Eureka! : Glorious sunset in Pura, Tarlac


Sunset in Pura

Going home for the Christmas in Nueva Ecija, we traversed SCTEX and exited at La Paz, Victoria, and Pura all in the province of Tarlac. While at at Mabalacat area of SCTEX the boys keep telling me there is a beautiful cloud formation of on the left. of course we could not stop along SCTEX just to take a photo. You see the kids are already used to seeing beautiful sceneries knowing that I am a photography buff. Their eyes are trained, so to say.

When we reached Pura, Tarlac, I noticed a spectacular cloud formation on the left, and the boys (my son and my nephew) saw it too! So we had to stop for a while and I took some quick shots. I took this in RAW so I can easily adjust exposures later on in Lightroom, and I am just so happy it came out after tweaking on the exposure and colors.

No need to mention but I am a sucker for beautiful sunsets, and rarely do I chance upon a beautiful cloud with silver lining, with the rays of sun seeping through it. I think, this is one of my best sunset photos, ever.

And this is definitely a fitting photo for a eureka moment!
