Sunrise in Bali

My sister got married in Bali last Saturday and I was invited to join her joyous occasion (duh, i’m the brother!) Anyway, I was so excited that I could finally capture the so famous Bali sunrise because the place that I was staying in, Nusa Dua, only has sunrises not sunsets, of which would be about 15mins away by transport. Since the sunrise is just about 5 minutes away, I decided to just walk from the hotel.

The security guard told me to cross the road and walk down all the way to the beach. It was dark, I was walking alone down a narrow walkway. Many thoughts filled my mind, what if something happened? What if this is not the right way? (Your mind can really play tricks with you) but God can conquer all amen? I switched on my torch from my handphone and walked down. It was a short distance and there it was, the beach right before me. The view? Stunning! Let my pictures tell the story.


Psst… Did I mention that I tried to do a timelapse of the sunrise?

Just click the link below to watch a short clip of the timelapse. I know it need some improvement, so let me know in the comments how I can improve it yeah?

Pictures were taken in sequence as time went from 0630am till about 0700am.

Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.

God bless!
