Mount Mayon

Mayon Volcano as seen from the city of Ligao, Albay, just before the sun starts to show from behind.

Renowned for its (almost) perfectly conical shape, Mount Mayon is Bicol Region's most iconic landmark. Also pictured is Kawakawa Hill.

Streams of Busay Falls

Another name of the Busay Falls I heard is Pitong Sagurong. Pitong Sagurong translates to 'pitong alulod' in Filipino or ‘seven gutters’ in English and refers to the seven-tiered waterfalls. You will need ample time —and a local guide if you’re not from around, of course— to visit all seven.

Seven Waterfalls

Malilipot, a municipality in the province of Albay, hosts the seven-tiered waterfalls called Busay Falls. Naturally, one has to hike the mountain in order to get to the other falls. The first one is often teeming with swimmers especially on the height of summer.

I was told that Malilipot, a Bikol word, translates to ‘very cold’.

Field by the Cone

With the trees and other interesting elements, I thought I would have ample time to practice using the IR filter during the vacation but didn’t have much opportunity. (I had to sneak away from my family just to take these photos… and they had to wait for me, too! Hehe). Obtaining good focus is tricky with an attached IR filter, at least ime.
