Photographer's Note

'El Nido' is Spanish for 'The Nest'. Some of the myriad of rocky limestone islands & peaks of the Bacuit Archipelago can be seen in the background. Swallows nest in the higher, inaccessible parts, & the resin they secrete to secure their nests to the cliff faces, is popular in bird's nest soup, an expensive gourmet item much loved by the Chinese. But here, I was just enjoying the simplicity of a tropical sunset at Corong Corong Beach, which faces due west. (Sunsets in El Nido town about 1 km to the right are not as good, as the beach there faces north.)
