gloomy morning - boracay island

waking up early is not a usual thing to do in this island. many would prefer to wake up late to relax more. but definitely not for me.for the four days that i was there, i woke up as early as 5:30am everyday to witness how the beach looks like early morning.in the morning, one can either jog, bike or pick up some shells along the still untamed beach. i should say that it's the sweetest time to see how beautiful Boracay is.
one can see the beach shore bare. during low tide, it can form sand bars where one can run around. swimming at this time of the day though, will be challenging as the water is cold.on this particular day, it was a little gloomy. i was there during the off-peak season which means rain can come anytime. yet i believe that Boracay is still as beautiful whether you are there during the sunny or the rainy season.since i owe Mel a tag, then i'll have to include it here:
A. Attached or single?
single.
B. Best friend? too many. i even have a hard time defining a best friend as i almost consider everyone as my best friend.
C. Cake or pie? cake.
D. Day of choice? Saturday!
E. Essential item/s? camera, laptop, cellphone and the Bible.
F. Favorite color? blue.
G. Gummy bears or worms? none.
H. Hometown?
pueblo makamiedo
I. Favorite indulgence? chocolate and ice cream.
J. January or July? January
K. Kids? none yet.L. Life isn’t complete without? love. naks!
M. Marriage date? soon. soon.
N. Number of magazine subscriptions: none yet, ill start subscribing next year.
O. Oranges or apples? apples.
P. Phobias? deep sea diving.
Q. Quotes? "manalo, matalo, masaya pa rin"
R. Reasons to smile? good people around.
S. Season of choice? sunny days.
T. Tag 5 people. Just anyone who wants to do it.
U. Unknown fact about me? i like African music.
V. Vegetable? carrots.
W. Worst habit? reading travel magazines (due to the many travel magazines that i've been reading lately)
X. X-ray or ultrasound? huh!?
Y. Your favorite foods? lumpia.
Z. Zodiac sign? Gemini

buti nalang walang snow sa Pilipinas...but I often wonder how this beautiful would look like if we have winter here....coz mapa-sunny or rainy pamana. Boracay is still drop-dead-gorgeous.

PUSANG-gala said...

til Wednesday lang. Best rerds Dom---you really run with the big guys. Sabi ko naman sayo saka mo na akop yayain. I'm not yet ready. keke

Photo Cache said...

I think if I ever go to Boracay, I would opt to go during the off season too. More beach for me.

I like the meme, maybe I will swipe it from you :)

Antoine GF said...

paradise galore!!!
yeah! lurve it.
i hope people will be more concerned for our natural wonderz...

ur welcome gli dong...! heheh

Aisha said...

Early morning at the beach is really beautiful. I love the peace and the cool air. You have amazing shots! I really wish I can go there.

Mys Lyke Meeh said...

This is the aura during early morning? Wow--so peaceful. I like the ambiance, the seas and white sands! Wish I can be there...but there are many whites here though (you know!) lolz...

Borneo Falcon said...

So nice of you to wake up so early to capture those moments

SandyCarlson said...

I am glad you are an early riser! These are marvelous.

jessforget said...

wow beach!!! ganda!

PS. thanks for dropping by my blogs bro

MeL said...

Naalala ko na naman ang buhangin dyan. Sobrng pino at ang sarap magpaikot-ikot. Parang kama lang! lol. Salamat sa pagsagot sa tag at sa walang sawang pagbisita sa site ko. Ano nga bang pinagkakabalahan mo dyan? :D

Mahilig ka siguro sa arts aside from photography. At saan naman ang hometown mo - pueblo makamiedo?

alicesg said...

Hahaha...you are right about the waking up part. 5.30 am is too early for me during the holiday, would rather relax and sleep a while more..lol. Beautiful photos. Nice to know some facts about you. Are we hearing wedding bells soon? Please take some photos of how a wedding in philippines looked like. Should be very different from my recently posted wedding pictures in my post. Have a nice week ahead.

Nanaybelen said...

ang ganda talaga ang Bora... kahit anong oras.

Luke Wiley said...

Even when it's gloomy it's still beautiful!

merce h:) said...

Super talaga sa ganda ang boracay,kahit litrato mo lang dong,feeling ko...nakarating na ako.

Salamat s'yo ng marami dong!

ano na naman ang next destination mo,pagkatapos ng boracay?

the donG said...

>pusang-gala, hahaha... maybe our beaches wont be as beautiful kung may snow. that's the advantage of being a tropical country.

big guys nga sila pero hindi naman ibig sabihin na malaking tao ka na rin. kung alam mo lang kung gaano ka simpleng tao sila, siguradong matutuwa ka. humble mostly ang mga backpackers.

>photo cache, there's both advantage and disadvantage of going to boracay during the peak and the off peak season. as long as there's no typhoon coming in, you'll definitely enjoy boracay during the off peak season.

i'll be posting some tips on going to boracay in the coming post. not sure when yet. just keep in touch.

