Walking is one of the things I do to free my mind from the things that trouble me or whenever I feel the need to unwind, and scoop for inspiration. Often, I bring my phone or sometimes a camera in case I may find something interesting to shoot.
I am not a photographer, maybe a shutterbug for landscapes, architecture, installments, artworks, notes or anything that could resemble a still life feel – capture a moment that could paint a thousand words.
Zambales is one of those places that boast scenic places in the Philippines. Other than its beaches, the province is home to rich classic architecture and history, green countryside, and wonderful people – not to mention, good food.
Cabangan, one of the towns in Zambales, has that warm, cozy ambiance. Its laid back, rural feel charms both local and foreign tourists. Adding to its appeal are the beaches, and other sceneries that are worth every shot.
Take, for example, the Tangway River. Walking along the river’s bank is exhilarating. Biking is another option, especially during the morning.
As usual, I preferred to walk and I brought the camera with me and took some shots, which I gradually watermarked and added some with quotations about journey.
The sun peeking on the mountains’ slopes and the fog fading in the distance can make you appreciate the natural beauty of this place. In addition, you may come across some people heading to the beach, some fishermen and farmers as well as people taking a dip in the river, which is clean and clear enough you can see the bottom and the fishes.
Walking is a good exercise, but walking in a place like this is not only for your physical health. It is refreshing, calming and every bit inspiring.
