Stormy Boracay - May 10, 2011

Fourth day of Stormy Boracay 2011 and it seems the weather has greatly improved with more sky less of the dark, gray clouds. Yipee!

She's supposed to be the bride of the Boracay beach wedding that got cancelled.

My niece with her grandmother having a swim at the beach for the first time.

My niece still unsure of the fine sand but she seems willing to try that sand, trusting her mom.

I'm loving the colors today.

This image taken at 10:55 AM and I couldn't recall why I didn't had images afterwards until 3:30.
3:27 PM and we're under the sun again but not swimming.

We walked along the beach of Station 1 and wonder I didn't took some pics.

Boracay's national road. We're going to an ATM machine.
We went strolling at the beach fronts.

Sandbar during the day.
This is familiar to many and is located in Station 2.  This is just adjacent Red Coconut Hotel. The tower is likely owned by the resort "La Reserve".  We stayed here in 2003, my first time to see Boracay. Quite expensive since the rooms are quite big and serves the higher end with telephone, television with flat screen TV, DVD player, safe box or electronic safe box, hair dryer, bathrobe, slippers, refrigerator, mini bar, wi-fi Internet access, balcony or veranda.

I recall this image is taken at D' Mall. I just can't remember what we did here.

We're back at Jony's beach front and went swimming again. 5PM.

That's for kite surfing.

Beer in can floating at the sea shore.  I took it and intentionally cradled it on the sand for this shot. :)

Shot taken at 6:13 PM and this truly, is the color cast of by the setting sun.

Last image for the day and the only sunset I got in Stormy Boracay.  It's all good though.
After an hour, we had dinner.

Bored, she played with the bell.
While chilling inside the restaurant, fireworks display began.
It turns out to be a fireworks display produced by Sandbar Boracay.

The fireworks display is worth the watch and lengthy enough.  The pictures could have been better with a tripod to avoid blurring. 

When taking pictures of fireworks, it is better to use slow shutter speeds.
On many cameras, this can be selected by choosing a scene mode with an icon depicting fireworks. With this setting, the camera automatically sets its focus to far subjects, selects slow shutter speeds, and disables the flash.
On more advanced cameras with manual controls, selecting shutter speed priority, settings of 1/8 to a few seconds and manual focus to infinity would do.

That's it for tonight and the rest of the day. Today was the typical Boracay day, mostly sunny and full of fun.   Finally, we got what we came for.
