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.
At the end of the day, sunset slows me down and reminds me of the many things past, present and future.
And it’s romantic—even if you’re alone.
…..because watching it is just like watching your lover’s eyes expressing his love like it’s on fire.
It’s as magical as the first time you laid your eyes on him.
Sunset, too, gives you an opportunity to reflect on what you are and what you want to be.
Sunset is a great equalizer. People from all walks of life see it for free—but maybe, in different perspectives.
When nature is bathed in golden glow….
…we all heave a sigh for its breathtaking beauty.
…..we all feel high for the happiness it gives us.
…..we are all damn dramatic when we associate such happiness with someone.
…..we all become nostalgic when we know that, in the other side of the world, someone we know is watching its sunrise.
……and most of all, we see sunset as the journey of our own lives.
The sun rises. The sun sets.
A man rises. A man falls.
That’s why sunsets are meant to be beautiful…..
…..because they remind us that rain or shine…..
…..life goes on.
So, the next time you see a sunset, be grateful that your day has just ended….
…..because for others, it has just began.
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.
