The setting of the sun begins around 4:30-5:00 in the afternoon. It is best whenever the weather is great - unclouded day, no rain or storm and all that.
One good day, when my friends and I strolled around Manila, we decided to stay at Manila Bay until the sun goes down. We want to witness the sun as it bids good bye to all the people that hated him(the sun) because of the hot climate that day. Poor Mr. Sun, sometimes people just don't understand why he is doing that.
Anyway, that day, despite the boredom and exhaustion, became a veeeeeery wonderful day for us. It was my first time to witness a play in which the casts are Mr. Sun, the clouds around him, the mountains, the sky, and the bay itself. Here's the story....
This photo was taken just before the setting of the sun at Manila Baywalk located at Roxas Boulevard, Manila, Philippines.
In this scene, the sky looks very calm. Who would have thought that a noon,when the sun isn't ready to go down(he is still up there),can actually make a beautiful image such as this one?
The Bay seems sad though. But nevertheless, this one is something that you should not miss when you visit Manila.
Another great view that can create an impact to the audience of the play is when a ship is passing by the bay.
The ship is like saying goodbye to the reflection of the sun, thanking the sun for letting him(the ship) to witness the play.
This one is still at Manila Bay. The sun is preparing himself already for his farewell.
This image is not the highlight of the story yet. It signals the climax though.
When watching the setting sun, one of the best part is to be stimulated lightly by the warm color of orange - a perfect feeling after experiencing the calmness brought by the cheerfulness of yellow and before the aggressive color red intensify the stimulation.
There it goes! The climax of the play.
When the sun is already in his perfect shape.
The three photos show how the sun set has ended. It's sad but it really has to end.
All of these happened in one place - at Manila Bay.
In spite of the rumor that the bay is barely well taken care of, we can't deny the fact that whenever we pass by the bay and watch as the sun sets, we tend to forget all the worries and problems that the whole tiring day brought about us.
