Rays and Morning Fog by Bennie Jay Guevarra on
A morning in Bukidnon

The above photo shows rays of sunshine filtering through the misty canopy of a park in Cawayanon, Bukidnon, Philippines. I snapped this picture not long after sunrise on March 3, 2010. These rays are in essence local crepuscular rays. Shadowed regions between the much brighter rays result when leaves and limbs block out the sunlight; whereas unblocked light is scattered by fog droplets, giving the “beam” effect. The canopy here is a mixture of mature Indian rubber trees, acacia trees and mahogany trees.

Should I wait for the Sun to rise or go before it has fully risen?

Yesterday ,at dawn ,I went biking alone to Sta. Elena. I stop at the a bridge to look around the surrounding and figure that the sun is about to shine. I went on biking, then suddenly the hind wheel got busted. I slow down. I stop, and try to digest what just happened. I was about 3 kilometers away from home, no money on my pocket and a bike with a busted tire to carry.

The sun is still about to rise as I walk with the shameful feeling every time I come across people from there. Thank goodness the sun hasn’t risen yet. Only a few people are at the streets as I walk by, slowly. I stopped at the bridge that I mentioned earlier . The sun is about to rise. Great!Read More »
