MORNING WALK SHOTS

Every morning when I walk my dog we always head to the beach to enjoy views like this. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on the sand so the boardwalk is the closest we can get to enjoy the beach. During my walk the other day, the sea was so calm it was almost like a lake. There was no breeze in the air and the humidity was at record high. The sun was already way above the horizon and the entire sky was curtained by these wispy cirrus clouds. Everything was so still as if they were posing for a painter…or perhaps a photographer. I immediately pulled out my iPhone 11 Pro Max and took these shots using the wide angle lens setting. The photo above was the very first one I took and is my favorite. I believe the beach is the perfect place to start the day…it is both calming and energizing.

SOUTH FLORIDA DREAMIN’

I consider myself very fortunate to live in this part of the country as other people have to save money and plan vacations just to experience this.  Meanwhile, I wake up to this every morning as part of my daily routine…I jump out of bed, put on my flipflops, leash my dog and walk 5 minutes to the beach to greet the sunrise. Each morning may not be as dreamy as this but watching the sun rise from the horizon is quite a liberating experience.  To live near the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is like living in a dream…and moving here is probably one of the best decisions I ever made in my life.  My encounter with the sunrise every morning rejuvinates and at the same time excites me…and thankfully, my ever reliable iPhone is always in my pocket ready to capture the promise of another beautiful day.

FORT LAUDERDALE BEACH

Living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is like being on vacation year round with the beach just a short drive away…in my case, 10 minutes. I am not a beach person so the ocean being so close didn’t really matter much to me when I first moved here from Miami (home of the world famous South Beach). However, every now and then I take the time to drive down to the beach to enjoy the salty breeze and the spectacular view. This morning was one of those days (happens about two to three times a year) when I felt the need to see the ocean.  Thankfully, the beach wasn’t crowded so I got to take a few decent shots minus the crazy crowds. Fort Lauderdale Beach was once popular amongst university students coming here for Spring Break. Today the city host visitors from all over the world who wants to enjoy some Florida sunshine minus the chaotic vibe of South Beach in Miami.
