It's pronounced as Banga-an. Taken from a precarious dirt road carved into the cliffside, after sunset. I was amazed at the shadow detail available to a digital camera. My old film camera would not have stood any chance of recording such intricate detail in low light conditions. Banaue is the nearest large town.

Hello Chris,
Looks like space is precious at that location. A congested village surrounded by rice fields is looking interesting. Fine details and excellent luminosity. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Hi Chris
great PoV of the village and rice fields, not much room for expansion down there

Hi, Chris. A lovely POV of the rice terraces well captured . The designs made by the terraces and the greenery and water looks good in this wonderful composition with clarity and color. The small village clusters are the rice paddies farmers I presume.Cheers.
