The Last Sunrise of 2013

Imbé, December 31th of 2013. I woke up early, at 05:30, sooner than anyone else wakes up on the beach, except for fishermen. I took care not to wake anyone and left the house with my backpack on the way to the shore. Arriving there, a big surprise: a huge crowd, people partying since the night before, drunken walking like zombies or worst, in their cars. I realised I’m getting old. Until a friend spots me and comes by to catch-up. In the sand, the waves have created a pool, which is reflecting the clouds in the image in an almost unreal composition. The boat passing by in the background brings the final touch to the scene.
