Deep Blue Sky

Whenever we are outdoors, I love to catch everything I can on my camera. I always admire the beauty of nature…insects at work, birds soaring high, colorful flowers, open fields, big open skies, etc. This is my latest catch…deep blue sky with soft cotton-like clouds.

Stunning and beautiful, is it not?

The nature is just amazing. I hope everyone will do their share to save them.

The Fort Santiago Gate

The main entrance of Fort Santiago , towering 40 feet (12 meters) high.

Fort Santiago (Fuerza de Santiago) is a 16th century military defense structure, stands witness to the valor and heroism of the Filipino through the centuries and is best known for the imprisonment of Dr. Jose Rizal. It is part of the structures of the walled city of Intramuros, in Manila, Philippines.

The first fort was made out of log structures and earth. Most of it was destroyed in the Spanish-Chinese War of (1574-1575). In 1589 the fort was constructed by hard stone and finished in 1592. It became the main fort for travels and spice trade to the Americas and Europe for 333 years.

The Road Less Traveled

This reminds me of the book I have read “The Road Less Traveled” by M. Scott Peck. As you can see in the picture there is nothing moving there, not even a vehicle nor a critter. Thank God for the beautiful sky that gives life to this lonely place.
