#11 Afterglow Reflections

Last December 16th, I posted a picture of a rare moon rise and mentioned that a firey dusk was taking place simultaneously in the west. ( Well for those who asked to see it, today's photograph is what we saw.

It was in baranggay Bantay just outside the town of Vigan Ilocos Sur. We had spotted an unusual vantage point earlier in the day and were determined to make our way there. It was unusual because it was in the middle of the town's cemetery on the night of the full moon. I'm not the superstitious type, but when an opportunity like this presents itself I try not to ask too many questions. Enjoy.


  1. What a great opportunity...I'm glad you took it...

    Now, I am enjoying your pictures in the comfort of my home...

    Thank you for taking the trip that most of us couldn't...

  2. Bantay is a town, separate from Vigan. Also, Vigan is a city, not a town. It IS possible that there is a barangay called Bantay in Vigan, and that I have never heard of it.

  3. Hi Carambola Manila, yes you are absolutely correct. The photograph was taken in the town of Bantay near the city of Vigan. Thanks helping me with geography! Bobby

  4. ...and the city of Vigan is in Ilocos Sur... thanks. Bobby

  5. well done, awesome shot indeed
