I have probably mentioned on multiple occasions by now that I am by no means a morning person, so I’m going to have to say that I am one hundred percent a sunset kind of gal.

I took the picture above at Captree State Park last year, and I seriously love this picture so much. It is definitely one of my two favorite pictures I have ever taken. I love how the sky can be so many colors at one time, all because the sun is at a certain point in the sky.

On the day I took this picture, I was with my best friend, Jeanette, and I remember both of us being in awe of the way the sky looked. Neither of us took our time before taking our phones out to snap pictures of the scene—that’s how beautiful it truly was.

The sky looked so crazy, but we felt so at ease with what was in front of us. You know how blissful it is to see something so naturally beautiful right in front of you? Nobody made it look that way; it just looked like that all on its own. All we had to do was look at it.

Sunsets have always brought me at ease, especially near water. I don’t know if it’s the salty air or the colors surrounding you, but just being in that kind of atmosphere makes you feel serene. So serene, that you want time to stop. You don’t want to move, and you don’t want the sky to change.

Until it does, and then you fall in love with it all over again.

Prompt: Do you prefer a sunrise or a sunset? Post a picture and talk about it.

One thought on “Sunsets

  1. I once saw a sunrise on the beach once.

    At my school, I have seen sunsets a lot. My school has a lot of sunsets. If you scroll through my posts, which will take a while, you will find posts, which have pictures of sunsets at my school. At Gardner Webb whenever I see a sunset, it is God’s way of remaining me that Gardner Webb was where I am meant to be for college and it is God’s way of telling me I will thrive through the school years.
