The previous morning I woke up at 6:30a.m. seeing the morning red horizon peeping through the trees. So i psyched my mind before bed to wake up at dawn and that is 5:00a.m. Sunrise is at 5:25, so I am just right to prepare, have a 3min walk to an area where the horizon is not fully blocked by tall trees. After 1.5hr in the area, the walk back home still gives a lot of subjects to shoot, the dews on leaves, the young leaves and shoots, unfolding flowers, some insects and spiders, and a lot more! Actually, I was out for 2 hours, now very hungry and longing for hot coffee!
Our area overlooks the bay, where the small city is at the other side.
The above are custard apple trees now vegetative preparing for flowering in April
The International Pier is on that other side of the bay
the water shimmers in gold at this moment
Cogon grasses sway with the cold morning breeze!
Even the morning moon at the West is witnessing the grandeur of sunrise!
But i need to go back to the house, my insides are complaining for something hot and filling. Time to have hot coffee and 'suman', a delicacy made from glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk and wrapped like small tubes with banana leaves. This is a common preparation for All Saints' Day in our province. Just like missing our sunrise, I missed it too!
