Capturing the first or the last rays of sun

Tagallalang Rice Terraces, are surrounded by trees on all sides, making the photos taken during the golden hour, both during sunrise and sunset, stand out from the rest. The terraces are open 24 hours, so if you really want to capture those first rays of sun, passing through the canopy of coconut trees, you need to get on your scooter, and get those shots, before the big tourist buses start coming, which is usually around 10 AM.
