Island hopping in Talalora, Samar
Last Saturday, a motley group of photo hobbyists from Tacloban City found themselves huddled together in a motorized banca under pouring rain in an instant island-hopping photoshoot at the northern mouth of the famed San Juanico Strait – the longest strait in the world, separating the islands of Samar and Leyte.
The group was originally headed for a photo gig at a farm In Babatngon, Leyte – some 33 kilometers north of Tacloban City. Last minute unavailability of the farm shoot forced the group to head off to an island expedition to Talalora, Samar – 45 minutes by pump boat across the San Juanico Strait from Babatngon.
The scene as we departed from Babatngon: intimidating weather up ahead…
Then the clouds cleared up…
