Runaway Photo: Exquisite Sunset in the Philippines

What’s up with this beautiful sunset in island countries?

 

Sunset has been exquisite in the Philippines, almost every evening ever since I got here. In Panay, Guimaras, Negros and Malapascua; the sunset continuously surprised me over last two weeks. The last place I saw a series of great sunset was Borneo, Malaysia. Is this an island thing? The surrounding water and climate makes this exquisite scene? The complex combination of the colours doesn’t look very to me, who grew up in a city. Orange, pink, purple, blue, yellow and the ones in between… they are outstanding.

Even though the time of sunset is the toughest time for me to go outside (if you often be a venerable victim of mosquitos, you know what I’m saying), I enjoyed this special time. I got painful stretches and mosquito bites all over the body (and the ones in beach are strong!), I think it was worth the trouble.

Here are a few photos of exquisite sunset I’ve seen for last two weeks.

    Beautiful! I don’t have a fat bank account but always make sure to spend to go somewhere where there’s a pretty sunset waiting for me. 🙂

    Sunset is very amazing view specially in beach. Thanks for sharing beautiful photos of sunset in the Philippines.

    Siquijor has got one of the most beautiful sunsets in the Philippines. During sunsets, the horizon turns into red. Maybe that’s why they call it the Island of Fire. Siquijor is a mystical island because of the mystic traditions the island is associated with. You should visit Siquijor if you like spectacular sunsets on the beach.
