Gold Coast sunrise

This is the last post of my Gold Coast experience and I am sharing with you the different sunrises we captured at Burleigh Head through out our stay. These photos ain't come easy. We woke up at 3:30am, hanging around by the beach front for hours while feeding the mosquitoes, not once, not twice but 4 times!!

All these photos were taken by Rick, I was merely there giving my mental support, assistance and also deviating the mosquitoes. Hahaha. Anyway, I'm pleased we did get some beautiful shots but the most important thing is the time we spent together and the experience we went through (you know, like sitting in the dark feeding mosquitoes. Hahaha).

I truly enjoy beach at dawn. It is calm, it is quiet. All that is surrounding you is the song of nature i.e. the insects and waves couple with the beautiful twilight backdrop. The air you breathe is so fresh and clean that it clears your polluted mind. You feel like you have found a treasure that not many people even bother nowadays, and you have seen the true beauty of the pure and untainted earth. If you have tried it, I'm sure you know what I mean. If you haven't, well I hope these pictures give you some incentives to meet the true earth we're living.

waaaaaa... so beautiful!!! If there is a chance, I would love to have a trip together with you and Rick! You two are willing to 'pay the price' to get beautiful moments and scenery! I love that!

Trinity:
You sure you want to trip with us? We woke up in weird hours and sometimes late dinner just for the sake of taking photos. I would say we are a bit crazy in this sense. Hahahaha
