ThenSo I took a taxi for my journey instead. When I was approaching the beach, the sun was rising. That was really exciting. I took a photo by with my cell phone which has 5 mega pixels.

You write very well Ravindar. One thing that I noticed was your use of articles "a" verses "the". Try to remember to include these articles because they are very important. Small but important. Also remember to capitalize "I".

As I have never spoken to you I can not tell you what level of English you have but I can tell you that you have a beginner/intermediate level of writing. Your use of the past continuous is very good. The best way to get a solid intermediate level is to practice writing frequently. Like with this writing workshop. I look forward to correcting your next assignment!
