About Break of Dawn:

There is something almost magical about sunrise, in my opinion.

I love to watch the sunrise. It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer, if I have a place in mind I would make an effort to be there to watch the day as it begins.

Malham is a small village in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in England. It is known for Malham Cove, a limestone cliff where a scene from one of the Harry Potter movies was filmed. It was April, the weather had already started to warm up but somehow the temperature dipped for a few days.

It wasn't snow but just icy frost. I stood there waited for the sun while my toes were starting to freeze despite wearing wool socks and walking boots. It started with a diffused light blue. As the sun peeked through the horizon, the sky quickly lit up.

The first light of the day. I felt alive and blessed to be there. My mind was a complete blank yet I felt so tranquil and free at the same time. It was like a moth to a flame.

I continued to stare at the light when I suddenly felt a hint of warmth on my face...

About Yaopey:

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art. 

Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
