Random photographs taken of bits and parts of our Tao Safari around the Calamian Islands, west of Coron, in Palawan, Philippines.
Photographs taken during our 1-hour trek around the tiny Pass Island perimeter, done after breakfast the morning after spending the night sleeping on its beach.
It was a long beautiful stretch of sea, meeting sand, meeting rocky nooks and crannies.
Pass Island is a small dot amidst the Calamian Islands, west of Coron, in Nothern Palawan, Philippines.

Photographs taken near, to, from, and at both Kayangan Lake and Barracuda Lake, situated shortly off the Northern coasts of Coron Island, part of the Calamian Islands in Northern Palawan, Philippines.
Kayangan Lake is supposedly the cleanest lake in the Philippines. With its crystal clear waters, one can explore the barren, jagged, rocky alien planet scape under its calm surface… But not before an uphill-downhill hike on a manicured path with large stone steps. A cave and look-out point serve as a rest stop, right at the pinnacle.
Barracuda Lake is past a gateway of limestone. Makeshift bridges of bamboo and wood bring you from the boat, through hazardous and jagged valleys of stone, to the lake through a crack. Brackish water makes it a favorite among divers for the haloclines down its dark depths.

Calcite deposits, limestone, sea marble, and crevices… Taken at Cudugnon Cave in El Nido Bay, Palawan, Philippines.
Cudugnon Cave is famous for being a Neolithic burial ground and a WWII hiding place. All treasures, corpses, and artifacts have been excavated and moved to city museums.
Since childhood, geology has always been one of my obsessions.
