Dusk comes at Baguio, the chill capital of the Philippines.
This was taken from our hilltop cabin overlooking the city where the lights are.
While we are having our barbecue, i noticed the low cloud over the city, which complimented the sky scape.

The time window for this is just around 2-3 minutes, after that the colors are replaced by something else different.
Luckily i had the landscape guru with me so i got some useful tips about timing.

Thanks for the peek!

Hi Ian,
Superb colors and lighting. The view from atop is exquisite, the clouds are fantastic. As I am planning of visiting the Phil by Feb, I have been debating whether I should visit Baguio, and after seeing this image I probably will. My compliments 'bro. Danilo

LOVE the blue here Ian! Whenever I think of my favorite color, your name pops in my head! PSYCHO! I am..... but you always make such nice blues in your pics! This is beautiful...what?? no extreme pp?? Are you ok? Are you sick?? LOVE the clouds on the horizon!

HI Ian
The deep blue gives a feeling of a balmy evening.
The foreground is well lit and appealing while the city lights in the background add distance, making this a very good shot.

Great colors & view. Beautiful image.

Coucou Ian
Contente de te retrouver :)
Interessant le POV, j'aime bien l'opposition avec les habitations du FG et la ville que l'on devinne en BG.
Une explosion des bleus... ça réveille ;)
...hey j'avais pas fais le rapprochement avec Allan !...
Bonne journée

Hi Ian

Excellent visual,
this blue is wonderful that nor it seems real!
I am amazed with the beauty of this place
and high image definition!
The house in first glides here has a beautiful light that it defines
all his details and of the garden.
Excellent it captures my friend...
Colors like me like!


Sa Baguio ka pala naglagi dito kaya pala di tayo nagkita. Yung note ko sa isang pix ko talagang niyabangan ko dun kasi alam ko maraming pupuna :-)Alam mo naman dito daming mapuna :-)Pero tama naman kayong lahat, inunahan ko lang kayo :-)Kung titignan mo sa EPZ iba ang imahe dun, di putol ang kilay, medyo off kay pareng Rew yun eh :-)Mas nauna kong inapload dun yun. Dami kong natutunan sa workshop, pati pagkalikot sa camera ko, kaya medyo gamay ko na mga settings. Gusto kong bumili sa Quiapo ng lens 18-55mm pang event photography like wedding etc. at flash na mas bigger namay diffuser. Lapit na Dec madaming events dito sayang kung walang raket, dun lang naman ako kikita ng konti. Dito sa Baguio kami nagpulotgata ni Missus year 97'.

Hi İan,
Very beautiful blue hour picture vith excellent atmosphere.TFS.

Beautiful tones in this one, Ian. At 15" most of the leaves are still sharp(ish), there must have been practically no wind at all... great mood.
Here the speed was just right I guess.
For night shots in general I see what exposure the camera proposes, then I set half the speed.

hi Ian,

the colours more like dawn but it is not.. beautiful dusk shot, Ian.. the lights from the city at the far end made this shot more lovelier.. nice mood too.. tfs..

regards, terry

ah our Baguio dusk! nice! i'll never post mine here hehe

wonderful colors and neat pov here, exposed nicely too, great shot!

Hi dear friend,

The sky looks truly beautiful with that low cloud.
Interesting tones in it.
Have a lovely day.

This really jumps off the pages Ian. The colour is just magnificent. Your exposure time is really bang on. The perfect mix of lights and shadows. Truly a beauty skilfully taken. The tiny bit of border in blue really makes it pop out. Well done.
Warm Regards
