Rainbow Connection (with Mayon) © Jojie Alcantara 2010
“My soul is in the sky.” ~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
I captured beauty in the skies when I saw two perfect creations of Mother Nature in the same frame. It was a very clear day, and I was lucky to be flying closer to my dream volcano, the perfect Mount Mayon (Philippines’ dangerous beauty and most active, I grew up just seeing it on my textbooks).
It was raining on the other side of the mountain. As we hovered around it, from gray clouds emerged a rainbow. It blew me away.
It was an emotional moment for me. Mother Nature was telling me there is always a rainbow after any storm.
This was one of the photos published in Mabuhay Magazine Sept 2010 issue featuring my shots of Mount Mayon from a chopper.
