Holy week 2 years ago, I was dragged by my friends for a road trip. We left evening of Good Friday bound to Pangasinan. The plan was to shoot The Cape Bolinao Lighthouse on the rocky hill of Punta Piedra in Barangay Patar. We were clueless that the drive from Manila to Bolinao is longer than Baguio. Sleepy and tired, we decided to take a rest in one of the resorts in Patar. We choose Rock View Resort because of its name (inviting name for landscape photographers).  I roamed along the beach and saw the rugged tidelands blanketed by sea waters because of high tide. The resort caretaker told us that the tidelands usually appear in the late afternoon with big waves crashing on it. We abandoned our original plan of shooting the lighthouse in favor of the promising seascape subject, we didn’t regret it.

Where and When: Bolinao, Pangasinan – April 3, 2010
Gears:  Nikon D80 + Nikkor 18-70mm + ND8 filter
Settings: 18mm, 8 secs, f8, ISO 100
