Boracay Revisited

It has been a year already since we last strolled along the white sands of Boracay.  It was during this vacation that I realized that I could take some nice landscape pictures, well at least IMO 🙂 and that has inspired me to pursue this hobby seriously.

Here are some shots that I took from last year:

The Golden Hour

Ask any photographer what time would be the best time to take dramatic pictures and they would unanimously answer without hesitation — the Golden Hour.  I’m also not that familiar with this Golden Hour concept until last year during our trip to Boracay.  During that time, I began to appreciate what is so golden about those hours after the sun sets.

Here are some of my favorite shots:

And just a few months ago, during our trip to Tagaytay, I was able to take some Golden Hour shots from the People’s Park n the Sky:
