It’s the “unpredictable” time here in the Philippines. The weather is unpredictable, it may change from sun into storm in under half an hour.
Today the weather’s been restless pretty much the whole time. Sun when we got into the water. Rain and heavy wind when we came up an hour later. The trip back to shore was rough, and we were already thinking that the second dive may not go. But then it changed again and we went out for the second dive, only to come up an hour later in high waves which made getting back on the vessel quite challenging. The rest of the day the wind has picked up, and the sea’s been rough. High waves, ominous clouds over the horizon, we might be in for a treat during the night.
The clouds in the sky made for a very dramatic picture and the waves rolling in on the beach added to that. I decided to go out with the camera to shoot some pictures.
And then it did get rougher. Not completely out of the blue, but still quite sudden.
And then I had to run back to dry the camera. It’s supposed to be … water repellent… Although salt water isn’t the best thing to be bathed in as a camera. I dried and cleaned it as good as I could. For now it’s still working. Hopefully it continues to.
