Boulder beach of Basco, Batanes is a small island in the north east of Philipines. It was formed from the lava of Mount Yarayu. Here the sunrise is a special event as lights gets reflected on shiny boulder of different size and shape and makes the whole atmosphere magical. On the day of my leaving Batanes, somehow I managed to grab my gear and reach the beach at 0430 hrs just before catching the morning flight back to manila.

Starting from a hotshot point and shoot camera in late 80s to a Nikon FM10 film camera in late 90s, Sanjoy Sengupta used to get 32 out of 36 exposure wrong to a day of digital cameras like canon Powershot A520 and a decent hybrid version canon SX20IS, which were with him wherever he went to capture some beautiful moments, moments of life which would be cherished forever. Then when he finally could not resist the alluring pricy Nikon DSLR, his actual learning started from that moment.
