Here’s a little throwback. This photo was taken at the summit of Mt. Dulan Dulang during our 3 day trek across the Kitanglad Mountain range. Mt. Dulang Dulang is the second tallest mountain in the Philippines, and is sacred ground for the local tribes. Before scaling up the mountain, climbers must first secure a government permit that must be signed by the local Datu (tribal chief) after a short briefing and cleansing ceremony.  In the photo is one of our guides, and the shirts we were trying to dry in the sun.

On a return trip from Cebu I arrived at the farm around 12am. While looking up at the stars, I noticed a white haze in the sky. It was traces of the Great Rift. I grabbed my camera and had all the perimeter and poultry lights turned off. I stayed up til 2am snapping photos. Some of them turned out really well despite the fact that I’m a newbie at Astrophotography.

It was a blisteringly hot day, and I was standing out in the Sun overseeing our workers planting Sugarcane, when I noticed that I had suddenly been covered in shade. I looked up to see a little cloud, and could clearly make out the “God Rays” it was giving off. It was beautiful, I had to snap a photo. “It looks like a gate to Heaven.” I said to myself. “Heaven’s Gate, that’s what I’ll call it…”
