Sunrise over the rice terraces

Got up at 4.45 this morning to see the sunrise, although I am always a bit wary of these early, weather dependent starts.
It was really cold outside and I did think 'why are we doing this?' for a couple of minutes. It was pitch black when we arrived at the viewpoint, but the sky was full of stars and we could hear the sound of thousands of cockerells crowing all across the mountains.
After a few minutes the peace was shattered by three very loud Filipino ladies. We gradually joined in with their chatter and once they started talking novelty photos, we were part of their gang.
Lovely sunrise as well.
