#197 Sweet Sunset

In the land of sugar, you'd be forgiven if you thought even the seawater here is sweet. But there's a reason why this sunset was pretty sweet for me...

We were on the coast in barrangay Balaring in Silay City awaiting the dusk. The truth is, glorious sunsets have eluded me all year long. When I'm at the right place to catch one,  the weather would refuse to cooperate. But when I pay it no heed, like when I'm driving home from work or simply looking up from my garden, the skies would fill with color and splendor. Sigh. That's part of it, of course, the ones that got away. Just as in life. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: The twilight season is upon us. From November to February, sunrises and sunsets can be extra magnificent. Whether its due to the earth's longer distance from the sun, or maybe because wet cold air dispersing more light, I don't really know. What I do know is that all twilight photographers should be out at this time, and at every chance they get.)
