One of my favorite photographs during my vacation last July 2013. This photograph was taken at Isla Jardin, Gumasa, Sarangani Province. Gumasa is one of the famous beaches in Southern Mindanao, Philippines because of its fine white sand beaches. It was my first time to visit the place. There one of the locals said that I shouldn’t miss the sunset. And he was indeed right. I was mesmerized and couldn’t stop clicking the shutter button to capture as many photograph as I could. I told to myself I should visit this place again. One of the most memorable moments during my vacation.
