Serenity on the beach

Sunrise in Dahican by Jojie Alcantara

“Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me.” ~ Albert Schweitzer

Dahican at Daybreak (Mati, Davao Oriental)
Jojie Alcantara, May 2012

Dahican, the popular and most beautiful beach in my birthplace Mati, is an extended strip of stunning white beach lined with coconut trees, facing sparkling turquoise waters that ebb and flow wildly into the Pacific, inviting adventurous skimboarders to surf in glee. When I am in Mati, I always arrange for my early (4am) sunrise shoot, and I always get a different sunrise each time, one as spectacular as the other.

In line with the coming PUJADA BAY FESTIVAL of Mati this June, we are announcing our travel photography workshop on June 18-19, which includes the sunrise shoot along Dahican.
