It was a perfect cone and tourists, local and foreigners alike view it from afar. This time though, it spews red-hot lava and thousands of people were forced to flee  from the surrounding areas of the volcano.

It used to be like this.

When nature speaks, we should listen.

Thank you Rappler for this photo.

A friend just spent several days in Albay, Bicol Region and she sent me these lovely pictures. She knows that I am dreaming of going there too and see Inang Mayon. Inang Mayon is  Mayon Volcano to you dear readers. It’s widely renowned as the perfect cone because of  its almost symmetric conical shape. It is considered as the main landmark of Albay province. It rises to 2,460 meters above the Albay Gulf and is also the most active volcano in the Philippines.

Look at how the clouds hover above the volcano.  It seems like a lovely painting with the vast rice fields on the foreground.

 

I can imagine myself looking at the sunrise while taking a morning walk in this place, the lovely profusion of orange in the pale blue sky.

 

What would you give for a place like this, the peace and quiet  is so palpable.  Someday, I want to spend a few mornings here.

Oh gosh! A rainbow, another wonder from above. God is definitely showing His face and greeting the day, “good morning“.

And this is the “perfect cone”. Could you find something like this anywhere else?

I’d like to lose myself in that thick  fog and discover what’s inside that little hut.  I wish I were here communing with nature – at its best.

The play of light here is simply perfect. I feel like singing, “on a clear day, you can see forever”.

Just awesome!

Thanks a lot Lilet for these lovely pics. The next time you go there, I want to tag along and experience the same bliss and happiness you did while looking at Inang Mayon. What a perfect vacation for you!
