Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

Sunday evenings, time for some sunset thinking.

Sunday evenings are to myself the end of another week, they mark a time to clear your mind. To think about a new week and to define the end of the last, what-ever happened last week (good or bad) has gone.

It time for some ……..

Sunset Thinking

Do you ever watch the sunset
And just sit and think about things
Just you and the sky and darkness
Giving your thoughts some wings

Perhaps you’ve got some troubles
And don’t know what to do
Or you just plain need to get away
To spend a little time with you

Sunset beauty makes you feel as though
Your life has meaning after all
To see a sight so extraordinary
Makes you feel capable, strong and tall

It’s funny how flashes of color
Like a sunset or sunrise can inspire
It can calm your inner self a bit
It’s a scene you can never tire

The serenity gives you a chance
To put things in perspective
Life can be overwhelming at times
And a sunset can be reflective

So when the sky lights up next time
Let your gaze do some drinking
Soak up all the amazing sights
And do some sunset thinking!

    Hi Nigel. This is an amazing shot! I love the rays, the silhouetted trees and grasses and how the light dances across the ripples.

    Beautiful image, Nigel.
    I think it all the more appealing because it has soft colours and delicate light. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the bright orange & red sunsets that photographers shoot. I like the softer pinks and mauves.

    Audible gasp! Stunning photo Nigel. Your own words in the intro are perfect. The poem is a bonus, but sometimes maybe trust that your own words are enough, and perfectly placed with your own amazing images. : ))
