[SkyWatch] Batangas Beach Sunset

After a predominantly gray day in Quezon province two weekends ago, we drove back towards home and stopped at Laiya Beach in the province of Batangas. The skies opened up for us. 

We checked into a small resort on what had developed into an entire strip of resorts since we last were there five years ago. Then I went for a walk along the beach with my camera just in time to catch the changing colors of the sky as the sun set.

One of my favorite pastimes is to walk the beach at sunrise or sunset and take photos of the sun doing its thing...every day is different. Heck, every few seconds is different.

Looks like a very beautiful, laid-back kind of place. You've put me in a calm, peaceful frame of mind...ah...good night!

And we wish you and yours a wonderful holiday celebration - however you do it! :-)

You really find some fine images to contribute to Sky Watch, Francisca!

Andrea said...

Beautiful skywatch Francisca. You know what, even if i am from Batangas i have not been to Laiya nor Lobo or even the beautiful beaches around it. I am even more familiar with the resorts in the Visayas or Mindanao, haha! That's why last Christmas i backride in a motorcycle to see the coast around Mabini. You should see my last skywatch post, viewed from our backyard. I know you will like them!
