Sunrise from Gili Trawangan, Bali, Indonesia
The Story of "First Light"
Our time on Gili Trawangan (aka Gili T) was some of the most memorable from all of our time in Bali, Indonesia, and this morning holds a particularly tight grip on our heart strings. Filled with adrenaline from the epic sunrise that started our day, we threw on our snorkels and went immediately to the crystal-clear waters, where we would swim with countless turtles who vanished one-by-one as the day grew on and the waters became more crowded.
While I struggle to wake up for these morning miracles, I am seldom disappointed by the decision to do so. Not surprisingly, most of my favorite photos were taken before before the sleep had even left my eyes.
