Batanes • Mad about cows v.2

The first time i stepped into Batanes four years ago, I described it as a balm for weary eyes and restless spirits. Seeing my captures from my last trip there two weeks ago, I'd still reiterate that description. The scenery is just awesome, the people very warm, the mood of the place in sync with slowing down and introspection. I may have had a hectic shooting sked over there but seeing something that may appear mundane as this cow on the Viang pasture is a really welcome treat.

naku dom, i don't even think the description covers what batanes is and what it has to offer. you really have to experience the place and see for yourself. like what i always say, either you love batanes or hate it. i must admit, it's not for everyone because the bora partygoer will get bored fast over there not for the lack of stimuli but because the stimuli is very much different :-)

Natuwa ako sa cow na ito. Tumayo pa talaga sa mound parang talagang mag papa photo op. I really miss this place. Kung pwede lang sana bumalik every year.

puwede naman bro wulf :-) gagawan lang ng paraan :-D i agree with you. i'll never tire of batanes. i'm reminded of what we talked about while aboard a habal-habal in siquijor - sarap magretire dito :-)) if i win the lotto or stumble upon a fortune, i'll probably build a bpo business along with a bed and breakfast/library cafe right there in one of batan's coastal areas.

Wow! This is a terrific shot. I love the cow! What beautiful landscape. This one was a treat

thanks travis. if i may say so, it's the kind of landscape that most people don't associate with the philippines but it's right here in batanes, our northernmost island group :-) will share more captures as i can upload them.
