My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

makati: ayala enchanting lights and sound show 2012

Ayala Lights 2

Its the holiday season again and the lights and sound show in Ayala Triangle is back (in its 4th year now), this time re-branded as the "Ayala Enchanting Lights and Sound Show". (Last year it was called the Ayala Symphony of Lights)

The Ayala Triangle is all decked out in beautiful light decorations, a work of art by award winning lighting designer Voltaire de Jesus. Just like last year, it was a joy to watch (but a pain to shoot, it really suited for videos). This year's music is from composers from Liquid Post: Mikey Arnistoso and Jass Nicholas.

This year the light design is highlighted by glowing orbs (last year is was stars). These orbs, together with small lights that seem to rain down from the sky, "dances" to the tune of different popular Christmas songs, beautifully arranged if I may add.

Another good change is that this year's show runs every 30 minutes (from 6PM - 9PM)  instead of every hour.

Don't go just yet after you've seen a show, because there are actually 2 sets! The other one features lasers and artificial smoke.

I think the light design of last year was more colorful and dynamic (probably influenced by the choice of music as well),  but I love the music selection this year.

Its a great place to hang out with family and friends and enjoy the sights and sound. You can watch the show over and over again since its free.

Update 2012/12/8:

I went back there a couple more times with several friends. Here are some of my favorite images:
