shades of blue - boracay island

when the sun is down, one can still stay and wait for the display of the sky's shades of blue. it happens right after the golden sunset.it is during this time when most people go back to their rooms and prepare for the island's night life. lights coming from the different resorts and restaurants begins to dominate.others would still stay as they swim without getting sunburned while people working around the island gets busier.but not many people would stay right after sunrise as they would usually be preparing themselves for the night's feast and party.the other way around, photographers enjoy this part of the night as it shows the island's beauty in a different shade.

Wow, nice shade of Bora, did you get to party? We did not, kasama ko kasi mga kids hehehe, we have to be with them as it was a family bonding moment. We only went to see D'Mall on the last night, I enjoyed Crazy Crepes...

Lawstude said...

amazing shots dom. this probably is one of the best times in boracay - yung papagabi na. naglalabasan na mga tao nito at hudyat na malapit na maging party time sa beach.

napapakanta tuloy ako ng bluer than blue..sadder than sad...

atticus said...

oh, i love that color too, right after the sun sets. it's all blue, no matter how slow you set your speed. and it's beautiful.

Aethen said...

>hi sheng, not really partying but i was able to walk till midnight. drop by coffee shops. it's indeed difficult to get around at night if you have kids with you. i too like those crepes. it' a hit actually in boracay.

>oman, oo saya nga kumuha ng mga picture pag ganung oras. mahirap nga lang kasi wala akong dalang tripod. kaya challenging talaga ang mga kuha sa gabi. kakatuwa mga tao kasi yung iba lumalabas lang pag ganyang oras.

>hi doc rio, hahaha... napa senti tuloy. sorry doc.

>hi atticus, you're right. it's one of the best part of the day to point and shoot.

>aethen, pwedeng pwede mo ng planuhin para sa summer next year.

>borneo, yes it is. but you really have to look for places outside the main beach area if you look for a semi-private setting.

ahlost said...

I love the blue hue....malamig sa mata. But I guess the hue in the Island during this time of the year is really different. adds more to the beauty and the magic of the place.....

Helena de TrĂ³ia said...

luna miranda said...

Beautiful colors. I think I need a little vacay now.

the donG said...

>ahlost, thanks!

>kegler, hehehe... medyo bago nga ito. abangan namin yang black and white shot mo. hindi ko pa rin nasusubukan yan.

>uncleawang, thanks! im happy that you like it.

>hi vic, exactly. a lot of people usually miss to see this time of the night.

>raft3r, salamat pero alam mo na talagang kahit anong kuha mo pag ganung oras makukuha mo pa rin ang ganda.

>pusang gala, oo ganda talaga pero hindi ko alam kung doon lang sa panahong yon.

>hi helena, you're right! but you need to pick some other place around the island for a semi-private place.

>hi luna, my pleasure to share this and thank you. im glad you too like it.

>photo cache, we'll look forward to that.

Hi Dong, do you think that night lights are more wonderful than sun light there in Boracay?
It looks like it is more fun there on night time eh.

I enjoyed this series of blue photos. It's my fave colour. This image of Boracay is more preferable. I like the serenity that I once discovered here, but now gone.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Enjoy the week ahead!
