Dawn breaks over Taal Lake.
In the distance is Taal Volcano, still active, and spews lava once every ten years or so. The volcano is an island within a lake, within an island. I wrote of my experience going to the crater of Taal volcano in an earlier post.
But the lake itself is worth appreciating.
It supports the livelihood of communities around it, and fishermen get up early before dawn to catch fish.
Twilight comes, and Taal Lake reflects the dying half-light of the sky.
It’s time to rest and hope the volcano stays asleep.