>antoine, sana nga maalagaan ng mabuti ang boracay. salamat ulit sa header.

>hi aisha, thanks. that's the best time to enjoy beach side view with less people.

>hi myslykemeeh, hahaha... hope you get there someday and make sure not to miss out waking up early morning to see its undisturbed beauty.

>borneo, yes. it's worth waking up early.

>hi sandy, thanks.

>jessforget, salamat din bro.

>hi mel, matagal na itong byahe ko sa boracay. ngayon ko lang napopost kasi sa dami ng nabibisita kong lugar nung time na yon. natatawa naman ako sa paikot ikot mo dun sa buhangin.

mana sa tatay ang arts pero hindi rin ako ganun kagaling sa arts. hanggang tingin lang talaga. hehehe... yung pueblo makamiedo, yan ang misteryo. hehehe...

>hi alicesg, wedding bells? not yet. hehehe... it's just a soon-to-post. i think wedding here is close to those in the western part of the world. slightly similar to that in your country too. havent had the chance to feature wedding pictures yet.

>hi nanaybelen, tama po kayo dyan. sa hapon lang medyo marami na talagang tao.

>luke, you're right. i thought you're back in the blogosphere.

>hi merce, next destination ay ang northern at central area ng luzon.

EM said...

I like the simple, quiet look of the beach. It seemed like it's sleeping and snoring peacefully awaiting the sun to kiss them awake gently. Reminds me of my early morning days watching my babies sleep and kissing them and watch them stir contently.... glorious!

nice, nice, nice ...

Blue Rose said...

uy, hindi ko napansin yan ganyan noong nsa bora kami. palibhasa'y tamad magsibangon kapag umaga dahil puyat galing sa gimik pag gabi. hahaha. ganda pala noh!

aquamarine said...

up to where in northern luzon?so when did you go there?im eager to read your posts on that..maganda pa rin ang boracay kaya im kinda hesitant to feature beaches here in HK..

Rob (Inukshuk Adventure) said...

When I visit the beach I love to be out first thing in the morning, being the only one out there.

Thanks for your visit. I'll come and get some wonderful sun in your world and you can marvel at the snow in mine!

~~m$. DoNNA~~ said...

daan lang ako dito... bisita lang poh!

Sidney said...

Single...and yet no children... ;-)
Biro lang.

Wonderful images... looks so peaceful and wonderful.

cyndirellaz said...

wow! gusto ko din pumunta dyan!! nice pictures din!! nakakaengganyo pumunta dyan!!

nga po pala, pa add ng link ^^ thanks!!

the donG said...

>hi em, well described. it is indeed like that. hehehe... sweet sweet morning.

>hi blue rose, hehehe... sarap nga matulog pagkatapos gumimik. pero at least once try mo rin gumising ng maaga. para makita mo ang natural nitong kagandahan.

>hi aquamarine, last month kami nasa central and north luzon. abangan dahil magkasama kami dun nila lawstude.

alam ko may maganda nga ding beach sa hk. feature mo yan dahil marami pang hindi nakapunta dun.

>rob, hahaha... same here. even though how tired i was the previous day, waking up early in the morning is still worth doing.

in that way our blog will complement. hehehe...

>hi ms donna, salamat sa pagdaan.

>sidney, maraming salamat! hehehe... you made me laugh.

>cyndirellaz, kaka enganyo talaga. thanks. i will.

sheng said...

Wow, when we were there, we woke up at 6 but had to tour the island for pandesal as they seem so malayo from where we stayed, haha... anyways, cool pics. Nasa Bora kami October 18-21, kelan nga kayo? Alam ko magkasunod lang tayo eh...huri

Mayyang said...

wow! nakarelaxing naman dyan...hehehe

how i wish makapunta ako dyan...naku!

Skippyheart said...

still beautiful kahit na gloomy pa--

L. Life isn’t complete without? love. naks! he! he! cool, my kind of answer ;)

Theonoski said...

i also prefer to walk in the beach early morning coz nakakarelaks sha plus konti lang ung tao sa beach.
ganda ng kuha mo dong sa beach eventhough mdyo gloomy yung panahon =D.

luna miranda said...

this is the boracay i love...quiet except for the gentle sounds of the sea.

REDLAN said...

I like the 2nd picture. Ako kapag bago sa isang lugar lalo na sa probinsiya, gumigising ako ng maaga para maasilyan ang sunrise except kapag rainy season. Sa bora gumising ako ng maaga pero huh hindi ko nasilayan ang sunrise dahil nasa station 2 kami at hindi makikita ang paglitaw ng araw dun.

aha life is not complete without love at bakit single ka pa? jokes.

fear mo pala ang deep diving ha. lol. bakit naman naging worst habit ang pagbasa ng travel magazine?

Miong said...

nice gyud and shore line sa boracay, nidot kaau skiman!

