Just when you thought you've seen them all, the unexpected happens.
We were on Matukad Island in Caramoan, enjoying the surf and the sand, until the day came to an end, as they always do. I had been photographing the island with several concepts in my mind, mostly a permutation of boats and beach lovers set against an emerald sea. I thought I'd captured it all when a shaft of light suddenly appeared across the water. The setting sun, now low on the horizon, cast its last ray of light through a narrow corridor formed by neighboring islands. Photography is much about chance and luck after all, but you have to pay attention. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: Does it make sense that a shaft of sunlight is as bright as day? To accurately capture the mood of what you saw, you need to expose that shaft of light by what it really is, even if it means everything else around it goes into the shadows.)
