  1. Over the years of taking pictures, I’m moved by the reflection of light from clouds, specially at sunrise or sunset. The separations of colors from the light of the sun is nothing less than spectacular. And every dawn is different, so you never know what you will find when you go out to the terrace when the sun is just rising over the horizon.

    I have a problem photographing sunsets, because the sun is hidden by nearby hills and also because of the presence of electric cables and houses. Whereas at the area facing East, the scenery is clear of these obstacles.

    During the next few days i will be posting more pictures of sunrises in Panama City. The reflected and diffused light is amazing. A real treat for the eyes.

    Oh, to answer your question. This is the picture of a sunrise in Panama City, Panama shot from our back terrace about 6:30 a.m.

  2. Hola Omar,
    I watched many sunrises while stationed on Fort Grant (Isla Flamenco) in the ’60’s. I think the sun reflecting off the ocean must add to the startling varieties of colors, as the clouds seem to be lit from above and below at the same time? Sailors at sea probably get this view often but for those of us on land, it is spectacular.
    My dad’s hobby was photography but that was in the days of film. He was especially interested in sunsets when we lived in the Midwest. He did his own developing as well so I would have to say he was very serious about his photos.

  3. I have been planning to stay in a hotel near the beach in Farallón, called “Hotel Cameron”. The goal is to photograph clouds like these above the ocean, to get the incident light from the sun hitting the clouds and the reflected light from the ocean to the clouds at the same time. The double light effect should be spectacular, in short of a better word.

    I never got involved in film photography. I enjoy photography as a hobby, and film photography for me is too much of a hassle to enjoy it as a hobby. I prefer digital photography which is a lot easier to master. Having said that, there are many photography techniques that apply to both genres of photography. Specially where lighting skills are concerned. That is a subject a like: light!

  4. That was exactly my impression when I went out to our back terrace to take a look at the sky. It was absolutely a dramatic fiery sky . Thank you for your comment Desley. Nice to hear from you from the land down under. 🙂
