Anilao Postcards: Of Seascapes... Of Sunsets... 3

8 comments
The seascape view in front of my eyes starts to transform when the sun's reflections touches everything into golden hue. And the shadows of the running bancas, mountains and islands of Tingloy and Sombrero complemented this gorgeous scene of the moment. The clouds were starting to clear the horizon. The sun turns bolder and bigger as it starts to set down. And it was the start of the most beautiful moment of the day in Anilao - the Anilao Sunset. 

Me and my travel mates on this Anilao day-off trip were still in the middle of chats and eating session when the sunset starts to show up. We were just tired from a whole noon of island hopping to nearby islands, coves and beaches of Anilao. We were tire but we enjoy the exploring the seascapes of Anilao.

The most beautiful moment of the day in Anilao...
The sunset just motivated me to practice my skills in capturing photos. One of my colleagues also starts to join and coach me in focusing the subject and using the lens since of my our workmates brought a SLR camera. Then the chats of my other travel mates did not just end. It was like a good opportunity to share stories, bond together and enjoy the beauty of Anilao in front of us.

I can't get enough of the beautiful scenery in front of my eyes! I think clicked numerous times on my camera just to get perfect shots of Anilao Sunset. I can count how many shots! But I was satisfied whatever photo I've captured since it the whole moment was stunning, breathtaking and marvelous.

Anilao Sunset.
Gorgeous!
I still took shots of the view while having a good conversation with a few of my friends. The sky and sea is bath in golden yellow color. It was a gorgeous sunset and seascape scenery that I felt I become partially deaf for a moment to my colleagues share of stories and chats because of its magnificent beauty. I’m always drawn to sunsets and they are really best viewed by the sea.

Everything is reflected in golden sunshine.
After sunset... still admirable beauty of nature.
As the sun sets down and I also sat to watch it gone by. I reflect.  It was the most beautiful moment of the day in Anilao. Three words - stunning, breathtaking and marvelous. I'm truly astonished to this moment of the day by the beach! It was an unforgettable seascape and admirable beauty of nature. Anilao Sunset made my day-off trip in Mabini, Batangas truly memorable!

A few more reflections after the sunset ends... This is one day-off that I won’t forget! Not only I did have a quick vacation on my day-off to distress and relax and explore the beauty of Anilao but I got to spend this “best day-off” with my best buddies and friends at work. Day-offs should be like this - stress-free, spend on a wonderful place, good share of stories, endless fun and great people to share this day-off with – that what makes the best day-off ever!

The end.

Pass four in the afternoon. The afternoon sun starts to low down yet its heat still radiates a bearable warm likened to a summer afternoon sun rays.  Though some of the clouds starts to cover up in the sky, the sun is clearly setting the scene by the vast seascape of Anilao. The sun says reflects a beautiful wash of light over the sea. The reflection of sun light creates a dramatic seascape that I only witnessed in Anilao.

I was carried away by the view of the beach front. I didn't noticed that my colleagues were keep on calling me to eat a late launch mixed early dinner. Though I still clicking on to take photographs, I gave in to their call to eat as I'm already hungry too like them. My travel mates slash work mates just came from a whole noon of island hopping around the seas of Anilao. We finished early noon so we failed to eat lunch but despite of it we still enjoyed the island hopping in Anilao to the fullest! The beauty of nature that we discover in the coves, beaches and islands of Anilao is something that me and friends will never forget.

Anilao's golden moment!
After satisfying my hunger, I return to clicking photographs again. It was then I realized that the setting of the sun is starting to change the color of the seascape into a golden sepia tone.

The sepia tone - experimenting using my point and shoot Samsung camera.
Dramatic Anilao Seascape.
Oh the sun!
The golden tone with a gorgeous sky and sun with the shadow of the islands and a mountain on the background made me feel astonish and marvel at the beach front scene of the rest house that we are staying. And when a banca passes through over the beautiful sunlight reflected sea, it made the seascape a stunning scene to behold.

Reflection of light.
Anilao Seascape like no other!
Golden moment - Bella! Bella! Bella!
I marvel at these beautiful seascapes of Anilao. They were worthy of postcards photos that we see in bookstores and souvenir shops. Photos that are good reminder how beautifully blessed our country with beauty of nature.

My friends at work on these trip were also enjoying these marvelous Anilao seascapes. And it was a pretty good moment to have chats with them - knowing them more deeply with their stories over a beautiful scenery in front of us. We even practiced how to take good shots of scene photographs. But few hours later, the seascapes in front of us starts to transform. It was time for the most beautiful moment of the day in Anilao to happen.

To be continue...
