This T'boli boy braves the rain to fish around the tilapia cages in Lake Sebu.

The lake and its surrounding rain forest is home to to the indigenous T'bolis. The T'bolis are known for their weaving skills and brassware production as well as fishing skills.

I saw him a few hours before (see this photo). The rain came all and he got is his green shirt to shield him from the cold rain.

hi Allan,

Happy New year 2007.

Great image here allan, nice blue and good POV. well done.


Nice one Allan! Great colours! Salamat!

No shark alert on your sea or lake???

Last time I at a warm sea they closed the bloody beach...

Not so here in these lobster infested cold waters of Nova Scotia, where it rains and rains also!!!

So long, eh! Jay

Nice job!
Good mood and cadre... I like blue(s)! ;)

Hello Allan,
It's nice to see you back with this wonderful post of rain, well composed with clarity, colour and mood in all
thanks for sharing

Wonderful atmosphere here Allan. Beautiful lines and texture, the semi-silhouettes are nice. Danilo

Wow! Great shot, pre! Very good composition!

Hi Allan,

Haha first thing that came to mind when I read the title- is me. (Not conceited!) But it just makes me think of everyday when I look out my window and decide I can still go for a run, although I usually know it'll rain.

Anyways! Great tone in the image, it's not even blue- it's almost a mix of gray/lilac and slate. I like the dark silhouettes, with touches of colour. The distant background looks fantastic, it almost looks like it's been painted in with water paint. Really nice shot (p.s. I love the clouds)

Good stuff Allan!

Hi Allen, Happy NEw Year.

Well composed and moody and I like a lot the economy of colour.

Hi Allan,
Very moving image. Very well seen and captured. I love the lighting across the shot, and the bluey hue. Great work, well done and TFS,

Hi Allan,

You have a wonderful set of colors in your photo. I like the colors you have in the background specially the mountains, sky and the fish pond. I think it would make a wonderful photo if you crop the mountains, sky and fish pond along with the house and make it a separate photo.

The title and the cold tones attracted me.
I like this blue atmosphere. Interesting composition well balanced.
