2007 Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day – Fireworks Display


This just happened a few hours ago. Pictures taken from Sabang Beach, about 3 kilometers away from the Baler Fish Port. I went to the beach a few minutes before 8 and found lots of people at Labasin waiting for the show. I started unpacking my gears a few meters away from the crowd and before I could snap the camera to the tripod and check on the settings the fireworks started, so I started shooting away hoping I would get a couple of good shots. Then it started raining so I packed my gears and went home. I got 1% success rate on the photos.

Best place to see the fireworks tonight would be at Sabang Beach. Let’s hope the weather will cooperate as it is raining here in Baler as I write this post.
