Early morning at Telegrafo, Tolosa

I know we have covered what seems like thousands of sunrises and sunsets. For photography buffs, however, this time of day is part of what’s called “the golden hour” where the sun’s soft golden light offers the opportunity to create beautiful, scenic photographs.

The only problem with covering sunrises is that one has to be up early than your usual waking up hour. And in case you are going to shoot not at your usual place but a little further down south, then you factor in your travel time.

Such was the case last Monday, February 22, 2010 when members of the Litratista Group & Camera Club od Leyte & Samar (CCLS) decided to take up a member’s invitation to shoot at his new area of assignment. Fr. Rey Caraballa’s new assignment was at Telegrafo, Tolosa, Leyte – about 30 minutes drive south from Tacloban City.

I woke up at 3:30AM (assembly time was at 4:15AM). And by 4:40AM, we were on the road…

Let the photos speak for themselves…

Fishermen take off to do net fishing locally called, “aghid” where a net is laid out in the water in a letter-U fashion with each end of the net pulled back up to shore by participating locals.
