POSTCARDS | Not Your Usual Baler | Lakad Pilipinas

Fallen Pillars at Cemento Beach in Baler, Aurora

It’s my second time in Baler and I was trying to better the landscape photos that I took from the same place more than a year ago. Although I came prepared with the proper filters and microfiber cloth for sea spray this time, the light just wasn’t there when we checked out Aniao Islets; I failed to capture the images that I have in mind for the second time.

Redemption came a few hours later as we set foot at Cemento Beach. Surfer waves and craggy rock landscapes is what Baler is in my book, so I was surprised to find a causeway that has fallen in disrepair in the area. I haven’t seen this part of Baler in the worldwideweb and we were lucky enough to have the light bloom into godrays the moment we stepped on the beach. It isn’t the iconic Baler landscape that I was looking for, but it is good enough until my next Baler escapade.


THIS BALER WEEKEND TOUR WAS MADE POSSIBLE THRU PROJECT DORA
