Around the Philippines as witnessed by the setting/rising sun

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” –Jo Walton

 

The sun best accentuates the places we see. For a few minutes, the sun allows us time to meditate on what has been and what will be. Be it the daily work grind, weekend vacation, or an ordinary day, a sunrise or a sunset never fails to evoke beauty and optimism.

Here are some of the place I have been in the Philippines and the sun as my constant companion.

SUNSET

“Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under.” – C. JoyBell C.
