Tiger Traveller: The fourth set of finalists in our Boracay/Palawan photo contest

December 28, 2013 By: jessicazafra Category: Contest, Places, Traveling No Comments →

We’re giving away a round-trip Tigerair ticket to Kalibo, Aklan; Puerto Princesa, Palawan; or any Tigerair domestic destination in this month’s Tiger Traveller contest. To join, read this.

toribio el nido
Entry #27. Photographer: Abraham Toribio II. El Nido, Palawan, March 2009. Taken with a Canon PowerShot G10. “I always take pictures of sunsets wherever I go. I find the deep orange colors of the sky and the surrounding landscape breathtaking. I especially like this photo because it captures a fisherman walking towards his boat at the end of the day. It’s so casual and ordinary.”

tingga manoc-manoc
Entry # 28. Photographer: Frencel Tingga. Manoc-Manoc, Boracay, December 2011. Taken with a Nikon D3100. “Tulubhan, Monoc-Manoc of Boracay has a stunning view of Bulabog Beach, the rugged, windy side of the island and haven of wind and kite surfers. This is where I go whenever I want to avoid the crowded White Beach. The view here is equally beautiful and panoramic, and the strong sea breeze is invigorating.”

marianne_suba_bacuit_bay_at_night_el_nido
Entry #29. Photographer: Marianne Elize S. Suba. Bacuit Bay at night. Photo taken last August 2012 at El Nido, Palawan with a Canon EOS Kiss X3.

machado bacuit
Entry #30. Photographer: Ryan Machado. “Most island-hopping tours in El Nido end at 3 or 4 in the afternoon. Seeing the shore of Bacuit Bay lined with hotels and inns signals the end of the day’s tour, and in this case our El Nido 3-day getaway.” Taken in April 2013 with a Canon EOS 1000D.

galang morning
Entry #31. Photographer: April Galang. “My morning ritual in Boracay consists of getting strong coffee and calamansi muffins then eating them by the beach. This was the view that morning—calm sea, saturated sky, light not fully set in. I was only framing the lifeguard station and the kid walking then the bird decided it wanted to be in the picture.” Taken in Boracay, October 2011, with a Nikon D40.

caintic sand water
Entry #32. Photographer: Ruddi Chris Caintic. Taken on Banana Island in November, 2013 with a Nikon D90.

caintic banul
Entry #33. Photographer: Ruddi Chris Caintic. The Banul Island Totem taken at Banul Island, Coron, Palawan in November, 2013 with a Nikon D90.

bilog willy's rock
Entry #34. Photographer: Roselyn Bilog. Willy’s Rock from below. Taken in Boracay 2012 with an iPhone.

Tiger Traveller Entry - Sam Guison
Entry #36. Photographer: Ramzen Guison. “Traveled to Boracay alone to celebrate my 30 years of existence. I always wanted to go to this heavenly place by myself and it was by far one of the best travel decisions I have ever made.” Taken in September, 2013 with a Nikon D60.

Mateusz-Dolega-2012-2-el-nido
Entry #37. Photographer: Mateusz Dolega. Taken in El Nido, Palawan in December 2012.

clemencio

fontanos fishball
