What I can still remember when I took this photograph was that it was a nice summer weekend afternoon drawing to a close. This was one of those few moments that I used the 70-200mm zoom for something other than live events.

The afternoon glow was very interesting as the light came not the usual blue paired with red, but yellow with a tinge of green. The clouds show cold air suspended by warm air beneath it. To top it off, a 747 is gaining altitude as it makes its way outside of the the busy Metro Manila airspace.

In certain parts of the world, spring has arrived or is coming. In my little corner, here in Manila, Philippines, the transition from wet season to dry season is in full swing. While winds from the north are still blowing, they are steadily being replaced by easterly winds—and that could only mean one thing, summer is just around the corner.
