Taal Volcano is a complex volcano located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines.[1] It is the second most active volcano in the Philippines with 33 historical eruptions. All of these eruptions are concentrated on Volcano Island, an island near the middle of Taal Lake. The lake partially fills Taal Caldera, which was formed by prehistoric eruptions between 140,000 to 5,380 BP.[2] Viewed from Tagaytay Ridge, Taal Volcano and Lake presents one of the most picturesque and attractive views in the Philippines.[3] It is located about 50 km (31 mi) south of the capital of the country, the city of Manila.

  1. The scenic beauty is highlightened in colour and is a treat for the eyes, the B/W has got the class, looks artistic too, but u feel a bit depressed! And that’s the difference I always feel when you take a photo of the Mother Nature in B/W!

  2. I agree; the eye does not see in B&W and some things, IMO, aren’t appropriate for it. Like B:&W flowers, for example! To each his own, I guess. Br. Salim, is this a “blue hour” image?
