Summer Sunset

Summer Sunset

A summer sunset
A moment of pure beauty
In an ugly world

I took this photo this evening from our balcony, just as the sun began to set. It was a spectacular sunset, with the entire sky seeming to catch fire for many minutes, before gradually fading away.

After receiving some upsetting news today, it was nice to end the day with a sight of such beauty and grace. It’s a reminder that, even in your darkest moments, beauty is never that far away. The world really can take your breath away sometimes.

    1. Hi, thanks, I’m glad you liked the photo! It’s an HDR photo, so it’s got a unique kind of look to it, but I really like it, particularly for sunsets. I think it helps to capture the range of the scene closer to how I really saw it.

      I guess I always try to see the beauty in things, even in dark moments… sometimes I think it’s in the darkest times that beauty and true friendship is truly revealed to you and in a way, that’s how I was feeling when I wrote the haiqua. I think in the end, if you can keep hope in your heart, even in darkness, then nothing can hold you down for long, and I try to stay true to that – I don’t always succeed but it’s a something to aim for at least! 😉

      Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comment.
