#51 The Hundred Islands

Haven't you had enough sunrises?.... I've often been asked...

We were on the shores of Alaminos in Pangasinan, waiting to capture the sunrise over the Hundred Islands National Park. Truth be told, no two sunrises look exactly the same. Cloud type, density, and formation are largely random, depending on the weather and the wind. The intensity and breadth of dawn colors can vary widely too, depending on the clarity of the sky, the moisture in the air, and even the season of the year. And the foregrounds that we love to anchor our shots with? It's always a thrill hunting them down, provided we've done our homework earlier.

I've been chasing the twilight hours for four years now this month, so its an anniversary of sorts. But it's been like an unquenchable thirst, a hunger hardly satiated. Truth be told, every sunrise for me is like Christmas-time: a reunion with an old friend who looks slightly different since the last time we met. Who can get enough of their friends? Enjoy.

  1. i'll never have enough sunrises and sunsets:) they're my favorite time of the day to take photos and yours got me wishing i've done more when we were in Alaminos last year. did you go island hopping? the place is really beautiful and it's worth a revisit:)

  2. Hi Marites, yes we island-hopped spent the night on one of the islands, in a tent pitched right on the beach, driven to zzz's by whispering waves and the titter-tatter of raindrops around us . Worth a re-visit. Best regards, Bobby
