Marinduque: Silhouette romance

Pardon my borrowing the title of a series of popular romance novel books from the 80s but i felt like using it to paint a picture of how much i love shooting silhouettes. Our short trip to Marinduque presented some nice opportunities to do so even with the foreboding weather as evidenced from this series of shots -- from the shoreline of Reyes Park in Gasan to the sunrise shores of Gaspar Island.
Any which way you look at it, Marinduque is a beautiful place to explore -- for its scenic views and for its warm people.A nd you don't need to wait for the crowds to flock in during the Lenten Moriones Festival to see what it has to offer either.J ust pack your bags, brave the long waiting during the trip and enjoy the scenes.

the title is forgiven, hehe. love the silouettes too. it imbibes a certain feeling especially if you captured it really well. ika nga ng friend ko: "it unleashes the corny side in you!" You meaning Me.

Your photos told me that I missed a lot when I did not go with a friend to Marinduque when I was still in Pinas. I hope I will have a second opportunity when I come visiting.

the harder the trip, the more beautiful and worth it the destination becomes :)

I think the Moriones Festival is an added asset of this wonderful island.

hi rayts, i'm glad the images evoked feelings of mush and corniness :D i think everyone deserves moments of mush (and that includes myself hahaha)

bert, do keep marinduque on your itinerary next time you visit.

bai allan, true words you've said

sidney, i agree. am not much into festivals myself but i do agree that the moriones festival is one big attraction for marinduque.

the title is a perfect fit for photos so no apology is necessary. ang galing ng mga kuha, parang lay-out sa isang period movie. great job.
