around 4:45 PM
I was at the beach in Cebu on Wednesday afternoon taking pictures of sea creatures while my friend's kids were picking sea urchins. I was waiting for the sunset until my friend told me that the sunset can be seen from the hill where we walked on earlier on the way to the beach. We retraced our steps and upon reaching the slope, I realized with a tinge of disappointment that we missed the sunset.
We got here around 6:30 PM and the horizon was not as colorful as I expected it to be.
But in a matter of seconds, orange "flames" started to get through the clouds.
In a span of 2 to 3 minutes, the sky turned fiery.
I was mesmerized.
This looks like a ball of fire falling from the sky.
It felt like the sky waited for us to be here at the right moment.
What a spectacle!
Definitely, the greatest show on earth!
"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song..." ~ Sylvester McCoy
