The picture above shows the beautiful views below the steep road going to Baguio City via Kayapa-Ambuklao road, another way to the summer capital of the Philippines. The pictures in this blog were taken inside a moving vehicle-so the photos would be called Mountain Speed Photos. Stunning shots, I hope you will appreciate as you go through my photo essays.
For someone like me who spend most of my time away from the mountains, I really appreciate the views of clouds kissing the mountains, trees-pine trees and other species hanging to cliffs, weeds that uniformly grows and wither together, blue and green bodies of water, and the fresh air that brushes to my cheeks—I’m a romanticist of nature:)
I am blessed to witness God’s love through beautiful scenery, the photos were taken on March 2016 approaching summer time. I wasn’t bored at the long winding road because I was thrilled to take pictures while our vehicle was moving. I am glad that I took good pictures of the sight along the road.
The DPWH maintains the roads and road sides to be clean and very welcoming for riders, visitors and photo enthusiast like me.
Water is really important and very beautiful, it supports life, richness of the earth, and essential for every human body, spirit, and soul. I would like to add quotes from http://www.brainyquote.com/ for the photos I took for more appeal and meaning:)
It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees. (George Eliot)
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. (e. e. Cummings)
We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans – because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That’s why we paint, that’s why we dare to love someone – because we have the impulse to explain who we are. (Maya Angelou)
Ministers are powerless people who have nothing to boast of except their weaknesses. But when the Lord whom they serve fills them with His blessing they will move mountains and change the hearts of people wherever they go. (Henri Nouwen)
Take the back roads instead of the highways. (Minnie Pearl)
You climb to reach the summit, but once there, discover that all roads lead down. (Stanislaw Lem)
The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines. (Charles Kuralt)
Nature best teaches how to pray, and how to reverence all the gifts the Almighty has given us. She is like a vast outspread handkerchief, embroidered with God’s eternal name, on which we may dry alike our tears of sorrow and of joy; she turns weeping into ecstasy, and fills our hearts with speechless, quiet reverence and resignation. (Robert Schumann)
Although the dry river and the dry hills are alarming, I am hoping that this event shall pass through God’s grace and with the understanding that it’s summer time and the world is getting hotter.
Distinguished wildfire was caught on my camera. I salute the firemen who responded and did their duty:)
God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars. (Martin Luther) — that’s can be the reason why I love to take pictures of them- their unique stand, uniformity with each other, unique branches, leaves and flowers, their reaction to the soil, climate, and topography.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. (Vince Lombardi)—whether with profit or loss, the folks living in the area shown at the photos were remarkably hard-working and, their work is really appreciated by me. The photos show what I call veggie terraces:)
