THIS IS THE LONG ROAD IN CANDABA, PAMPANGA WHERE THE WHOLE ROAD WAS USED TO DRY THE RICE GRAINS TO DRY WITHOUT INCURRING A HUGE COST TO THE FARMERS. I TOOK THIS SHOT FACING THE EAST. YOU CAN SEE THE WHOLE LEFT SIDE FULL OF WATER AND THE RIGHT SIDE WITHOUT ANY PADDY INTACT. IT MUST HAVE BEEN TERRIBLE FOR THE RICE FARMERS TO JUST HARVEST THE RICE WHEN THERE WAS A VERY RECENT EVENT, LIKE THE SOUTH MOONSOON RAINS FELL AND FLOODED THE RICE PADDIES. THEY HAD TO SAVE THEIR INVESTMENTS BY JUST CUTTING THE RICE STALKS AND DRY THE GRAINS ON THE HIGHWAY. I USED MY CANON 7D WITH THE EF 24-105 F/4 L IS LENS.

DURNG THE MONTH OF DECEMBER THERE WAS THIS SEAS0N 0F HABAGAT WHERE TORRENTIAL RAIN WOULD POUR AND THE LOW AREAS OF THE COUNTRY WILL BE FLOODED. THIS IS THE NATURE OF CANDABA SWAMP WHICH IS THE LOWEST PART OF THE TOWN OF CANDABA. I WENT TO THE PLACE TO SHOOT EGRETS. WHEN I ARRIVED I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE RICE PADDIES WERE UTTERLY DESTROYED BY THE STORM. PLEASE READ YAHOO MAIL AND READ ABOUT THE MASASAMPANO MASSACRE. YOU CAN ALSO VIEW YOUTUBE AND FIND OUT WHY I CANNOT COMMENT ON MANY OF YOUR PHOTOS,. THIS IS TO GIVE ME

TIME TO WITNESS THE NEWS ANOUT OUR POLICE SPECIAL ACTION FORCE WHICH WAS KILLED BRUTALLY BY MUSLIMS

KNOWN AS THE MORO IISLAMIC LIBERATION FORCE. THE POLICE WAS ABL TO KILL THE INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST MARWAN. WHO IS FROM MALAYSIA AND WHOSE BROTHER IS IN JAIL IN THE US. SORRY, I HAVE TO GO NOW.

THIS IS A CHAPEL IN BOCAUE, BULACAN, IT IS NESTELED IN A FARMER;S HAVEN. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE TOWN IS IN A FIESTA ALL DECORATED IN BUNTINGS. I MADE THE SHOT WITH MY CANON 7D AND THE EF24-105 L IS LENS. IT IS OF MOST RECENT DESIGN. I LOVE GOING TO BOCAUE, ON MY WAY TO CANDABA SWAMP. BOTH ARE IN BULACAN AND CANDABA IS IN PAMPANGA. TO THOSE WHO VIEW, COMMENT AND FAVE MY PHOTO, IT IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED.YOU CAN SEE RICK GRAINS BEING DRIED ON THE GROUNDS OF THE CHAPEL

In the morning fun when no one will be,

Drinkin anymore wine

I wake the Sun up,

By givin him a fresh share

full of the wind cup

 

And I won't be found in the shadows hiding,

Sorrow

I can wait for fate, to bring to me,

Any part of my tomorrow....tomorrow

 

Cause it's oh...oh so peaceful here

No one bending over my shoulder

Nobody breathing in my ear.

Oh uh oh... it's oh so peaceful here

on our way to our destination, arayat mountain, we came across this plane sitting by the side of the road. flickr instinct came in, what a interesting photo this would be. at first we thought that the plane could have made an emergency landing here before but upon further inspection it turns out that it was deliberately brought here. after more some queries we were told that the hull of the plane would become a road diner, cool! this would certainly attract a lot of visitors someday

WHEN I WENT TO THE BIRD SANCTUARRY OF CANDABA SWAMP, I MADE TWO SHOTS AND PROCESSED IT TO BLACK AND WHITE. THESE IMAGES SHOW THE PARTS WHERE MIGRANT BIRDS SEEK FOOD AND PROTECTION. TODAY, THERE IS NO MORE EASY ACCESS TO THE SITE. EVERYBODY MUST SKIRT THE RICE PADDY SITES. I USED MY CANON 7D AND THE EF 24-105 L IS LENS.

