Travel theme – Sunset

23 Aug

This week the travel theme at Where’s my Backpack is “Sunset.”  I chose the two photos here from our trip to Boracay this year from Chinese New Year.  I had already published a post on this same topic (click here to see the other shots which I published on Valentine’s Day), but going back through our photos there were so many unique sunsets that I chose two more.

Each night seeing the sun set on White Beach was magical.  Looking at the photos makes me want to go back!

The day that Ailsa published the post I walked out into a Shanghai night where the clouds were tinged with pink as the sun started slowly moved through the sky, but I didn’t have my camera.  Some sunsets are best seen with your heart instead of through a lens. Do you have any special sunsets?

    I like the Moon in this scene.

      Yes – it adds another dimension to “sun set” – the opposite – “moon rise.”

      Thanks for the comment.

    Beautiful! I love sunsets. They are the best time of the day!

      Thank you – I enjoy them too, but best time – there are a lot of others that I enjoy too.

      Send me a link to your photos. I need more inspiration – it’s been 6 months since the beach for me!

    Lovely photos, gkm2011, and I adore your sentiment ‘some sunsets are best seen with your heart ‘ – I couldn’t agree more! xxx Ailsa

    The moon peeking through those beautiful blue
    skies is breathtaking,

      Yes – when we’re privileged to see the moon it makes it even more special. Thanks for the comment!

      Thanks – something about the way the colors change makes it impossible to look away.
