Staying at an ultra cold air-conditioned room is problematic for photographers in tropical countries.
It was an exquisite Palawan morning I woke up to that day. There was a nice cloud formation and the sun was just striking it with the right kind of light. I quickly got my camera from my bag, took off its cap, peered through the viewfinder and lo and behold. Fog.
The change in temperature fogged the lens filter and the viewfinder. Wiping it off didn’t work.
I waited for the camera to adjust to the temperature as I watched the sun throw off a bravado of colors into the sky. After what seemed like forever, the camera is finally usable.
I was able to get one good photo of the pastels before everything transformed to a normal morning.
