It was a nearly cloudless day in Sibaltan. We left the Tourism Office in El Nido town at half past eight in the morning, Lia and I, on the motorbike that Almer was driving and took nearly 2 hours to get there. Nearly two hours of a few kilometers of paved road, and then dusty, rough road the rest of the way all the way to Sibaltan.

We arrived to find ten lovely girls all dressed and made up for the shoot for Daragang Cuyunon (Miss Cuyunon) 2014.

As you know, I have never been into portraiture. I am a travel and landscape photographer. πŸ˜‰ So this was a new experience for me, and one that we did not really prepare for, in terms of lighting. We went there armed only with our cameras and nothing else.

The ladies are all lovely.
