Escaping Summer Heat

We’re at the heart of summer in the Philippines, and with temperatures averaging 39 degrees C a day (hotter than freakin body temperature!), it’s no surprise my mind is getting slowly fried. All I’m consumed with now is thoughts of the ocean, or the cool mountains, or anywhere away from the searing city, longing for some kind of escape.

This here is Kiltepan Viewpoint, in Sagada, Mountain Province. It was taken one sunrise in May, some years ago. When I think “respite” my mind immediately wanders to this spot, with this view. I can pretend I’m walking through clouds, breathing in the frosty mountain air, the cold breeze caressing my face. And boy, will I pretend! Coz right now it’s all I have. *tears*

For more of my “escapist” photos (and a whole bunch of other works), head on to my newly minted portfolio. It’s in its baby stages, but it’s slowly and surely getting there. Follow me too, if you’re on the network. I’d love to see your work! :)
