Moving Back a Bit over Legaspi

On Explore/Flickr Top 500, Nov. 19, 2008



And in just a moment clouds started to appear over Legaspi City and the town of Daraga. Cagsawa Ruins tourist would be scratching their heads by now. In my other visits to Cagsawa Ruins, I was sort of asking myself small questions as to how such a huge volcano can disappear from one's view in just a minute. I realized from where I'm on right now -- It was not on how fast the clouds can cover the mountain -- it was after all, how fast the clouds can cover the area in the ground where you are standing on, making this huge volcano disappear. But this time, I got the better of the clouds. It could bring rain to the city, but my coast is clear.


I was about two and a half kilometers above the ground when this cloud, about 800 meters above the ground crawled along the Legaspi and Daraga airspace. This shot is taken about two and a half kilomters above Legaspi City -- that is, a little over 8,000 ft.


Just when I thought I'm really done with Mayon photos... I saw something no postcard has ever shown me.
