Sadly, No Sunset View

Paratong Beach
Bacnotan, La Union
29 July 2009


It's not as pretty as some of the well known beaches in the Philippines, but because it was just walking distance away from our house in La Union, every time we go there to have a short vacation, going to this beach will always be part of our itinerary. When dad was still alive, we would go there early morning to check the catch of the fishermen, but ever since my Aunt Julie asked us to go to the beach for her birthday in 2008, I realized this beach host a very good view of the sunset, so we just go there to watch the sun bids goodbye.

Such is the reason why I went there on this particular day.


Family. When I got there, I saw this family of three awaiting the sunset, too.


Fishing Gear. There was a spot where fishermen have built their huts, and while I was waiting for the sun to set, I walked over the fishing village to take pictures, but I was still a bit hesitant on taking pictures of them directly. Instead, I just gave my attention to this, which was something they use in catching fish. Of course, they use the net, too.


Rows of boat. It was a cloudy, windy day, so the fishermen didn't go catch fish. The little mountain in the middle of the image is where the cement factory was located, something this town was known for.




Blue/Orange. What I loved about watching sunset in this beach was that one could really see the sun fade by the horizon. Sadly for me, the clouds have blocked the view, so I could only take pictures of the sky changing colors.

Sunset watching here has been our tradition, so even if there was no good view of sunset from this particular day, expect to see more of it as I travel time to time in La Union.

The clouds add character to the sunset, Jenn. I think it's beautiful. Thank you for sharing your photos. I hope your beach doesn't become overrun with tourists!

Yeah, agree with Marites. To have a private little beach is awesome in itself. The clouds made your sunset interesting actually. :-)

the sky is still beautiful, the layers of clouds make it more interesting.
