It’s not at all difficult to find a photo of Mt. Mayon, the world’s most perfect cone volcano found in Legaspi City, Albay. In fact, the centerpiece scene of the 2016 Miss World Philippines introduction video (watch here) is Mayon Volcano. Still, no matter how beautiful or majestic the view may be, seeing the same view every time makes it ordinary. And boring. Not Mayon Volcano, though. What keeps the view fresh, every time, is the endless angles to grab a photo, the reason why this photo by @hijo.de.ponggol (check his Instagram account for more beautiful photos), an amateur photographer, grabbed our attention. The focus, for us, is the gentle, sexy lower slope of the volcano. Yes, folks, curves can be sexy in volcanoes, or nature in general, as in women. Come to think of it, the Philippines is not only beautiful, it is abundantly sexy. Click the photo to enlarge.
