Of Silhouette and Sunset

elation!

Charlotte, a friend of mine who works in China, was here a couple of weeks ago. Making the most of her 14-day Christmas vacation in the country, we went to a beach. Not to take a splash really but just to watch the sunset. It was more of a whim on my part than her or Tet who was also with us during the road trip. Our initial plan was to go to Caleruega, and had nowhere to go after that so I suggested that we wind away our time watching the sunset at a nearest beach. It was here that I asked Charl to pose a silhouette for me.

Every day I wake up and it's Sunday

Whatever's in my head won't go away

The radio is playing all the usual

What's a Wonderwall anyway?

Beautiful, you captured the moment perfectly. You also captured a lot details on the background, especially on those small waves and the island, which really completes the shot.

Btw, I like that Travis song a lot. Their album The Man Who is one best albums I've heard.

@photo cache:
she did jump for joy and eventually got back to sulking when her last day was over.

@Dom:
yep. somewhere in Nasugbu actually. we just found this resort with not much people around and has a good spot to view the sunset.

@kyels:
thanks a lot. :-)

@redge:
good to hear. i am a big fan of all Travis albums. i agree, The Man Who is one of their bests if not the best. Why does it always rain on me? has been my nationa anthem, hehe.astig.
