Ailsa from Where’s my Backpack? and host of the Travel Theme has chosen ‘Sunset’ as this weeks subject. I first saw it on Mahdu’s sunset post from The Urge to Wander and a comment struck a chord with me – no matter where in the world we might be we all watch the same sun as it sets. It’s inspired me to join in this weeks theme with some sunset shots from my own travels.
I find it hypnotic to watch as the sun dips beneath the horizon and will never tire of a beautiful sunset; a time to pause and reflect on the beauty of our world. Here are some of my favourite shots which I hope capture that magical moment.
And finally a sunset from home taken in May this year. It’s a bit grainy as it was taken on a compact and I’ve zoomed in and cropped hard but I like the misty feel of it – for some reason the sun was enormous that evening.
