Camiguin's Sunken Cemetery

It’s my first time in Mindanao and after weeks of planning the itch to shoot a sunset at Camiguin’s iconic Sunken Cemetery had became unbearable (OA! hehe). We headed to Bonbon and waited for an hour for the sun to go down. Everything looked promising; the sun was out, rocky foregrounds were in place and cloud formations were good. Thirty minutes before the magic hour, sinister-looking clouds from Mt. Hibok Hibok moved in and showered on our parade; this is totally unfair! I was forced to use a rainjacket and shoot a few frames of a premature sunset before everything got lost in the downpour.
