Any photographer will be ecstatic to capture the beauty when mountains and beach shores converged and pine trees sprouting as a result of the ash falls mixing with grayish white sands that seemed like a mixture of pounded crystals and corals.

Phone calls and internet are impossible in this place while electricity is only through a power generator. But who needs those when you can have this beauty.

When night time falls, go lie in the sand and watch the moon and the stars or lit a bonfire and gather your friends around it.

On our first night in Bohol, I set my alarm to wake up at 5am so I can catch the breaking of dawn on our first morning in Panglao Island. Our location was perfect and it was an awesome sight watching how darkness would slowly disappear with all those beautiful colors coming into play and suddenly a gorgeous morning slowly peeking into full view. It was an awesome and majestic sight, the best sunrise I have seen so far :) Check out my photos below and be the judge.

I was inspired when I saw this feature on TV about a certain group of young adults indulging in Levitation Photography. It looks like a lot of fun so I tried it with my nephew who's very eager as well to do the trick and follow my instructions. Well, I think it came out well, no photoshop needed. What do you think? :)
