Majestic Puraran in Baras faces the Pacific and as mentioned by Mon, it is one of the few places in the Philippines that sunrise light reaches first. the experience was new, the sunrise was so pure that our camera really captured intense colors that we need to reduce in post.

We were lucky in the first day, we woke up at 4:00am, the resort owned by an american surfer was 5 minutes away from the seashore downhill. It was raining when we woke up but eventually it stopped as soon as we reach the coast.

This is another take of the beautiful coastline of Puraran and Gigmoto.





This was taken at the far left of the cove, bountiful in rocks, seastacks and karsts.

On the far left you will notice a cliff with a tombstone. I actually climbed this cliff and based on the writing I presume it was a Japanese surfer who died in a surfing accident (which I was unable to confirm). The waves of Pururan is not for beginners. It is a an unforgiving place, ragged coral reef that breaks the wave and swells that reach 10 ft.





Edwin I've seen most of your work from the start but this one is special. Ganda nito pare. Bagay na bagay.

sir Edwin, may i ask your permission if i can use this only and only as my desktop background?

i believe that no post processing was done in each of your shot....truly stunning and remarkable!

Intensity

The intense morning glow of the Puraran sunrise beat down our backs as we struggled to maneuver ourselves between the slippery rocks. The beautiful sky was mesmerizing, and it seemed like no matter what direction we pointed our cameras, we couldn't take a bad picture. The light was just PERFECT. It was intense, overwhelming, yet soothing and peaceful. Really, there's nothing like a beautiful sunrise to start the day.

@crispyparty...sir Aids, if i may ask, besides a tripod, what other gears/equipments did you use to achieve this effect? did you use a gnd filter?

also, medyo kakapalan ko na po mukha ko, ano po exif nung Intensity?

maraming, maraming salamat po at napakaganda ng kuha ninyo  ;)

Hi Jojo. Thanks for appreciating the photo.

If i remember correctly, the only filter I had here was a Lee .9 SE GND filter.

EXIF as follows:

Shutter speed - 2secs, Aperture - f/11.0, Focal Length - 17 mm, ISO Speed - 50

If you have the chance, I recommend you join the next Chasing Light Workshop conducted by Edwin Martinez(EdwinM) and Jay Jallorina. All your questions, both in shooting and in post-processing will be answered there :)

Patrick,

One of my favorite shots in Puraran, you were at the right time at the right place, sunbursts or sunstars are one of the hardest element in a landscape to shoot. Perfectly captured and perfectly composed.


Christian,

High tide going to low tide.


We were shooting till 9am on July 8, 2010, tides were diminishing, we were able to venture more and go closer to certain landmarks. This shot was taken with an nd400 and b/w profile I created for landscape.

Off the cam tones, pano-cropped, sharpened and resized only.





The mountain cliffs and ranges are part of another town known as Gigmoto. We weren't able to explore this part, the roads are still being built as of this writing.

 


Thanks Tito, Actually, I forgot to convert it to sRGB before posting, that's why colors are a bit off...
Here's the correct version.. sorry for that :D

Patrick,

I have been waiting for your posts, you and melvin showed me one trait that I seem to have lost. The entusiasm and resilience to push one self. I know you have a lot more to post for Puraran.

I love the last photo as the sun bathed the light.


Pareng Jon,

Thanks man.
