#232 Golden Lining

A silver lining holds a promise of hope. But what about a golden one?

We were on Apulit Island in eastern Palawan, and on our first attempt at dusk, we got lucky. I expected more color and light beneath the clouds, but an unmistakeable golden lining appeared instead. Now I don't really know what that means relative to a silver one, but one thing I do know is that no two dusks look the same. Each one is different. And until you see it, you never know what you'll get. Maybe that's why it's so addicting to stalk them all. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Why doesn't your dusk pictures look like this? Well I had a little help from a special filter called a graduated neutral density filter. It's like sunglasses but it only covers the brighter part of your picture, which is almost always the sky. It darkens the sky to match the darker elements in the foreground. It's a godsend at twilight. Do you need one? Not really... but you want one!)
