A Portal of Light

ABOUT THIS PHOTO. I didn't expect to capture the "best" light as this month is still considered the typhoon season in the Philippines. But bad weather does not discourage me of shooting anymore. Maybe, it's just because of my PHOTOGRAPHY COMPULSION SYNDROME! LOL. This is a scene from the Taal Volcano at the break of dawn, minutes before the rain poured as the small portal of light was still shining over the horizon. I shot this moments before the downpour that had me drenched and wet.

A gentle note on posting comments to visitors: While my regular Flickr contacts and friends don't do this, I request occasional visitors to please refrain from posting "View my Most Interesting Photos" or posting your own photos on my own. I just find it being rude and inconsiderate. Thank you for your understanding.
