Photographer's Note

This is the MacArthur Landing Memorial Park in Palo, Leyte, Philippines. This is a memorial to the landing of General Douglas MacArthur and his men at Red Beach. The memorial was erected as a tribute of the fulfilment of his promise that he will return to the Philippines after Japanese occupation during World War II. These are larger-than life bronze statues standing in a man-made pool in the shore of the Red Beach, the exact spot where Gen. MacArthur landed.

Behind the statues is the Leyte Gulf, of which the powerful wind and the storm surge brought by typhoon Haiyan toppled one of the statues when Central Visayas Region was hit by this destructive typhoon on November 8, 2013.

Adding this photo in my gallery is like reminiscing how beautiful the province was before the typhoon.
