Paras Resort Sunset on Camiguin Island. I stayed at a cheaper place across the road. But I paid for a meal on New Year's Eve here. I liked the reflection in the resort's swimming pool at left. From the resort's website:

"Paras Beach Resort is just a short ride from the capital town of Mambajao and a three minute boat ride away from the crystal clear blue waters and white sand beaches of the famous 'White Island'.

Originally built as a private beach house of the Paras family, Paras Beach Resort has become a landmark of comfort and convenience in the island paradise of Camiguin.

Since its opening in March of 1995, Paras Beach Resort has catered to both local and foreign tourists. Private companies and Government agencies have patronized the resort for their out of town seminars and conferences."

This was actually taken 30 minutes after sunset which I spent at the Sunken Cemetery in nearby Bon Bon Village. Time exposure of about 4 seconds. No tripod, but I rested the camera on a stone balcony, & used coins under the camera, to angle the shot upwards.

Hi Chris,

I like the lighting and contrasts in this. The sunset is beautiful and the lights around the pool fit the shot nicely. Another wonderful scene, TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Chris ,

You played very well with lighting condition,here I see three different layers with different lighting and shades condition,the very FG is darker where as the middle BG lighter and far BG the sky is more light and amazing texture of clouds can be seen,the off center palm trees with illuminated lighting looks fabulous,must have enjoyed paras resort dinner:)
Best Wishes,

  • Great

Hi Chris,
Quite a variation in your image.
From blue to dark silhouettes and
a blend of soft colours as you look
towards the horizon. The illuminated
tree trunks offers its own charm. A
splendid image with a great POV.
