Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting

Since those who reached the top first had to wait for us. Because the anatomy of the ranges suffused with the morning silence  was too beautiful to ignore.


Trekking teaches us the beauty of waiting.

The silence of the rays caressing the body of the mountain reminds me of love.

Perhaps the gods are here playing unseen.

Mountains are women. Sexy. Curvaceous.

Mt. Pulag, Benguet, Philippines
