#95 Sunset in Seloton

And where did you say you took that picture? Here. Where? Right here. Here? Where here?

We were on the northern banks of Lake Seloton in the town of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato. Lake Seloton is a sunrise lake, the best place for dawn photography in this lake town. Little did we realize the sun sets here too. We were pleasantly surprised as the dusk painted the sky, and the surrounding lake, a fire-y orange. Even the resort owner couldn't recall seeing the sky quite like this. Not on his lake. Beginner's luck? We can live with that. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: At twilight, when the sun begins to turn the sky into a palette of light, one of your best friends are reflections, specially when you are beside a big body of very still water. Remember to shoot low and close to the ground, that can increase the apparent size of the reflections. And don't forget to take your polarizer off because you don't want to filter them out!)

For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country.
