A Minute To Eternity

Category: Sense of Place

It was my first trip to Lombok Island and my guide promised me I will get a stunning sunset at the Senggigi Beach. But as we hit the road, I realised we're not gonna make it on time. Knowing I was a bit upset, my guide stopped on a beach near the city. He said, it's not that pretty, but at least I will get my sunset. It was almost sunset when we got there. I ran as fast as I could, and without even trying to catch a breath, I pulled my camera and pointed it to the beach. It was the only pic I took on that beach. And it was the best sunset of my life. The one minute of eternity.

Location: Loang Baloq Beach, Lombok, Nusa Tenggara Barat, Indonesia
