Peaceful { Weekly Photo Challenge }

A picture of my niece atop the grassland summit of Mt. Pulag in Benguet, Philippines at daybreak. The white area you see below are clouds with a tinge of orange on the horizon where the sun is just starting to peek. This is a breathtaking view of what we call “the sea of cloud phenomenon”.

One of the most beautiful mountains in my country, it is Luzon’s highest peak at 2,922 meters above sea level. Mt. Pulag is favorite destination for trekkers and anyone who loves the outdoors.

  11. Breathtaking indeed. It’s like having your soul commune with the heavens and the world stood still…still enough to hear your heart beat and your heart’s inner longings. Longings of peace that will help us overcomes all odds. Beautiful!

    • We all need our ‘peace space’ as I call it. It’s a time to tune in to our inner being and hear our heart speak. We tend to be overwhelmed with the noises of our daily grind that it deafens the true voice within.
