Good Morning Bali

by | Sep 30, 2020 | 0 comments

My alarm goes at 5:30am, as it does every day when I’m hunting for the perfect picture. It’s still dark outside, but I know something magical is about to take place because I can see the stars – there are no clouds.

I get dressed, walk out the door, and make my way to the beautiful rice terraces of Ubud, Bali – which is famous for its spectacular views. As I come closer, I can see the horizon is starting to get some color, and that this morning I am lucky – the volcano ‘Gunung Agung’ is clearly visible.

Trudging up some paths I come to a rice field that has recently been harvested and after rice harvests, the fields get flooded with water. These pools of water now beautifully reflect the clouds, painted pink by the coming sunrise.

With the palm trees as a beautiful black silhouette, the colors pop out of this jaw-dropping sunrise panorama.

Vietnam Sunset

Reaching this panorama viewpoint in Ninh Binh isn't for the faint of heart, of the weak of knees – getting up there is only possible by a steep climb of 500 steps. And it's busy – very, very busy (well, maybe not right now.) Although I am not a big fan of tourist...
