As mentioned in this post, Isla Naburot is a photographer’s paradise.  It offers scenic views of the islands and the seas, uniquely rustic accommodations, and a really colorful skyline at sunset.  And yes, an equally stunning skyline come sunrise.

yep, the moon was very visible at almost 5 AM

It was still dark when I woke up, as the next photo will show, but because I noticed the pinkish skyline over the horizon, I decided to not go back to sleep.

It was chilly though, so I headed back to my room to get the pashmina I left on the balcony, and I was so happy I went there because I got to enjoy these views.

When I headed back to the main hall and beachfront, the pinkish hues were now darker.

I was also glad that at one point, I opted to just rest on one of the loungers because it gave me this perspective.

Later, I walked around the beachfront and came across what became my favorite subject while there: this banca (boat), because it was always perfectly fringed by  frangipani or other flora, depending on my vantage point.

Isn’t it amazing how the skyline changed colors just when the sun was about to appear?

And as always, I watched in fascination and wonder as the orange skyline turned yellow orange.

This was taken just before the sun emerged.

And this right at the moment when it finally broke free and bathed the island in molten gold.
