I took a walk late one afternoon down to the spit and just sat and watched the sun go down.
The birds were flying into their roost for the night and it’s a magical time.
Somewhere between day and night is twilight and the sun is coming down to meet the earth.
Or at least that is what it looks like from my perspective.
Scientists have a whole other explanation.
Everything is quiet here and it’s like the earth slowed down for a moment in time.
Slowed to the rotation of the earth’s time.
It’s amazing just to sit and watch the earth rotate.
To see the blue sky of day, slowly dissolve into a golden sunset and then into the midnight blue of night.
To be able to capture the moment when the ocean looks like a golden pond as it reflects the sky makes for the end of a perfect day.
I walk home slowly as the sun eases its way below the horizon and reflect on just how amazing the world we live on can changes its colours.
Like a chameleon, it changes its hues to match the time of day with each one being different.
As no snowflake is ever the same, so is the earth’s sunsets.
And I’m so glad I got to capture this one.
