Thanks, Dhel and Junanteola. Sometimes one gets lucky, too! (View my latest post.)

  4. Man, you’re good! You captured the beauty of nature in its pristine state and capitalized on the artistic effect of the morning mist. Can we pitch tent there one day?

  5. Thanks, Peter. Yes, we can pitch tent at the grounds of the Pagtinabangay Mountain Retreat 🙂
