Sunset / Sunrise Tag

Life has been too busy lately, I have a hard time coping up. Blogfriends know that blogging is not in my priority list so when life gets in the way, blogging is set aside. Lately, as a way of getting away from reality, I have been indulging myself with our old pictures - trying to add colors to them thru Photoshop. Photography is a hobby I want myself to get addicted into. I don't have a top of the line camera nor the professionalism that goes with it. I only have eyes attentive to beauty, and that I think, is already a good start.

MegaMom tagged me to share sunset or sunrise pictures to which I am willing to oblige with gusto. Now, if you could allow yourself some constructive criticisms, that would be highly appreciated. Just be careful tho, you have an affair with an un-professional camera mom.

Sunset at the Chambord Castle, France

The inside architecture of the castle is loaded with what seemed to be the works of art of Leonardo da Vinci. One of the favorites is the spectacular double-helix staircase which is very ingenious. The two helixes ascend the three floors without ever meeting, avoiding the possible meetings of the King's wife and his mistresses. Galing no.

Grand Canyon

Taking a sunset picture in this legendary site was quite an event. Professional photographers and tourists alike crowded the place to capture what that particular sunset had to offer. I had loads of pictures but this one became my favorite. Trust me, the Grand Canyon is just at the background, lol.

Baywatching at Venice Beach, LA

I was a fan of David Hasselhoff, what else. It was a lazy afternoon at the beach and this cabin became a model for my sunset picture.

Fishing Cabin, La Vendée

Typical fishing cabin in the west of France, La Vendée area. Love this picture.


At my hometown in the Philippines. Here is where I spent most of my childhood. Funny it may seem but I live just a few kilometers from the beach but I don't know how to swim.

Marseille, France

Hmm, mas malaki pala ang araw sa France kesa sa Pinas, what do ya think? lol!

Father and Child

Christmas last year. After a grand feast with the family, the two Frenchies asked for a quick dip at the beach. It was a quiet and relaxing family getaway. There was almost nobody at the beach. Look at how sweet my mag-ama were..

Hi Ana. Those are breathtaking shots. Each one is beautiful in its own way. I love the second one and the last one. You took a wonderful shot of your husband and daughter walking in the beach. I love the words you put in that photo. Very moving.

when i first looked at the pictures i thought that "the sunset at grand canyon was nice",then i saw the one in Venice Beach in La i said "no this one is better", but then i saw the one of the bangka..then i said "nope i love this one"..but then i saw the last one..then i made my choice.."the father and daughter one is the best" just proved that we dont really need high powered camera...really great photos you've got here!

dangkin said...

Analyse said...

Rachel, that's also my fave ;)

Hilda, and to think, i took that pix with my old cam, with only 3.2Mpixel low tech quality..

Dangkin, ;)

Raqgold, nope.. we were in the hot and humid phils last year.. but yes, a winter wonderland sunset should be nice too..

Helen, thanks, so i think my father and child bags the most faved award lol

Mitsuru, you wouldnt believe this.. never saw the manila bay sunset yet.. toink*

Francine said...

wow. i love the pictures

julie said...

Ana, I love your photos, especially the last one. We don't have to be pro s in capturing the beauty of nature. What the camera captures probably does not begin to describe what these are, even up close.

Thanks for sharing your photos.

Have a great week :)

Lucille said...

wow galing! you can bet as a real professional photographer na, analyse! :-) that's excellent & nicely taken, ganda ng view! you're such a talented woman. I love to take photos too like these scenic views but i think, i'm only a good mamarazzi for my kids, myself & my whole family! lol
