Among bigger cousins

I was trying to get a photo of the sunset across the breakwater that protects the Manila Yacht Club when these two guys in a little bangka (canoe) rowed past. Now I'm forever left wondering where they came from—the breakwater extends all the way to the shore on that end—and what they were doing.

AH! Now you have a mystery that may never be solved. But the boaters add to the already lovely photo! Happy Sky Watch!

Hope said...

A canoe, a boat is a very good place for watching the sky !

Beautiful sky and nice contrast of the canoe among the larger water craft!

Beautiful sunset! Love the back light on the bangka.

Great photo, with beautiful colours...
The sky is pretty, and "the shadow of the boat" is beautiful...

Hilda, I was awarded the BFF (blogging friends forever) Golden Card by Marie from Malta Daily Photo (click the banner on my blog). Now it's my turn to pass this award to other bloggers and I have chosen you.

Hilda, this is probably one of my favorites of all your photos; and that canoe passing through the frame is the maker of this photo ... Of course, the sky is fabulous. It reminds me of the wonderful Manila sunset I've seen with my own eyes.

Lovely golden colours, perfect for sky watch.

A nice shot, I like the light source coming from the side rather than straight on, it makes for a more interesting composition.

Mary Jo said...

Flirting?

This is really nice Hilda.

babooshka said...

That is just gorgeous.

The boat is a nice focus, but with or without the sun at Manila Bay is as always, awesome! Happy weekend!

It's really nice color and composition. It mist be really nice to see these type of sunset every day.

Wonderful shot.

Long time no see! (That's a chinglish greeting)
Hilda,
this is a beautiful image, if it weren't for the industrial clue on the background(I mean the big yatch), I could have mistakened this for our Westlake!

They look like they are paddling through liguid gold! Thanks for visiting my blog. To answer your question about the gazebo, it is along the trail that we hiked on. There are several of them with information posted on billboards inside. Also, if you go back to the comments section on my blog someone who worked there answered your question in more detail. Happy Skywatching!
