Mount ulap adventure / My first visit


Finally I made it to the top of mount ulap for the first. It was very tiring going up and down from the mountain but I enjoyed. As you can see in the image it is a grass land where you can only see few trees.

I think the best time to start the hike is 4 or 5am its early and a bit cold and another reason to start early is the temperature, it is cold in the morning but after 4 or 5 hours of walk you will feel the hot temperature especially if there is no clouds covering the sun but don’t worry there is also a fresh cold air coming when you start hiking down the mountain until the last trail.

You will need a lot of water because I know you will get dehydrated and your body heat will increase, bring a 2 liters of water or more and… I forgot to say eat your breakfast before the hike or else you will feel dizzy during the hike.

If you are a landscape photographer and want to shoot sunrise I think you need to start the hike at 4am and try to reach the first peak so that you will get the best shot of the sunrise with no trees covering the view. c

Mount kalugong sunset


This mountain is one of the most visited place at tawang la trinidad. When you go inside there is a 50 pesos entrance fee and you can walk around or even stay for the whole day, you can also set up camp and spend the night. There is also a restaurant inside where you can eat your lunch or you snack.

The image you see above is one of my sunset shot during our visit to the place. The place place where I took the image was just below the restaurant, on the left side of the image that is la trinidad.p f

We spend an hour waiting for a good light to come up and boom I was able to capture the best light color of the sunset during that time.

The clouds is crawling, scene at mount yangbew


This was the shot that I took at the summit of mount yangbew. The cloud is moving to the left until the moutains were all covered with clouds. t h

Timelapse is better in capturing this kind of scene or by using ND filters to smooth the clouds. During that time I don’t have nd filters and I don’t know how to edit timelapse so I just took a handheld snapshot.

Mount Yangbew Sunrise



Today is february, time was just too fast its like yesterday was a minute ago. Still my plan this year is to travel until forever. I’ve got so much left that I want to do that I did not do last year I need to finish the race and story that I started. d a

I remember when I first hike this mountain I was like I’m on top of mount pulag but you cannot see a sea of clouds. You can only see la trinidad and baguio city.

I love how I took the shot here I like the green grass and rocks, when you go to the rocks you can see some beautiful foregrounds and find your own composition for your photography. This is a place where you can see the milky way because  it is very dark, the milky way is very visible to the eye.

The view of baguio city from mount cabuyao


I was so lucky to capture the city of baguio. I took the shot from mount cabuyao. The sky was not that good but I love the image.

This is not the whole city of baguio the image is only half of the city.

I got some amazing shots last November at sunrise but this is my favorite one. As you can see at the background it looks white because that time it was foggy and cloudy at the background I am happy that I took some snap and be able to share it with everyone.


Back to sablan benguet


Sablan is my home for sunset photography. The view is looking east where you can see la union province. I was fell in love with the colors of the sunset, the sky is stunning with beautiful golden colors. I am so lucky to capture the sunburst because the burst during that time fades quickly.

To those of you who are planning to visit sablan, go to the view deck where you can see somthing like the image above. I took the image almost 100 meters aways from sablan view deck but you don’t need to get far away from the view deck to see a better view.
