Who would have thought that a destructive volcanic eruption in 1991 would turn out to be a thing of beauty decades after? Hard to picture that this breathtaking view (I took the photo in January 2012) was once this desolate scene:
I was around 7 years old and living in Manila when the eruption happened. I remember the sky going dark and the ash starting to fall. Everything ended up being blanketed in grey ash.
