Today in the early morning the rains came on strong. The Cost Guard prohibited commercial activity on the waters (for the second day in a row) in the morning. According to the Cost Guard office the current typhoon is called "Marce" and looks like its hitting Manila and Central Luzon pretty hard with gusts of wind up to 100kph! After a few brief showers the weather cleared enough for a walk over to Corong Corong Beach near El Nido. The next few HDR images were created from there. If anyone is interesting in having a full resolution versions of these images (new computer desktop background?) just email me and I'll send you whichever one you want. Enjoy!
