Work In Progress No. 9: Around Tali Beach

A continuous effort to improve my skill…on my way to 10,000 hours of photography, to success and to great photography.

The girls went out for an early summer escape at Tali Beach in Nasugbu, Batangas. It’s about 3-hours drive from Manila. Zigzagging and uphills actually, when you’ll choose the way through Kaybiang Tunnel. But, don’t worry, I think, it was really worth a visit especially when what you much needed now is just a short break.

We’ve checked the Main Beach and the Marina Beach and they didn’t disappoint us. Those are only two of the five beaches inside the area. It wasn’t that crowded when we went there. I guessed, our timing was almost perfect that time. The waters are crystal clear and clean. Though, there’s some rocks underwater. Despite that, I still appreciated the beaches. It actually exceeded my expectation.

Some of my photos at the beach:

This could have been a great opportunity to practice shooting but I was looking after my kids, I only had a few shots. Still, I was happy I had a chance.

Work In Progress No. 8: Super Blue Blood Moon

A continuous effort to improve my skill…on my way to 10,000 hours of photography, to success and to great photography.

2018.01.31

It was a rare event that happened in our lifetime, to have witnessed a super blue blood moon.

To remind myself:

Blue Moon, a second full moon in a calendar month

Super Moon, when the moon is unusually close to Earth, making it bigger and brighter

Blood moon, a moment during an eclipse when the moon appears red

I never wasted this opportunity. I put out my gears and tried to capture my best shots.

It was past 8PM, Philippine time, I started. I didn’t catch the super blue moon that much. While I was getting my best shot, slowly I can see that the moon was turning red. But, I wasn’t successful. I didn’t like my shots. Maybe, I took around or more than hundred shots. It wasn’t easy. It was trial and error. But, luckily I took a few that I can say that I got it.

This was taken a day after the happening of Super Blue Blood Moon. It was too bright that I couldn’t help but capture it, as well.
