manila bay: a series of fortunate events
When Manila Bay decides to put on a show, it does so with all the fanfare only Mother Nature is capable of doing.
After a tiring day tour at the nearby historic island of Corregidor, I decided to wait for the sunset by the bay. I had my gear with me anyway and sunset is just an hour or two away. It rained hard but stopped just as we were about to dock. The horizon has cleared up but there remained a good layer of clouds that's perfect for reflecting the rich colors of the sunset, not too thick to block the sun and not too thin to fizzle out before the sun hits the horizon.
The photos were taken just minutes apart from each one. Everywhere you look you can see cloud formations and colors changing by the minute. Its was one of the grandest light shows I've seen in Manila Bay.
I had to run to another location, hence the big time difference between the 6:03 and 6:11 photos :D
