Duta Village Resort Kuantan Part 3 - The Sunrise

During our stay at Duta Village Resort in Kuantan I took the opportunity of waking up early to catch the sunrise over the sea. I remained at the beach from just before 7am until 7:30am and these were the best pictures I managed to snap . . .

The little balls of sand made by tiny crabs digging homes created a lovely foreground to this image

Basking in the early morning light . . .

We met these people from KL the night before

Their silhouette figures were perfect for a picture!

The sun finally appeared above the clouds at around 7:20am

Love the sun's golden glow across the sea

It was so peaceful and calming that I felt I could reach out and touch the sun . . .

Is appreciating nature one of your priorities in life? What do you do to relax and find peace?


  1. It's amazingly beautiful - Great shots! Sunrise - The best moment of my day too. I love being in nature, we can learn so much from it and find the serenity that we miss when living in a a busy city.
    Good day to you all!

  2. Nice pictures, I love the frames and perspectives. And above all these wonderful colors of the sunset. Very good.

  3. Those are wonderful photos Duncan. Very creative with you touching the sun!

  4. When I'm visiting somewhere near the shore, I also love to get up early and watch the sunrise too. These shots are absolutely beautiful, Duncan - I think any one of them would make a lovely background image for your blog!

    In a world where we have sky-high buildings branching out from everywhere, I definitely appreciate nature. No matter how many times I go to the same place, say a park or a quiet beach, every experience is different from the last. One thing that remains the same is how at peace I feel. Thanks for sharing these pictures of the gorgeous sunrise, they were really nice to look at.

  5. Looking at the pictures I feel I am almost there myself. Can imagine the quiet and the fresh morning air. I love pictures 3 and 4, nature and humans in harmony. Some great shot you had taken, Duncan.

  6. Hi Duncan,

    I hope you don't mind me getting in touch. I found your details on your website while looking for expat blogs and I hope you might be able to help me with my rather strange request?!

    I am a Producer working on a television show called House Hunters International which follows English speaking expats in their quest to move abroad. I wonder if you or any of your expat contacts might be interested in getting involved?! Please find a little blurb about the show below:

    House Hunters International is a half-hour program currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV) in America.
    The series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying process by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where expats and their real estate agents tour 3 homes.

    At its core, House Hunters International is a travel show concentrating on the idiosyncrasies of the locales and what makes them special and different.

    You can watch some examples of the show here: - London from South Africa (1600 series) - Dubai from Illinois (2000 series)

    Please get in touch if you have any more questions about the show. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Best wishes and many thanks,


    Michelle James

  7. Beautiful, beautiful photos today, Duncan, of that amazing sunrise. What a fantastic spot. I love the panoramic vista, but my favourite today is photo number 2.

    Staying in the nature is one of my pleasure.

  9. Good day Marie! Thanks for coming yesterday!

    Thanks Leovi, I love the golden colours the best!

    Craig, I saw one of my friends on facebook who had done something like that so I had to do my own version of 'touching' the sun!

    Michelle, I'm glad you enjoyed these pictures. I'm certain that one of these sunrise pics will be my next blog background!

    Thanks ordinary malaysian, appreciate your comments and visit..

    Michelle James, that's quite a proposition! I'll get in touch with you soon :)

    Thanks Diane, have a lovely day!

    Marius, thanks for coming along, there is nothing quite as good as nature :)

  10. Those shots are absolutely beautiful. So peaceful. I love the last one.

  11. Thanks Missed Periods, they do bring such a great feeling of peace.
