Photo – Philippine Sunset in Santa Rosa

Photo of the Day – Sunset in Santa Rosa Philippines

If you even had in mind a golden sunset, this is the one. Santa Rosa is in Laguna, about an hour south of Manila. This photo was taken from my hotel window at the El Cielito Hotel in August.

The Philippines is an amazing place. It’s a beautiful country that shows so many different facets of human existence. A short drive or walk will take you past grand monuments and shocking poverty.

The Filippino people that I’ve met are wonderful and I now have many friends there. I’ve been working in the Philippines for the past 16 months on a consulting assignment. I’ve really enjoyed most everything about the adventure with the exception of the long trips to get there.

The trips take a toll on the body. The time difference is 13 hours, so I’m flipping the clock when I go there and when I return. I’m in the middle of that right now, having returned home a few days ago. That’s why this post is late for the day, but not for the hours I’m keeping right now.

Photo Details: Olympus E-520, 40-150mm lens, 1/25 sec, f/8.0, ISO 100, 76mm.
