I am so busy, I forgot that there was a road trip I did with some friends last July; out of that, I have wonderful photos I only got to see last night.
These photos were taken from Bataraza, a mining town in Palawan. I thought there’s nothing I’d be able to document that would turn out beautiful because of the character of the place as a mining town. But I was wrong. The place has its own beauty.
The bridge helps transport ores to barges.
A Philippine Navy boat off the shores of Bataraza. This keeps the border secured between the Philippines and Malaysia against illegal activities, such as human trafficking, drug trafficking, smuggling and illegal logging.
The sun sets beautifully over the mine tailing pond of Rio Tuba Nickel Mining Corporation. The tailing pond is where the mining company’s left over materials flow after the process of separating valuable fractions from uneconomic fractions of ore.
