Photo of the Day: How’s your Sunset?

Not all things are created equal. The equality in nature lies in the exposure to the same elements. What one makes of it, how one deals with it, enhances the inequity. Take sunsets, for instance. We all experience sunsets. But not all sunsets are created equal. The sunset of Boracay, or along Manila Bay or the golden sunset of Batangas is different from your sunset. The sunset of Banaue is equally different. On top of the mountains, overlooking the clouds, chilled by cold breeze, and closer to heaven, this Banaue sunset stands on a different plane, literally and figuratively. I mean, c’mon, look at those rich colors. Rich but muted. It’s like Pia Wurtzbach wearing plain white shirt and jeans — you see something universally beautiful, earthly beautiful rather, but you know there’s something more. Perhaps we can ask the one who took the photo, the lovely JM Diaz (visit and follow her instagram account, @jayeeemm), how this sunset is different. Click the photo to enlarge:
