Sometimes, I forget when the night ends and a new day begins

on the way to Kinabalu HQ

on the way to Kinabalu HQ


I took this shot on the day of my birthday—the first day of our climb! It was supposed to be a tw0-hour drive from KK to Kinabalu HQ, but Rahim made to our destination at least 30 mins less. We passed by the Tamparuli -Kundasang Road all to way to the headquarters and the view was splendid.

I love the first photo. It's really really beautiful - the darkness of it all blends in w/the speck of ray and the blue sky.

I understand how you feel about the mysterious transition of night to dawn. It not really easy to tell when night ends especially without looking at the time.

@dong:
yep. maaga pa din kase so bukod sa smooth ang traffic from the city to Kundasang ma-eenjoy talaga ang view. pati pagbabago ng altitude mararamdaman mo din. parang Manila to LB lang ang distance.

@rey:
you're right. it was cold that morning. and it has gotten colder as we changed altitude going to the mountain.

@kyels:
thanks, love it too. it was taken from the window of the van and our driver was really going fast so i had to really position myself wisely.

@redge:
you're right and imagine how's life in the province where time doesn't matter much (or at least that's my impression). either it's so slow or i wasn't minding the ticking of the clock at all. people get by through various activities and the position of the sun.

Hey, many happy returns, I didn't realize your birthday had come and gone. Been thinking about the title of this post. I am currently in a phase where I make little difference between day and night. I go to sleep in the course of the night and I wake up again in the night. That is what you get when you limit your quota of sleep to about 4 hours. Love both the photos in the post. They are so very different. The sense of motion looking out of the car really adds value to the shot!
