We arrived in the city of Tabuk in Kalinga late in the afternoon. Although we were exhausted from the trip we quickly changed into "full battle gear". The sun was about to set and we knew the light was going to be just wonderful. Photographing the setting sun is always an option, but just as it lights up the sky on its way down, it also lights up the rest of the land. Hurling its final rays across the landscape, where a lone farmer is planting rice in an open field, the color of the light can be absolutely golden. Ordinary colors can pop and sizzle like you've never seen them before!
(Pixel-peepers: Do you see all six dragonflies hovering over our lone farmer? I increased the size of this week's postcard by 20%, to 1,280 pixels on the long side. If you have a large high resolution monitor you'll see much MORE detail. Stare into the photograph long enough and you'll be transported into the scene, as if standing beside us as we raced to capture the fading light! T
