There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.
It was just last weekend when I got invited to stay for a night in Lingayen, Pangasinan. It was an invitation hard to pass as the last time I was in this area was during a Lakbay Norte tour. It was an easy, sort of laid back escape spending most of our time at this wonderful resort called El Puerto Marina Resort and got to see the preparation for the 70th Anniversary of the Leyte Gulf Allied Force Landing. The weather was just wonderful that time, cold, sky was clear amidst the partial full moon brightening up the landscape. I missed the milky way that I wanted to shoot so I just waited for the sunrise. I really like the beach in Lingayen. It may be gray but it was really wide and the sand was really fine. It was really pleasant to walk around barefoot. With time in my hands, I had some crazy idea popped into my head and shot this one. This Nikon Shot was to document the surreal morning experience I had with this wonderful morning landscape while I Spotify at the “Smooth Morning” playlist. Shot with the Nikon D7100, check out the settings below.
