Yesterday I found this spot near Cangmunag Barangay called Paradise Bay. As I was trying to avoid some serious pot holes in the road, I noticed a small handwritten sign and a small dirt track. Parked the bike and asked a lady to watch after it for me. Then walked about 100m over to the ~30m cliff with the ocean below. A somewhat-solid-somewhat-sketchy bamboo staircase (sturdier full-body railings) led down the fifth class terrain. At the bottom was a natural spring where a few locals were bathing and washing clothes. Took a look around in the sea water and noticed a bunch of small jellyfish looking creatures in the water. I asked a local dude if the water was unsafe for swimming, he said no. Still I decided not to go in. Came back the next day with the tripod and the homemade ND filter and created the following images. Lucky it was a cloudy rainy day the day I returned, just what I was looking for in the sky-scape: something interesting! Ever since I got into this ND filter and HDR game, I've got more interested in cloudy days. Blue skies are boring! Enjoy!
