I mentioned in my previous post that I spent almost a quarter of an hour watching the sun set at Action Geckos’ beachfront. I was so into the moment that I had over 50 photos from this experience. In this post are my favorites.
I started camping out by the beachfront when I started seeing the skyline turn yellow orange.
It was that dramatic shade of red orange that from where I sat, it looked like the horizon was afire.
As I looked at the beauty of the setting sun before me, I thought of how no matter how many sunrises or sunsets I see, I never get tired of looking at either as I find them so beautiful!
At some points, I stopped taking photos and just enjoyed the stunning views while the crashing waves tempted to lull me to sleep.
Moments like this make me recall the lyrics to a Snow Patrol song. It says, “If I lay here, if I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world?”
Being a witness to views like this sure made me forget the world I left behind. For a time, I wasn’t a career woman with a never-ending to-do-list to accomplish. I was just the wide-eyed wanderer with no care in the world.
Eventually, the skyline turned red and the sun hid itself among the now-deep purple clouds.
