Today I woke up at 5:00 in the morning.
On a Sunday morning.
Why? One might ask. Why? I definitely asked myself when the alarm went on.
I got my answer as I arrived to my planned spot at 6:20, exactly four minutes before the sunrise. I could see the the glow of what was to come shimmering in the horizon. Four minutes later the whole Santa Monica was bathing in gold and pink.
The mountains to my left, endless ocean and coastline to my right, gorgeous villas all around and skyscrapers hazing in the remoteness. Intense colors of the rising sun blended with the softness of blue hour. Gentle warm breeze, tranquility and pure beauty.
That's why I woke up at 5am. It was worth it.
Tomorrow i'll sleep