Lawstude said...

bro, mapaumaga, mapagabi, at kahit ano yata oras nakuhanan mo sa boracay ah. di ka ba natulog? hehehe. ayos to, ganda ng mga shots.

Joops said...

You must be living in Boracay man hehehe....You're very lucky!

misty said...

oiiist parehas tayo Gemini hehehe..

chubskulit said...

why do you think, reading travel magazines is your worst habit? I think its great...

JM said...

Beautiful light at a stunning beach!

the donG said...

>hi sheng, i can imagine how you've walked to find that pandesal. hehehe.. we were there from Sept 30 till October 3.

>hi mayyang, relaxing nga pag sa umaga kaya lang dapat din matulog ng maaga para hindi antukin. hehehe...

>hi rebecca, you're right. hahaha...

>theonoski, salamat. sakto ka dyan. lalo na sa boracay, konti lang talaga ang tao pag ganung oras. kaya sayong sayo lang ang beach.

>hi luna, same here. that time of the day is the sweetest time in boracay.

>redlan, ako din hindi ko nakita ang sunrise ng buo kasi tinamad akong pumunta sa bulabog beach. the second photo is also my favorite in this set.

life is not complete without? love. "at bakit single ka pa?" >hahaha... yung love naman para sa lahat. di ba?

fear is deep diving> true kasi medyo wala ka ng makita pag deep diving. sanay ako sa snorkeling lang kung saan kita lahat.

worst habit - pagbasa ng travel magazine.> naging bisyo ko na kasi. hehehe...

>miong, sakto bai. bisan sa bantayan pwede pod kaayo.

>oman, hahaha... parang hindi nga eh. siguro yung mga alas dos hanggang alas kwatro na lang ang hindi ko nakuha.

>joops, i was there just for four days. i just post the photos one by one for the people to see boracay in many angle and aspect.

>hi misty, let's celebrate! kaya lang tagal pa pala. hehehe...

>hi chubskulit, worst because i read a lot of it lately as i am planning for a business in this industry.

>jm, it definitely is a stunning beach.

cza said...

blog-hop. nice shots. I shall wake up early and try to catch the same scenery on my next Bora trip. :)

Asian Traveler said...

What a stunning view and very peaceful. So good to relax just sitting on the sand, admiring the sights and hearing the sounds of the waves.

I'm also one of the "third astrological sign in the Zodiacs", Gemini. :)

Shionge said...

I am totally smitten by the vast clear blue sky and sandy beaches :)

mars said...

ang ganda tlga ng pilipinas noh..gusto ko din pumunta ng bora..pagkapanganak ko..

Maya said...

It really look so calm.I would be walking at this time.

I need to put aside again my plans on going home.Sayang,i've found pa naman the right fare for us.

I'll settle to see boracay na lang through your eyes.

Raft3r said...

totoo yan
yun late gumising kapag nasa bora
never yata ako gumisng na maaga dyan, eh
but your photos are amazing
masubukan nga gunmising ng maaga dyan sa susunod

Mitz said...

i love your bora pics :) im going to boracay next week! i cant wait :)

Mariale said...

Life isn't complete without love.

But how do you define love :p
Same here, chocolate and ice cream are my indulgence! Plus, plus +books.

Can I grab this tag?

Victor said...

The water is so clean. Wish to bath there!! haha

mavs said...

nice pix u got there...

ganda talaga ng Bora...

Share my point of view... said...

"Phobias? deep sea diving."

I'm rather surprised by it. :O

Shawie said...

oh, nice shots:) very relaxing...that's just the best time(dawn) to go out and explore when not too many people around:)
so, you have a lot of best friends too? I had the same problem defining that word either, hahaha!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

You're still in Bora, dong?

Bry said...

ibat ibang anyo ng BORA. Nice idea The DONG...

why are u afraid of deep sea diving? that's my dream :)

MeL said...

Natawa ako kay Lawstude. Napnsin ko rin yun ha. Di ka yata nagpahinga sa kakakuha ng pics sa Boracay. lol. Buti may spare bat ka or mabilis lang talaga ma-charge ang batt mo. Joke lang.

Kuya Dong, sabihin mo na kung saan yun. ung misteryo.. hehe. Bulong molang sa akin. Secret lang natin, pramis. :D

Allan Barredo said...

the 3rd photo is a fave bro. I love the subtle lighting and the pastel hues

Bengbeng said...

i havent stepped on a beah for a very long time. how i wish i had a chanz. perhaps i will during my coming holiday. the beaches look so clean and deserted. beauiful. gloomy? not really. i love it when it is like that

Heart of Rachel said...

Lovely photos! Only proves that Boracay is beautiful any time of the day.

Pietro said...

Really it's worth waking up early in the morning to photograph such beautiful beaches.

L.Reis said...

I was reaaly impressed by the quality of the light captured in these pictures...You're a lucky guy...your eyes "travel" around beauty...
