March 13-17, 2017

My last pilgrimage to Manila Bay was back in rainy day September 2016. Now that it's summer, it's only fit to take advantage of the clear skies and warm weather. Every time I visit, I pick a specific lens to feature. So this time, it's the Sigma 18-200mm that I mostly shot with, along with the Reflex-Nikkor C 500mm f/8.

The thing with shooting landscape is that even if you check the weather before you go, you're never sure you get what you want. So persistence is a requirement. You must be willing to go back day after day. It pays!

Day 1 was okay. There was sun, but no sunset. The sun became shy and hid. There was full moon. (On my way home, I had to drop by the police station to report something.)

Day 2 was a rainy day. Me and my gear was soaking wet. Earlier that day, sir Ted gave a treat for lunch at Dad's World Buffet in West Avenue.

Day 3 was another okay day, but the sunset was smothered by thick clouds again.

Day 4 was a great day. I shot with the 500mm only (no 2x teleconverter).
