More of Anawangin

my first time in Anawangin last year was a memorable one, despite the rain and the huge waves that come with it and some "supernatural" experience, i remember being mesmerized by its natural beauty. i promised myself to be back.

last weekend, that promise was fulfilled. Yapak Mountaineers had its first team building in Anawangin (the area, especially Pundaquit, is now the favorite location of some of boobtube's primetime soaps like Marimar, Kung Fu kids, Maging sino ka man and was featured last year in The Probe Team), and i realized that Anawangin is even more beautiful when the sun is up, when there's no rain and the water is calm.

i giggled with excitement, not with the team building but with the anticipation of a better weather for an endless photo ops! i am bad i know hehe

the team building took the whole saturday, but it doesn't stop me from taking some shots, besides, i am not the only one hehehe.

the discussions and group dynamics were fun and actively participated in (i even had a mini-monologue when the topic shifted to knowing your priorities and touched budgeting, whoa!).

anyways, when the activity was about to end, we were asked to go on the shore for meditation, but i cannot concentrate because i was facing the sun directly and it's so hot! so i just excused myself and do this. :)


after the team affirmation, lyn and i went around and explore the area to look for the best spot for sunset (we tried climbing the nearby mountain where i took one of my all-time favorite shots, naks, but give up the idea halfway as we didn't bring a headlamp/flashlight). but it doesn't dampen our spirit as i just realized that the cove itself is a good spot for sunset.


we'll be in Anawangin again next month...

Happy weekend everyone, Kanpai!

tutubi, the sooner the better! tourists are starting to crowd anawangin, and fees are now starting to be collected. punta ka na habang di pa sya nako-commercialize. :)

zherwin said...

manilenya, kelan ka ba babalik? kelangang mapasyalan mo sya!

zherwin said...

abaniko, iba talaga kapag sunset. :)

zherwin said...

atticus, isa nga ang probinsya nyo sa mga nauunang mabibiyayaan ng grasya ng pamahalaan di ba? para sa anawangin, sana mag-stay na lang syang ganyan at di maabot ng commercialization.

zherwin said...

gypsy, pag-uwi mo, idagdag ito sa mga dapat puntahan. :)

zherwin said...

carlotta, sige, gagawa ako ng how-to-go-to-anawangin post para meron tayong guide. :)

Gina said...

OH,my gosh, that's a very beautiful sunset silhouette shot of Lyn....You do have an eye for taking really nice shots Zherwin.

You should have that one printed and framed.
