The Rising

“...This one made me gasp. It taps into that primal sun-god sense of awe. With the light beams you’ve got a pyramid that draws the eye up, but the sun’s so bright you have to bow your head. Your gaze is held down there in the fog blanket with the little houses that are almost an afterthought.”

An aerial photo of the surrounding towns and plains of Mt Balungao during sunrise in the Philippines.

One of my favorites from my last visit to my hometown in the Philippines. I lived there for about 20 plus years of my life but I have never seen the sun rising magnificently over that mountain.

This photo got featured and won first place in Rubber Monkey's 2021 "World Photography Day" Competition.

The collector will also receive a signed and numbered (1/1) physical print with a Certificate of Authenticity.
