Skywatch#22 Marlboro Country, Batanes

This place is called Marlboro Country by tourists who came to Batanes. But for the locals, this place is their "rakuh-a-payaman" or just "payaman", the communal pastureland.

Payaman is located at the town of Uyugan, Batanes. Overlooking the farm fields and the Pacific Ocean, it has spectacular views of the surrounding area particularly the lighthouse of Mahatao and Mt. Iraya.

So peaceful & great. If I am ever in need of therapy and they'll ask me to picture my 'happy place', it would look like something like this!

Beautiful. Seen tons of photos of Marlboro Country, seems to be very popular with local bloggers.

Is that a haze from the heat or is this taken on a foggy cool day?

@ewok1993: the haze was caused by the foggy cool day:)
