About the Location: The Philippines is a nation comprising 7,640 islands. It is a remarkable place with too many places to explore in one lifetime. With villas set within a protected cove and in front of a stunning backdrop on just one small island, there are endless opportunities to watch the sun rise or to watch the stars rotate through the night skies.
About the Shot: Patience is key with night photography. But who wouldn’t mind standing here for awhile? With a long exposure, I was able to capture both the stars in the sky as well as the cliff face behind the villas. It was the ambient light from those villas that illuminated the cliff which came to life with an open shudder.
