Do you love being with nature? What places have you been into where natural wonders capture your imagination?

I think many of us like to link our photography passion with nature. Philippine nature is absolutely beautiful. It’s a comfort zone. In this blog, I would like to share some photos of the places where I’ve been into in the past years, here in the Philippines and abroad, where nature is truly an amazing view.

I grew up in a town where people dependency on nature can be seen everyday. My parents were from a family of farmers and since I was four years old, I’m already seeing them working hard in the fields, nearby forests and rivers. To see the mountain views while taking your lunch under a tree in the middle of the field is worth remembering. It’s amazing to see nature being all natural.

When I started blogging in 2011, I always blend my writing with photos of nature. A picture paints a thousand words. Not all words that can be painted positively, but in a picture of nature, most people will likely paint tender words. In this blog about nature, I would paint my descriptions of them. They are nature’s wonder and I photograph them because they paint who am I as person.

When I traveled to Baguio City, Philippines with my wife last summer, flowers, pines trees and mountain views truly captured my imagination.

Here’s what reminds me more of being with nature.

My grandfather taught me many things about farming. I learned from him the basic tips on planting corns, palay, root crops, ornamental plants and vegetables. I can still remember this time in the past when I am seeing him far away in the field under the heat of the sun tilling the soil with a pickaxe. It was his daily routine to start working in the field early in the morning and goes back home at mid-noon to take his lunch. When I was a teenager, I was with my grandfather several times planting palay in a few hectares of muddy fields with the help of our carabaos. Working in the farm, with nature, is all about hardwork. Those days remind me that nature is here to give us food if we will only work hard for it.

I and my wife visited our friends in Penang, Malaysia and we were captivated with the beauty of nature surrounding this place.

As an OFW in Singapore, I spent much of my free time roving around the nature parks in this modern city.

I believe that in nature is where we will get to experience something that will lift our mind and spirit in facing our present and future life endeavors. I always want to see nature. It is great to close your eyes, feel the wind, and utter a prayer of thanks to the Creator while you are with nature.

I have several blog posts showing my big appreciation of nature. If you have the appreciation of nature too, you may read them as well. Here are the links.

I photograph nature not just because I want them to be a part of my blogs, but because I want readers to understand why caring for nature is important. I write about nature not just because a part of my life was spent together with nature, but because I want people to be closer with nature too.


About this Blog
Thank you for reading my blog. This blog, which I started in 2011, is about my vision to change everything bad that is happening in the Philippines into good. As a blogger, the only thing that I can contribute today for this vision of change to become possible is to write and share to the Filipinos and people around the world the truth about what's going on. At the end of my blogs, most of them, are suggestions, recommendations and conclusions of what actions can be possibly done in order to make the right changes to happen.

I have more plans, big plans about changing everything - one of them is my Knowriel.com vision to help Filipinos in doing honest and smart business. Join me on this campaign on bringing positive changes to the beautiful country of the Filipinos - the Philippines.
