When I read the notification in my inbox for this week’s photo challenge, I was so happy to know about the subject. Being a mountain climber for two years, I thought it would be easy for me to pick among the multitude of photos I have gathered since I started visiting the mountains. Until, I was drafting this post. I realized it doesn’t go that way. I mean the supposed easy thing I was talking about earlier wasn’t, at all, easy. The selection is actually a lot harder when there’s plenty of choices so I must say that I had a hard time picking my entry for this week’s challenge. To be honest, what I chose to post tonight was my least among the choices considering that I really wanted a subject coming from the mountains I and my hiking buddies conquered, supposedly.
The mountain on the photo is one of the mountains that I am yet to climb and it was taken at the most beautiful cove in the world, Nagasasa Cove (Pundaquit, Zambales) when I joined this fund raising project of PVI’s Island Adventure For A Cause. I got the chance to experience setting foot in the country I wish to visit, New Zealand, because of the said Island Adventure. I know that sounds somewhat funny but that’s how I genuinely felt when I was savoring the breathtaking views of the place on that very day (21 March 2010). That justifies the decision to pick a picture of a mountain from island hopping,and not from mountain climbing.
