Batanes • Beauty on the edge

By this time, it seems i'm in a phase of travel glamour photography.  This is third in a series of beauty in Batanes, excerpts from my Seair InFlight Magazine output. This one was taken at what the Ivatans call Marlboro Hills, named as such because of the dramatic rolling terrain that call to mind the imagery used as a backdrop for ciggarette-smoking cowboys.

fantastic shot oggie. although i must admit that i pity the model for she is just few inches away from the cliff. buti di dumausdos.

oman, i assure you she was perfectly okay :-) she's an ivatan and was always a picture of grace even in locations like this where one step may mean meeting the cliff and the rocks below

Whoa! That's a perilous pose. It's good you did not tell her, "Move back a little and give me a big smile." LOL.

thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment bert. hahaha, i wouldn't dare do it because i wouldn't dare follow that instruction myself. besides, i'd run the risk of forever being barred to go back to batanes if ever because our model is the granddaughter of the governor :-)

lupit ng shot na to. parag delikadong delikado. pero galing naman ng shot. bihira yung ganitong angle na kuha kasi delikado pero galing at nagawa ninyo.

dom, medyo nga. but i assure you, buhay na buhay pa naman kami after this shoot, hahaha. tell you a secret, meron akong fear of heights pero i try not to be afraid on times like these :-)

which reminds me, it was my birthday when you were there. raining cats and dogs naman sa manila (frank) while its sunny and clear blue skies in batanes. It could have been fun sana if you were on vacation with friends heheh. At least my birthday wasnt a stormy day after all :) well... in some parts of the country.
