Tadlac Lake, Laguna: Taking a Break from Work and Catching a Sony / Sunny Sunrise

Tadlac Lake Sunrise, Laguna • Handheld Sony A6000 + Samyang 12mm f/2
Just want to share a hand-held sunrise shot taken during a break from photoshoot assistance work for a friend in Los BaƱos, Laguna.    Location is Tadlac Lake, formerly known as Alligator Lake, about two hours travel from Manila.  A good time as any to test the Sony A6000 paired with a Samyang/Rokinon 12mm f/2 lens (so I've taken the mirrorless path after more than a decade shooting with Nikon).  

After typhoon Domeng and the rains caused by the habagat (southwest monsoon) we were blessed with a day of intermittent drizzles, squalls and somewhat sunny conditions on days 1 and 2 of the shoot; we were entertaining thoughts of a milky way night sky over the lake (not!) but nonetheless, the heavens cleared up on the morning we were set to wrap up work.  Among photographers, we share this universal joke akin to Murphy's Law -- the weather improves just when you are leaving.   Very much like what they say about life, it's "weather-weather" or in the vernacular, pana-panahon lang.  May my season finally come then.
