Sunset at Cyprus Lake

Watching sunset is a hobby that becomes a habit every time I visit a place. I never get tired of it and it never gets old.

The sunset at Cyprus Lake wasn’t the most impressive I’ve seen but there’s enough fire in it that ignited my thoughts and calmed my tired body from hiking—to pause, admire and be mesmerized.

Sunset is a great equalizer. People from all walks of life see it for free—but maybe, in different perspectives.

These photos are unfiltered and sans photoshop. A beauty like this doesn’t need either of that.


While watching the sunset at Cyprus Lake, this snake suddenly slithered out from the bottom of the rocks—but he behaved well. Maybe, he knew I was alone and thought I needed some company.

Or, maybe, just like me, he loves sunsets, too.
