Photographer's Note

This is the church bell of Historic Miagao Church, or Church of Santo Tomas de Villanueva, in Iloilo, Philippines. It was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1972. The UNESCO Group is concerned with the world cultural and natural heritage. This church was completed in 1797. It was badly damaged by an earthquake in 1948 but was restored in 1960. Miagao Church is one of 4 Baroque Churches in the Philippines. I climbed up the bell tower to take a look at the old bell. It was huge and is till being used. There was this light that falls down the side of the bell from a small opening at the top. It forms a beautiful light shape on the bell. I decided to take a picture. The altar of this church may be seen here
