ON THE ROAD | The Milkyway

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


It has always been one of my dreams to photograph the Milky Way. I have seen breathtaking photos of our galaxy in photography forums before and it never failed to amaze me. I’ve been trying on and off through the years to capture it but even just the task of locating it had always been hard enough. On my 12th day on the road, as I was boarding down a midnight bus in the town of Daanbantayan in the rural parts of Cebu, I finally spotted the Milky Way with my own naked eyes. Galaxy photo, checked!
