You never forget your first cloud inversion
All I could see in the darkness of the woods in pre-dawn was the head torch of my pal bobbing about as she jogged up the track towards me. “Look at that!” She screamed excitedly. She was actually jumping as she ran so she could see over the bushes at the view. She was pointing over my shoulder to the sunrise she had clearly seen before I did. When I turned to see it, I knew exactly what she was so excited about.
We were making our way to Kiltepan, an amazing mountain top viewpoint in the mountainous region of Sagada in the north of Luzon, the largest island of the Philippines. The drive north from Manila had taken about 14 hours but, in that pre-dawn moment, was well worth the ride.
God looking down on the world
If you think about God looking down on the world, you might imagine something like this. Mountain tops bathed in the pink and orange of the newly rising sun poking through a carpet of clouds which completely covered the valley below.
I took the selfies
Sure, I took the selfies and posed for the photos like a hundred times on this trip. But not before the scene took my breath away, caught my heart and left me with a moment which will be with me forever.
