Doljo Point, Panglao Island, Philippines
I always find it a bit of a mental battle getting up for sunrise shoots….especially when I’m on holiday. Good job I had arranged for a local lad to to pick me up at 4:30am and take me to this spot on the back of his motorcycle so I couldn’t just roll over and flag it.
As I was taking this shot a local villager came over and explained that they had planted 6000 of these mangrove trees as part of a government assistance program to help prevent further erosion of the Point and to preserve the fish supply they rely on.
It was certainly one of the most unique scenes I’ve photographed.