HAVING BEEN ABLE TO TAKE A FRONT SHOT, I STAYED STILL FOR A WHILE TO LET THE SUBJECT GO FARTHER FROM ME. IN JUST 5 MINUTES, THE BOYS MADE A LEFT TURN. LATER, WHEN I WENT BACK TO MY CAR, AND DROVE OFF TO THE RICE FIELDS OF THE CANDABA MAYOR, I WAS JUST TOO

TIRED. THERE WAS STILL THE SIGNS OF DESTRUCTION. THE RICE FIELDS WERE SWAMPED WITH SAND AND GRAVEL. THE RICE FIELDS WERE JUST WASTED. THE PLACE IS ABOUT A HALF KILOMETER FARTHER DOWN THE ROAD.

I STILL REMEMBER WHEN I WENT TO CANDABA SWAMP ONE MORNING AND BROUGHT ALONG WITH ME MY NIKON D7000 AND CANON 7D. THE NIKON CAME WITH TWO LENSES, THE 12-24 DX VR AND 28-300 FX VR LENS. MY CANON 7D CAME WITH THE 24-105 F/4 IS LENS. THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO VIEWED, COMMENTED AND FAVED MY PHOTOS.

I WENT TO CANDABA TO MAKE SOME SHOTS. I HAD MY NIKON D7000 WITH THE 12-24 DX VR LENS. I ALSO HAD MY NIKON D800E WITH THE 28.-300 FX VR LENS. I LOVE THE SKY AND I HOPED THE WHOLE TRIP THAT THE SKY WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL BUT I NEVER EXPECTED THIS. THE RICE PADDIES WAS NOT PLANTED TO RICE AS THERE WAS A RECENT FLASH FLOOD. THANKS TO ALL WHO VIEW, COMMENT AND FAVE MY PHOTOS.

ONCE IN CANDABA SWAMP, I BROUGHT MY NIKON D300 WITH THE FX 70-200 VR F/2.8 I HAD MY OTHER LENSES WITH ME BUT THERE WAS NO TIME TO CHANGE IT. SO I JUST HAD TO USE IT. THESE BOYS WERE DOING THEIR PARENTS A NICE JOB OF TRANSFERRING THE DUCKS TO ANOTHER PLACE OF HABITAT FOR THE DUCKS. THIS WAS WHEN THE CANDABA SWAMP WAS FLOODED BY A TYPHOON AND DUCKS JUST FLOATED DOWN THE WATER LEVEL. SOME BREEDERS WERE ABLE TO SAVE THEIRS WHEN THEY PENNED THE DUCKS ON HIGHER GROUNDS. MY SHOT WAS UNPLANNED, HAD TO RUSH TO THE OTHER SIDE JUST TO FOCUS ON THE SUBJECT.

IN ONE OF MY TRIPS TO CANDABA, YOU CAN SEE MT. ARAYAT FROM THE EAST. THIS WAS TAKEN AFTER A HEAVY MOONSOON SEASON AND THE CANDABA SWAMP

WAS LITERALLY SWAMPED WITH WATER.

I DROVE TO SAN LUIS, PAMPANGA AND PROMPTLY LOST MY WAY. EVENTUALLY, I FOUND MY WAY PAST NO ROADS, DIRT ROADS, AND LOTS OF GRASSES AND RICE. I FOUND MY SELF EAST OF MT. ARAYAT. THE NEXT TOWN IS CANDABA BUT IN BETWEEN CANDABA AND SAN LUIS IS THIS VAST AREA OF NOTHINGNESS. MY. ARAYAT IS A DORMANT VOLCANO WITH THE FAINT RESEMBLANCE TO A DEAD WOMAN. I TOOK MY NIKON D800E AND 28-300 FX VR LENS WITH ME

LAST SUMMER, I WENT TO CANDABA TO WITNESS WHAT THE FLASH FLOOD DID TO THE RICE FIELDS OF CANDABA. IT WAS FLOODED WITH GRAVEL AND SAND. THERE WONT BE RICE PLANTED THIS YEAR BUT INSTEAD THERE WILL BE CLEANING OF THE RICE FIELDS. AND THEN THE MIGRATORY BIRDS WILL HAVE ANOTHER SEASON WITH US. I MADE THIS SHOT WITH MY NIKON D7000 AND 70-200 FX VR F/2.8 IF SOMEBODY KNOWS THE BIRD, THANKS FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF THIS BIRD. I ALMOST DID NOT SEE IT.

My first attempt to capture the sunset as I do most of my sunrises and sunsets.

 

This was made by a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VY and a Nikon

2X telconvertwe.

 

This is being made to enable me to buy time to edit my Candaba

fiesta shots yesterday which gave me a problematical time which meant 1) no time to eat lunch 2) insormountable aches and pain and

3) not so good exposure for the fiesta shots which 4) came as a

surprised too for being to LATE from about 8:00 am to again

4:00.
