sunrise at bondi beach

I’m definitely not an early bird, no way… However, it was so worth it to drag myself out of bed at 4:30am last weekend to witness the sunrise magic. The thing you need to bring with you to get a good shot is your camera.  A tripod comes in handy too (especially to begin with). I try to choose the lowest available ISO (100 for my camera) and set the camera to shutter priority so aperture is adjusted automatically as the sun rises. The light will do the trick. In my opinion there’s no or very little post editing necessary. There’re not many people around so the beach is your oyster. I absolutely love the silhouette shots so people do come in handy. Don’t be lazy and get up early one day, you will be glad you did it, guaranteed!

Bali… cnd

There’s something for everyone on this island. If you love to surf, it’s paradise, if you’re keen on partying go to Kuta, food is cheap and delicious, people are friendly, if you just want to rest there are many gems hidden away and an endless number of places to get a massage. If you are into yoga and love spiritual places Ubud is a must for you. Arts and crafts are everywhere, catering for people with different budgets. There are thousands of little shops and independent designers boutiques selling quality clothes and jewellery. You’ll be spoiled for choice. I also went for a day trip to Mt Batur while staying in Ubud. I have to say I’m not a fan of climbing but this one was certainly worth the effort. Amazing views and warm rocks of the living volcano, puffs of steam coming out of random places. Simply magical. The car ride up to the track was fun with breathtaking panorama. I went to see a couple of cultural shows. There are quite a few of them around Bali and I would highly recommend going to one of them. I wouldn’t say Bali has stunning beaches however there are few places worth exploring. I mentioned Dreamland Beach in the previous Bali post however my personal favourite was Padang Padang Beach. Crystal clear water, pure sand and huge rocks here and there reminded me of Thai beaches. If you really want to see amazing beaches you have to go to a nearby islands. More Bali info and photos to come soon…
