The Magic Of A Sunset

sunset on SyltSunsets are magical (at least for me, that is). No matter where I manage to see them they are always fantastic to watch. Although it could be said that it is the same stuff every night I find each sunset to be a unique experience.

In the mountains, on the beach, in a city park with the skyline in the background, on a yacht while anchoring, in front of a tent camping in the middle of nowhere – sunsets are everywhere. My photographic skills do not really allow me (yet) to capture each one the same or even similar to what my eyes are actually seeing, but I am getting there (I hope).

The day is coming to an end, activities – not only those of humans – are either slowing down or just about to start. All living creatures are preparing for the night, some to rest, others to hunt.

Maybe it is because I love water and the sea in general, maybe it is because sailing while the sun goes down is the start of a possibly very exciting night – and the chance of a magnificent sunrise. Whatever the reason might be, I love them.

What a great way to finish a weekend – and she can do that every night, this is basically the end of her garden… how good can it get?
