How odd it is

6:57 AM Posted In Edit This 13 Comments »
I do find it rather odd that we do not look at the sunset unless we are on vacation. That is, unless we happen to catch it per chance. I would have never captured this sunset on film if not for this challenge. I walked toward the water hoping some of the color would play off of it, but the sun was setting in the opposite direction. These are homes right on the beach.

Quotes about sunsets:

The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.~Pamela Hansford Johnson

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. ~Crowfoot

When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator. ~Mohandas Gandhi

I can see it all just by closing my eyes - a panorama of life lived each day at its highest tempo; each morning bursting with all the freshness of a new appleblossom; each night a dream of waltzes, music and joyousness; a Paradise on earth destined to perish like a butterfly at sunset.
~Erich von Stroheim
