I feel like howling

A full moon over the Hotel Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila. Sofitel is located in the same complex as the Cultural Center of the Philippines and overlooks Manila Bay and its beautiful sunsets. Its flagship restaurant is Spiral, famous in the metro for its huge buffet spread. Its bar, 7Pecados by the Bay, I've featured quite a few times already.

Pretty neat perspective, is this how you view the moon after a few rounds of margarita from 7 Pecados?
Just kidding.

Wonderful capture on the full moon. The lighting on the building is a nice compliment.

Being born in a full moon night this photography was for sure of interest. Seems also as if there were some other windows filled with light, late that night.
Wishing you all the best for this Friday.

A wonderful night shot, Hilda! I like the angle and it's got some really cool pieces to it - the moon, of course, but also the sign which could be lit by the moon, and the palm trees!

Well, that composition makes this shot just super and to capture that moon, divine. That Sofitel resembles a big block of cheese in the yellow glow of the moon!

Beautiful shot of both the building and the moon! :)

If a have a drink - this is how I see the buildings - falling back and farward :) Just kidding - great angle! And the light feels very warm.

Xyke Ryan said...

Whew, this is great. I've been to Sofitel once but I didnt even imagine that in this shot this could stand out much better..

Don and Krise said...

Great night shot Hilda. And since the weekend's here why not a trip to 7Pecados? Do you really need a reason though?

Ebie said...

And the moon is shinning bright giving the golden glow on Sofitel!

I love the title too!

Olivier said...

surprenante architecture pour un hôtel, très austère. J'aime l'angle de la photo

Steffi said...

Cool photo ;))!

Hello dear Hilda,
Beautiful and elegant Hotel,no doubts!
To do a great picture of the "moon"as you did, is a kind of obsession for my mommy, time goes on and she always has this feeling to take this picture...How knows, someday, but I think the problem is in fact, her camera!It's not a good one! :) She needs to improve it!
AHhh what a fabulous hint of that site, thanks so much, I'm so happy about the Egyptian limestone cat statue, it's fascinating! :)
Thanks for thinking about me!
purrs, love and a blessed weekend
Luna

Yes, but don't do it, Hilda! We don't want anyone to lock yo up in a padded room. ;-) Lovely shot.

traveller said...

Sooo...did you end up howling? I love the perspective...just don't like that "Sofitel" sign over there.
