Even when dawn disappoints, all is not lost.
On Nagarao Island just past the main island of Guimaras, we woke up to a blue dawn. We see this often during the rainy season, when the clouds are just too thick around the horizon at sunrise. The sun tries to punch through, but today the night is more than its match, leaving everything around us a gloomy blue. Have we been defeated? Nah. At least not in the bigger scheme of things. We will make such a trip again, and when we do, we will wake-up at 4:30am again to stalk the next sunrise. Who knows? Luck can change. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: My camera was mounted on a tripod, pointed in the direction of where I thought the sun could break through. And thanks to a friend who spotted this passing pump boat my composition came together.)
