I love aerial photography

Serving as a memorial and a symbol of the rich biodiversity of our seas, DAVOR’s immense skeletal display (almost complete except for the teeth, one fin and an eardrum) will be open to the public on January 8, 2014 in Subangan Davao Oriental Provincial Museum in the Tourism Provincial Complex, Mati City.
It was one of the most memorable scenes I’ve ever experienced as a photojournalist. The image above shows how everyone was taking photos of a glorious sunset from the horizon. Behind us, however, a thunderstorm was menacingly brewing. And this kid whose expression I have captured, just turned and witnessed Mother Nature’s tempestuous unpredictability at its best. Quite overwhelming when you are at sea.
In this special Holiday Season, I am sharing the joys of Christmas all the way from my beloved Davao City
