I’ve seen a lot of great sunrises and sunsets in my time, and I was excited to find out that the islands of Samoa are home to some of the best. Never before have I seen such magical colours in the sky. And the best bit about it, was that they were happening right out the front of the villas we were staying in at Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa on Upolu and Le Lagoto Resort & Spa on Savai’i.
If you know my blog well and follow me on my social channels, you’ll know I don’t edit my photos much at all. While some of these photos might look like they’ve been enhanced, this is pretty much how they came off the camera – the sky actually looked like that almost every morning and every night. It was absolutely serene. So take a look at some of my favourite photos from my incredible week in Samoa from sunrise, to sunset.
