I always react strongly to the colors of the sky at sunset and love to capture moments and scenes that really show the power of nature. The significance of this moving landscape on our daily lives and emotions cannot be overestimated and when we now spend much more of our time indoors it is important not to shut it out of our lives to our detriment, as though these things don't matter.
I am concentrated more outside now leaving behind my work….I guess it is time to turn off the laptop. I don’t want to miss what is going on right this moment outside as the sun is setting behind the mountains of the island of Aegina across the sea. Suddenly there is this flock of birds making rounds and rounds disappearing and then coming back several times
The sun is setting right now and instead of a playful sort of orange-yellow color it is almost a dark pink and red and yellow all jumbled together turning to crimson and gold…. I look straight at it and I don’t need to blink or look away. It is quite spectacular. My eyes see a green dot in front of them now and this because I could not resist watching the sun. I know it is bad for the eyes but I don’t see this every day!! It is almost amazing…in a perfect circle it shined! It was beautiful that even a picture wasn’t worth taking because there would be no possible way for the camera to capture the beauty. I am very disappointed with the result of my photos but on this entry I tried to give you the picture of the amazing sunset as better as possible!
