PhotoHunt#5 Blue


Blue skies, blue sea and a bluish silhouette of the mountains in the background…what more can you ask for. This picture was taken while we were on a boat for our summer outing last year.

The island is called the Vanishing Island located between the Davao City and Samal Island. It is called as such as like most sandbars, it vanishes during high tide. This island is memorable for me because some years ago, an incident here almost ”vanished” us off on the face of the earth. Nonetheless, this place is really beautiful.

So beautiful!!! As I often say, scenes or pictures like this make me a believer! Daming magandang lugar sa atin na makukumpara sa iba't ibang lugar sa mundo. Coming from the west coast, I would say our waters are far still the best in temperature, tempting you to dive!!!
