Sunsets Around the World!!

While I was standing on my terrace yesterday and observing the sun go down, I realized I have experienced so many beautiful sunsets across the world. And then I felt I should share some of those amazing sunsets and my experiences with you all. Well, have you ever wondered why is it that when our eyes fix onto the deep colors of the setting sun we’re transported to some other world? Why we keep gazing it till the last moment? What is so beautiful and magical about it? I am sure everyone agrees that sunsets have the power to stop just about anyone in their tracks and leave them overwhelmed with the beauty of mother nature. I love watching sunsets and capturing them in my camera, which gives me an opportunity to let you all feel the beauty of sunset through my lens.

One of the most incredible sunsets was of Honduras, in Central America. I was on ship that time and we had a chance to visit this part of world. I was just lying down in my room, when suddenly I felt like going out on deck. And there to my surprise, as soon I opened the door my mouth fell open. Blue Ocean, red sky, hills, tall palm tress along the coastline and a blazing sun setting in between those hills. I ran to my room to get my camera and capture this moment forever. Whenever I see pictures of that sunset, I feel so blessed and lucky to be able to witness sunset of Honduras.

Sunset in backwaters of Alleppey, Kerala in India is still alive in my mind and my heart. We were on houseboat, anchored beside paddy fields in Vembanad Lake. Sitting on upper deck we were enjoying our evening coffee and the gorgeous sunset. Orange sky, tall coconut tress, birds flying, water all around and the slowly setting sun left us speechless. It was the most beautiful and romantic evening ever.

There is something so different and unique about watching a sunset standing near a ocean, waves crashing at a distance, salty breeze hitting your face and sand settling down under your feet. I had this experience at Bentota, Srilanka and believe me it was one of the most lovely experiences of my life. I would love to go to this place again and watch the sun setting down below the horizon.

While on our trip to Venice, we visited islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. It was a fun trip and on our way back on a boat to Venice, I had a chance to feel the passionate sunset of Italy. What made it even more special was that it was our honeymoon trip and there could be nothing more romantic than this.

Sunset at Dubai Creek was out of the world. While sailing on cruise on this salty creek, watching sunset was totally different. It’s a busy creek, with so many small and big boats continuously sailing with passengers and tourists. Huge buildings and towers surround creek on both the sides and here you will witness the sun going down behind these man made structures. There are no hills and oceans and palms, but this sunset is the most stunning sunset I have ever seen.

On our visit to Rome, I have this wonderful memory about sunset. We were on the top of Pincio, walking slowly hands in hands and enjoying the cold winter evening. Though it was not as fancy as all other sunsets, but the splendor of it took my heart away. As the sun started setting in, sky went all blue, with beautiful vintage houses and buildings all around and lights coming up slowly. It was so hypnotic.

While on ship on our way to Singapore, another lovely sunset came along. It was like it was sinking in the ocean, in the endless blue waters and I watched it going down, slowly, leaving a streak of red and orange in the sky.

Sunset point in Mount Abu is very famous and by the end of day people flock in from various places just to see the beauty of setting sun. Sitting on top of a hill and gazing sun going down in the valley, in between the clouds was really therapeutic. It makes you forget all the stress, leaving you refreshed and perplexed with beauty of Mother Nature. Also in Udaipur sunset was magical behind Fatehsagar lake.

Sunset by the Denwa river is Madhai, near Hoshangabad in MP is equally picturesque. Satpura ranges in view and flowing water makes it one of the most exquisite experience ever.

And one of my very favorite and the most memorable one is the sunset in Poovar Island of Kerala, India. While standing on the balcony of my floating cottage, I was trying to soak in all the magnificence and warmth setting sun was oozing. Peaceful backwaters, cold wind, orange sky and such a beautiful view to die for. What else you need!! It was the best and most gripping sunset I have ever seen.

This collection of glowing hues, vibrant sky and cottony clouds are some of the most wonderful memories of my life. These are not just images but precious treasures of my life that I love most. Whether it’s walking down the lane to my home or wandering the sands of an exotic beach, I never miss a chance to see and capture sunsets. I feel sunsets are just like love at first sight, which leaves you breathless, speechless and bring time to a still. You wonder how interesting and beautiful things nature has given us. I witnessed so many sunsets across the world, and every time I see another one I feel like I am seeing it for the first time. It leaves me mesmerized, full of positivity and energy.

As the famous saying goes, ‘Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too.’ I really feel it’s a promise of a beginning of a new day. As the sun sets in, it makes us realize about the endless opportunities tomorrow holds. That it’s not the end and it will be again a brighter day tomorrow.
