[Photo Journal / A-Z Photo Story Challenge] G is for Glorious Golden Glow of Sunrise



Myra here.

It’s been quite awhile since I joined Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. I am glad to be back with the letter G, as I share this recently-captured photograph from an overnight camping trip that I had with my husband a few weeks ago.

Glorious Golden Glow of the Sunrise


The sun was just gradually peeking through the clouds here. It must have been around 7 in the morning.


And there it is. It was such a privilege to witness the sun gradually rise to the skies in all its golden glory. After posting a few photos on Facebook, a dear artist friend of mine was inspired to paint the colours of dawn as you can see in this artwork:


My daughter and I are holding on to the artwork, while the fabulous artist herself, Madam Susanna Goho-Quek is behind my daughter. Truly beautiful.

Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
