Stunning Sunsets: Philippines

Sunny and rainy. The only two seasons in the Philippines. It makes our country warm even when the days are cold. Sure we had our own share of tropical monsoons, but nature sits still as the days of hard wind pass by.

The rainy season officially starts in the second semester every year, and this is the reason the amazing authors of this awesome blog collaborated to show their six-month travel collection of spectacular sunsets around the Philippines before the gray clouds cover the spotlight. Each one had their own personal travels from January to June of 2018 and they have decided to share the colors of warmth, relaxing orange skies, chilling sea breeze, and the vanishing of light across the horizon. Let us take you to different places in the country with our collection of stunning sunset photos.

A map shows the locations of our sunset shots during our travels in the first half of 2018.

The sun, as viewed from Earth, sets in the west. Our country has the most amazing beaches on the planet and when the sun goes beyond the horizon, the view is absolutely breathtaking.
