with summer upon us, i am reminded of a trip back in 2008 to el nido in the philippines. located in the northernmost tip of palawan, which is about 420 km southwest of manila, it takes a plane, jeepney and boat ride to get to el nido resorts.
excursions to a secret beach, island hopping, kayaking in lagoons, snorkeling and a morning hike made it one of the most memorable trips i have ever taken. it was also the trip where i took one of my favorite photos (above). sometimes the lighting and composition just fall into place.
