Photographer's Note

I took this shot in patapat bridge that is located at the top of the philippines, border of ilocos norte and cagayan province. On that bridge you will see how beautiful the south china sea is.

The South China Sea encompasses a portion of the Pacific Ocean stretching roughly from Singapore
and the Strait of Malacca in the southwest, to the Strait of Taiwan (between Taiwan and China) in the
northeast. The area includes more than 200 small islands, rocks, and reefs, with the majority located in the Paracel and Spratly Island chains. Many of these islands are partially submerged islets, rocks, and reefs unsuitable for habitation and are little more than shipping hazards, with the total land area of the Spratly Islands encompassing less than 3 square miles. The islands are important for strategic and political reasons, however, as claims of ownership are used to bolster claims to the surrounding sea and its resources. The Gulf of Thailand borders the South China Sea, and though technically not part of
it, disputes surround ownership of the Gulf and its resources as well.
