Skywatch#98 The Blue Hour

Photobucket


It's called the blue hour. The time when the twilight in the morning or in the evening when daylight or darkness is not full yet. The period actually lasts for just a few minutes than an hour. Still, it's one of my favorite of day because of the play of light not only in the skies but also on earth.

Photo was taken just outside Abreeza Mall by the fountain when the blue hour was transpiring and the moon looked like a hanging comb facing up on the dark blue sky.

2nd Lamdag Dabaw Characters

The 2nd Lamdag Dabaw (Lights Parade) was held in the evening of the 21st December, 2011. It was scheduled 6:00 in the evening but for some reason, it started past 7:00 in the evening. By that time, there were already too many people waiting impatiently along Roxas Ave. where we also stood waiting. Nonetheless, the parade was colorful, exciting and fun. Here are some of the character-participants of the parade.

Skywatch#97 Heaven And Sea

Photobucket


Photo was taken while in the plane on our way from Tacloban City to Cebu City last month. The flight was in the early morning and the overcast skies disappointed my wish for blue skies. Nevertheless, this view more than compensated for the disappointment because it looked like there was no boundary between the overcast greyish skies and still waters off the coast of Mactan Island, Cebu.

Skywatch#96 MacArthur Landing Memorial, Leyte

Photobucket

The weather was cranky that day. Rain and sunshine battled with each other while we were on our way to the MacArthur Landing Memorial in Palo, Leyte. Relief washed over me when the sun won out the rain when we arrived at the memorial but the relief was only for a few minutes because rain came hard even if the sun was shining. We decided to have our lunch while waiting out for the rain to stop. Thankfully, our timing was right because the sun shone again after we finished our lunch.

wikipedia:
The MacArthur Landing Memorial in Red Beach, Palo, marks the spot where the American liberation forces landed. The Palo Cathedral was converted into an evacuation hospital for Allied forces during World War II. Hill 522 in Palo was the entrance to the first liberated town in 1944.

I decided to take a photo of the water reflections of the statues of General MacArthur with his soldiers but when I looked closer on my camera, I saw a rider on top of the hat of one of the soldiers. Can you see him?
