Any difference when the sun sets in the West, where you probably are, to my end somewhere in the East, specifically in the Philippines?

“Magic Hour” in San Julian

August 2, 2009

“In photography, the golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour, especially in cinematography) is the first and last hour of sunlight during the day, when a specific photographic effect is achieved with the quality of the light.” Golden_hour_%28photography%29 (From:

The magic hour passes very quickly. While waiting for the bus to come that would take us back to Tacloban City, Leyte from Eastern Samar last July 24, I took some shots between 6am – 6:45am in front of Gilda Quintua’s house located at the corner of J.P. Rizal St. and the National Road…and captured the moments when the town was just starting to wake up.
