Talon Para kay Mayon (Mayon Volcano, Albay): Photo of the Day

It’s not the first time that we’ve featured this sexy volcano, Mt. Mayon, better known as the world’s perfect volcano cone (we’ve wrestled with the use of “most perfect cone” and thought there’s no need to use “most” if it’s already “perfect”) . Mayon Volcano can be very coy, usually out of sight, covered by thick clouds most of the day. We’re going to let you in on a secret: go to Mount Mayon before 7:00 in the morning and you’ll have a better chance of seeing the volcano in all its glory. It’s worth every ounce of strength you summon to wake up real early. You’ll jump (“talon,” a Filipino word, means “jump”) when you see it, either out of sheer joy or for plain fun. Take, for instance, Kristine Labayen Reyes (check her Instagram account, @krissyseyer, for more photos), who captioned her photo below: “Jump for joy! Mayon volcano is out at last showing her perfect cone shape.” That’s one helluva split jump, don’t you think?

Mayon the Sexy Volcano: Photo of the Day

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. Continue reading Mayon the Sexy Volcano: Photo of the Day

She’s so beautiful. The moment we emerged from the tree canopies and the clouds lifted, there she was, the perfect cone volcano that we’ve only read about. We’ve seen the photos. We’ve  heard the stories. But nothing prepared us for this moment. We were in awe upon seeing Mount Mayon. To use the more current language, OMG, she rocks, big time! That’s literally figuratively speaking. Continue reading The Cagsawa Ruins and the Beautiful Mayon Volcano
