Manila Bay's famous sunset?

Not quite. In Metro Manila, the best place to see gorgeous sunsets is along Manila Bay. However, the Philippines is in the midst of its monsoon season so glorious, glowing, orange sunsets with a full view of the sun is still a couple of months away. But I love how the setting sun turned a gray, overcast sky into soothing pinks and lavenders.

Very soothing indeed. The Palm tree adds a lot to this photo.

Oh. My. That is a lovely look at a sky and that is a palm tree. It must be in or very close to paradise.

Hi Hilda,
I have answered your question about Navi Mumbai here
The city exists for over 30 years now and is well-developed and populated, though not as congested as Mumbai.
Mumbai's Sister City

Véritable théatre d'ombres chinoises.
A gorgeous shadow theater, I can see dogs and bears in front of the red sky.

Steven:
The bay walk is still there! And it's even better now that Lim got rid of all the food stalls. The view from the road is now unobstructed again, and the stroll much more peaceful. Well, as peaceful as a stroll along a busy highway can get anyway.

The coconut tree is a lovely addition to the already beautiful sky! (Im sure its coconut!!! -tama ba? lol).

didn't get much skywatching done yesterday, so I'm checking in late. Pink sky, palm tree, all I need is a fruit drink with a little paper umbrella decoration in the glass, and I'm set.
