Exceptionally clear sky in Tagaytay taken on the morning of February 24, 2012. The blue-orange hue that characterize a 100% cloudless horizon extends 360 degrees in all directions. Image taken with an XPERIA mini pro mobile phone camera set to ‘Auto’ mode.
Sunset at Manila Bay on March 12, 2013 while waiting for comet Pan-STARRS, taken with a Canon 450D DSLR, 50 mm lens, f/22, ISO 100, 1/4000 sec exposure. While solar filters are not required in taking images of sunrises and sunsets, safety precautions must be observed to avoid permanent eye damage: never look directly at the Sun through the camera’s optical view finder; use the ‘Live-View’ function instead.
