Again, thank you Mr. Gemina for this wonderful photograph. Hope to get a good camera myself in the near future, I am still not yet ready for a DSLR, just something to level up from my good old Sony Cybershot W220 Point and Shoot Compact Camera which was used to take my current blog banner.
This is a shot somewhere in Talakag, Bukidnon Province. A rubber plantation that we just could not control ourselves from stopping over and dropping off, even if its not part of our itinerary. The time of the day just made the view so beautiful. Though the grasses are tall and rubber plantations are known habitats of cobras and other venomous snakes in that geographic region, it is just so beautiful, we could not stop ourselves from that risk.
Rubber tapping is considered an environmentally sustainable industry. There is constant demand for rubber in bigger industries such as shipbuilding, aviation, manufacturing, etc. but maintaining a rubber plantation have minimal impacts to biodiversity loss. This place is surely a beauty knowing its contribution to sustainability.
With the beauty of a sustainable industry presenting itself unto me, it did cross my mind to change my banner. But unlike the beautiful background, it seems I look better with my back turned, I guess I will stick with the SF6 insulated circuit breakers, back turned with a hard hat, which is my usual outfit. Wearing a pink shirt was too much of a contrast and I look as if I was only photoshopped as if I did not really came across that place.
