“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
― Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds.
There’s something so magical about sunsets. You watch the sun go down, see those beautiful colours in the sky, clouds moving about, it’s a wonderful sight. It’s powerful enough to stop you from whatever that you’re doing, just to watch the colours dancing over you. It’s almost like love at first sight; you just fall in love once you look at it. There is nothing that you would want to change about it. What is fascinating is that, for us humans, a simple act of the sun going down seems so magical. It’s simply nature. We’re all so caught up with our lives that we forget to appreciate the little things that make us happy.
I have always been drawn towards sunsets more than sunrises. I like the way the colours start fading after a point. As romantic as it may seem, it does take my breath away for a moment there. I’ve managed to photograph most of the sunsets I’ve watched, I just have to. When I look at it, I realise how happy I was at that moment. I could easily say that I am head over heels for sunsets. Those beautiful red strokes painted all over the yellow sky, the sun slowly going down into the horizon, this is what I wake up for, everyday. I know it won’t last, but I try to make the most of what I get in that moment.
There is so much art around you, I believe sunset is one, and I’m glad that some people capture it in their cameras, for all of us to see and adore the beauty which we couldn’t witness ourselves.
Let’s chase sunsets, one at a time!
