In front of the resort hotel stay is the beach. Wake up earlier intent to enjoy the peace moment with the low light, and light up slowing during sun rise moment.
During travel, for the recent few year I like to wake up early, go out and setup tripod for take the landscape photo. At that time, less people moving around, I feel peace and calm with the surround environment.
It help me to enjoy the specific moment while I enjoy the air and surrounding environment for what I saw and feeling along the way. Photo become visual trigger for my specific travel experience and moment.
