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

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

It eats shrimp, fish, insects, and vegetation, and it frequents all types of wetlands.

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.

Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea)

 

The Purple Heron is a large bird, 80-90 cm tall, with a 120-150 cm wingspan, but slender for its size, weighing only 0.5-1.3 kg. It is somewhat smaller than the Grey Heron, from which it can be distinguishes by its darker reddish-brown plumage, and, in adults, darker grey back. It has a narrower yellow bill, which is brighter in breeding adults.

 

The Purple Heron breeds in colonies in reed beds or trees close to large lakes or other extensive wetlands. It builds a bulky stick nest.

 

It feeds in shallow water, spearing fish, frogs or insects with its long, sharp bill. It will often wait motionless for prey, or slowly stalk its victim. It tends to keep within reedbeds more than the Grey Heron, and is often inconspicuous, despite its size.

 

It has a slow flight, with its neck retracted. This is characteristic of herons and bitterns, and distinguishes them from storks, cranes and spoonbills, which extend their necks. The long neck of Purple Heron looks particularly snake-like, with more of an S-shape in flight. The call is a loud croaking "krek".

 

The Purple Heron is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies.

For the sun rises with a scorching wind and withers the grass; and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away.

the spaniards were so impressed with the town of candaba when they first discovered this in 1590 that they called it 'little castilla'. they celebrated their arrival with the building of the church of st andrews made of light local materials. the stone church was completed by 1669. as the town flourished so did the size of the church. the dome was added in 1878 and the bell towers by 1880. the church was restored after a strong typhoon damaged it in 1960. the church has had recent retouch and renovations but one can still appreciate the beauty and charm of its historical design
