Manila Bay sunset

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 17/01/2010

Seeing a sunset at Manila Bay was on my list of to do things while I was in the Philippines. With only a few days left in Manila I decided to turn off the 24hr NBA channel and take the 3 train trip over to the bay.

The trip started of pretty lousy. It was 4pm on a Friday and the train system here has you packed in like sardines at the best of times. Suddenly the train screeches to a halt and because I was too busy looking out the window, I go flying. Out of every person in Manila, I landed on a guy that looked like he was on holiday from a LA hispanic ghetto, complete with XXL ‘I love LA’ gridiron jersey and shaved head.

When I got to the bay I saw that the sun was about to set and a small crowd had already gathered.

Then it was time to get my snap on.

I thought it was all over. Then the glowing red egg dropped out from behind the cloud and sunk into the horizon.

With the main show over i decided to flick my settings to ‘sunset’. I’m not sure if I’m a fan.

I finally crossed one thing off my to do list and I’m glad I did it. Even though it was a little cloudy, the sunset did not disappoint.
The ride home was sucked. Peak hour on a Friday sucks anywhere in the world. I couldn’t squeeze into the first 2 trains and had to use force to get into the third. If you were on the LRT last Friday and saw a massive angry guy pushing a crowd of Filipinos into a train, there is a high chance it was me. You should have said hi.
