Life is an adventure!

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
― Mother Teresa

How I do it:

Go to the beach at 4 in the morning.
Prepare your tripod and camera.
Settle comfortably on the shore, just a little out of waves’ reach.
Fix timer.
Wait for signs of golden rays coming out.
Wait for clouds to slowly roast into golden hues.
Press button.
Position yourself in front of camera.

Bask in the glow of your sunrise.

Repeat process until happily satisfied and out of breath.

Don’t forget to wash the sands off your tripod.
