Taken from a precipitous vantage point high above the river & rice terraces at right. A tourist resort run by a Swiss national caters to travellers wishing to stay overnight & trek around this area of Banaue. The meandering 's' shape of the road caught my eye here. This is the Hapao / Hungduan area of Banaue.
Banaue is on Luzon Island, about 350 km north of Manila.

Bonour mon cher ami,
je suis content de te retrouver avec une bien longue absence, l'occasion de retrouver des photos d'Asie, dans ton style tout particulier. Ici, une vue aérienne impressionnante où les verts dominent.

that's a great POVyou found there.
Excellent view over the hammond on the river and the road meandering through it.

The high vantage point gets the most out of the graphical lines offered by the snaking roadway. The house are nicely scattered about the frame to produce a pleasingly balanced composition. An agreeable range of verdant tones relieved by the red roofs.

The S shape road is an asset to the composition. The distannce between the bridge and the top of the road is giving depth to the scenery. There is a good contrast between the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.
