Q1. Do you prefer sunrises or sunsets? Why? #BeachChat

Q4. Give one reason why beach sunrises/sunsets are more special than anywhere else? #BeachChat

By @travelloriA4. Beach sunsets are so special because its only time in my life I slow down to actually just enjoy the moment. #beachchat
By @LouHammondPRA4. Beach sunsets are a great way to unwind and relax after a fun-filled day of adventure! #beachchat
By @travelandshopA4 For me it’s all about the reflections – on life and in the water #beachchat


Q5. What`s a good tip to take better photos of sunrises/sunsets? #BeachChat

By @MexCharA5 Try to combine it with an object in the front (statue, a palm, a beer). The result will be magical #BeachChat
By @StayLuxuriousA5. I might say, focus on the colors of the sky, not the sun itself…. plenty of amazing sunset images in the afterglow #beachchat
By @TravelLatteA5. Take the camera off of “auto”. You can do it! #beachchat
By @TWH_AntiguaA5. I’ve found to simply just set the camera to continuous and just take multiple shots and I ususally get my best images #beachchat


Q6. What`s your favorite app on your phone you use for sunrise/sunset photos? #BeachChat

By @flyingwithfish: A6. For an iPhone @Filterstorm, iPhone, Snapseed are all quality , & powerful, editing apps. Learn to use them for all iPhone pix #beachchat
By @1step2theleftA.6. It depends. If cloudy, I like ProHDR. If the sky is clean, I play around with Camera+ #BeachChat


Q7. Where did you experience your most romantic sunrise/sunset? #BeachChat

By  @MiraCristineA7. Honeymoon in Mexico #beachchat



Q8. Which beach destination would you recommend for the best sunrises/sunsets and why? #BeachChat

By @KuoniTravelUKA8: so many to choose from but personally #Caribbean has stunning sunsets especially in Negril #beachchat
By @batsuzeA8. #Anguilla because it has the most stunning swimming pool clear water, powdery beaches – few tourists. #BeachChat
By @CharlesMcCoolA8. Outer Banks, North Carolina has wonderful sunrises. Pacific Grove, California a nice place for sunsets. Key West has both. #beachchat
