#23 Sunrise Hundred Islands

How to photograph the fire-y colors of dawn? You need a good alarm clock!

On the Ligayen gulf, off the coast of Alaminos City in Pangasinan, is the Hundred Islands Nature Park, a group of 123 islands cloistered together in an area covering 1,500 hectares. To silhouette them during the most colorful part of dawn, you literally need to be up before the sun. You see, the colors of dawn is the effect of the sun lighting up the underside of clouds, and the most brilliant colors occur only very briefly while the sun is still below the horizon. So if you expect sunrise at 530am, you better be standing where you need to be by 430am. And that's why you need a good alarm clock! Enjoy.
