Picture featured: Outdoor Photographer Part 3

I've always thought that the Bilar Mahogany forest in Bohol was an awesome sight to behold. I'm glad the OP editors agree. It's gratifying to see four places in the Philippines represented in the Readers' Web Gallery of Outdoor Photographer magazine (congrats Erick for your Dingin contribution, saka na ang libre mo ha?!). Thanks again to op and of course, to the Man Upstairs.

Well done! You are putting the Philippines on the world map !
Congrats!

sidney, thank you very, very much. i must admit, noong una parang personal pride. then later on, it became a source of national pride, seeing these places alongside their foreign counterparts. i hope to keep doing that because it makes the trip all the more worthwhile.

galing. nice capture nga..

i offer though a different view of that manmade forest in bilar. if you look more closely at the forest floor, you'll notice the lack of activity i.e. absence of the bustling ecosystem present in true forests. the people who made that forest destroyed them before planting trees (mahogany?) people don't know that it's also vital to preserve the existing ecosystem before planting trees-- they uproot plants and ferns and moss and grass thereby depriving insects and other living things of natural habitat and die...look at the floor, dried leaves and stuff :(

thanks tutubi. regarding your comment, i'd like to believe they researched first before they cleared the forest floor. nature often provides natural clearing measures like bushfires, etc., to renew the forest floor. will research more into this though. anyway, thanks for dropping by :-)
