Sunrise at the Cloud 9 Boardwalk

Surise at the Cloud 9 boardwalk in Siargao, Philippines. This is the kind of shot you get out of your bed for at *^&%$@ 3:30 in the morning. I got up many times for some good sunrise shots and time lapses at this iconic boardwalk, but wasn't always as lucky. Sometimes it remained too cloudy for the nice colours to come out. This day I had the best sunrise, could not have wished for anything more. Had my camera set up taking a time lapse automatically, while I was near the tower shooting video. When I checked my footage afterwards, I found out that I messed up with the settings, causing the scene to be heavily underexposed. Fixable for photos, but in the time lapse scene it caused unrepairable flicker, still hurts me to know I messed up myself. At least I got this great shot, showing one of the early bird surfers coming to check out the waves. They're never as early as the photographer though ;)
