Looking At The Sky On Friday

I took this picture when my friend and I visited Bohol just recently. It was cloudy and gloomy just as well she took the shot before it rained. The Chocolate Hills is a rolling terrain of haycock hills — mounds of general shape which are conical and almost symmetrical. Estimated to be at least 1,268 individual mounds to about 1,776, these cone-shaped or dome-shaped hills are actually grass-covered limestone hills. The large and numerous perfect domes vary in sizes from 30 meters to 50 meters high with the largest being 120 meters in height. To view more pictures, just click the logo above.

The dark clouds are quite dramatic - but not moreso than the massive earthen hills. How unique!
