the norte series - ilocos

the North of Luzon island has so much in store for backpackers, whether it would be historical landmarks or great scenic views. given a short period of time over a long weekend, i decided to just focus on the great coastal sights.hopping from one part of the coast to the other was a bit challenging but traveling along with some of my travel buddies scud, lawstude, lantaw, jonee and fhei made it one of my most memorable trip this year.join us as we feature Ilocos Norte in the norte series. photos here were taken when the sun was rising over a moody morning.

What a beautiful place to go to, i dunno if my trip to Luzon will be that memorable as we will be going to Pangasinan and sidetrip to Baguio, doesn't look like fine moment for vacationing...

Moody it is. Especially what happened to them. Because of the greed of a few, Mother Nature punish us all.

Dennis Villegas said...

Bengbeng said...

i agree with alicesg. that particular pic had a lot of potential to be an outstanding shot. if the photographer had been a lady in bikini :) just kidding :) still i really like the first pic very much. i often take pics like that. doesnt come out well sometimes. the light conditions have to b just right

I'm looking forward to this series because I've never been to Ilocos yet. =)

Hilda said...

The photos look almost monochrome. Amazing. Looking forward to this series.

I answered your question yesterday in my post today. ;)

Be very glad if you weren't there. They announced that the event was at 5pm but it actually started 7:45!! Needless to say, we older folks got mighty pissed off.

Hilda said...

Just read Dennis' comment. You were there? Sayang we didn't meet you. I was looking for Dennis after to introduce myself but didn't see him either.
