PhotoHunt#21 Space

Batanes has wide space, some are used as communal pastureland they call “payaman” but some space are just idle. Nevertheless, the place is really beautiful.

It looks so beautiful and peaceful there. I love the last shot. It looks like the land is folded up like an accordion.

I hope they don't find any excuse to develop these lands!

It is hard to imagine so much space in such a beautiful setting that is undeveloped.
