I had just witnessed a magnificent dawn unfold on Valugan beach in Batanes. Completely awed by the experience, what more can a twilight photographer ask for?
As I walked away, I looked back one last time to see a boat that was safe and dry from the raging sea beyond. The sight reminded me of a poster that once hung atop my desk during the years of my adolescence: "A boat in a harbor is safe, but that's not what boats are made for." Enough said. Let's go get 'em. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: I knelt real close, set my aperture to f/11, and used hyper-focal distance focusing. The effect is that both my foreground objects and the those at the horizon will be tack sharp. It's not rocket science so try it some time.)
