Reflections at Twin Beach, Nacpan-Calitang (El Nido, Palawan): Photo of the Day

We’ve pondered long and hard whether to post this photo. For one, we’ve featured Allan Pineda in a previous post, and people might begin to think we’re playing favorites (check his Instagram acount, @allan_lira, for more wonderful photos). But the talent to be at the right place at the right moment, and the talent to stand at the proper vantage point to capture an awesome photo as a priceless remembrance, cannot be denied. So we’re featuring him again, with this awesome photo at Twin Beach, Nacpan-Calitang (El Nido, Palawan) that hooked us, making it impossible for us, or anyone for that matter, not to share it with the world. It took around 4 seconds for us to figure out the photo’s proper orientation, and, after doing some flipping, it took more than 60 seconds for us to wipe off the smiles off our faces. We won’t be surprised that this kind of view is one of the million reasons why Philippine wanderers, both foreigners and Filipinos alike, fall in love with this beautiful country. We won’t get tired of saying, go ahead visit the Philippines, took some wonderful photos, then tell the world what’s beautiful about Pinas. Click the photo to enlarge.

Face Off at Twin Beach, El Nido, Palawan: Photo of the Day

We’ve been terribly inactive before and during the holidays, not so much because we’re gorged with the usual Christmas delicacies, but because there’s just so much things to do and people to visit over the look vacation. After all, Christmas in the Philippines is also about the family. So, 20 pounds later, as we start the new year, we’re at a loss where to start with our featured photos. The news items we’ve seen so far don’t inspire a jolly disposition, and it feels like 2017 is shaping up to be another daunting year. Nevertheless, as we browsed throught the Instagram photos tagged #visitpinas, we noticed this photo by Allan Pineda (check his Instagram acount, @allan_lira, for more photos), facing the angry waves in Twin Beach, Nacpan-Calitang, El Nido, Palawan. This photo captures the preferred disposition as we start the year — the happy fortitude and contagious resilience in facing whatever life throws our way. Join us as we embark on another year exploring the Philippines, and, of course, telling the world how beautiful it truly is. Have fun! Click the photo to enlarge.
