Photography: Highway Views to Morong, Bataan

 Tail of Summer, April 26 2014

Saplings of gmelina scorched by extreme dry and hot summer 
Patches of mahogany, mango and madre de cacao
 make a hillside green.
 Eucalyptus trees stressed by dry and hot air current 
stirred by passing vehicles.  

Bald hills, aftermath of cutting down of trees and swiden 
(kaingin) farming. River bed at left is practically dry. 
Row of native houses patterned after the nipa hut. 
The fields  wait for the coming of rain.
 A green valley - palagad rice crop with the aid of 
pump irrigation.  
 Two opposite views:  newly planted and harvested rice
 fields.  At the background is the Zambales mountain.  
New subdivision lends an urban ambiance to motorists 
driving towards Subic, a former US Naval Base.
