The reality of climate change is very real in the Philippines and the immediate effect of this is apparent in the changed weather pattern. In the past, April to May typically bring forth fiery colored sunsets but this has not been the case last year and this year. I am currently vacationing in Bohol (Central Philippines) and as I have done in the past, late afternoon is spent at the beach or at a hillside where I can capture the scenery as the sun sets. The attached photo shows a different kind of sunset. Despite being untypical as it was a cloudy day (again), nature has a way of bringing out different colors, hues and shades that evokes feelings of awe, gratitude and praise. Long after humanity perishes from this earth through its own folly, nature's beauty and majesty will continue, as in a sunset. The photo was taken with a Nikon D500 and a Nikkor 70-200mm f4 at Base ISO 100. Other than size reduction, the photo is straight out of the camera.
Rush hour at sunset: It’s more fun in the Philippines. There was a byline in the campaign to draw more tourists to the Philippines last year that goes "...more fun in the Philippines". I thought of using this byline in conjunction with these GH3 test photos taken in Boracay Beach in the Philippines. The photos centered around a traffic jam of sailboats as these endeavored to return to the beach or to leave the beach during sunset creating a veritable traffic jam during rush hour. I was planning to take photos of the sunset but took advantage of the opportunity to take photos of people taking photos of the sunset. All shots taken handheld using the m4/3 Panasonic GH3 and the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8. Rush Hour: Its more fun in the Philippines No. 1: A photographer’s dilemma: Where to begin? No. 2: "This would look great in my Facebook page." No. 3: Much later, this is my photo of the "sunset" after the sun had set, without the photographers. I am quite pleased with the GH3's dynamic range.
