In early December we attended my nephew’s destination wedding in the beautiful Mayan Riviera region of Mexico. I am happy to share a collection of my sunrise photos from that memorable vacation.
For me the sunrise is the perfect time to go and walk along the empty beach. I enjoy the feel of the sand between my toes and the smell of fresh and salty ocean air. I admire the spectacular seascape with all of its shades of grey, blue, yellow and gold. It is a great day to start another day on vacation.
I also love the graceful beauty of palm trees and love to watch the sun rising over the sea between their branches. Looks amazing to me!
I truly appreciate the beauty of nature and I find sunrises to be such an amazing phenomenon. These beautiful moments were an added highlight to a wonderful trip and a very special family event.
