The setting sun reminds me more than anything that the present moment is Now.
In a couple of minutes time, the sun will have sunk below the horizon.
In 15 minutes, the sky will have darkened and the day will be coming to a close.
The photo was taken in Langkawi, Malaysia. It reminded me so strongly that I shouldn’t be chasing sunset anymore and should be back at the hotel for dinner.
This week’s photo challenge is Trio.
Not a cloud was in sight.
No one really wanted to be under the sun; it was like 40 degrees Celsius, even this beach at Langkawi was deserted.
I was hesitating whether I should walk all the way to the beach and take this photo.
However, the sky, the water and the palm trees were so captivating.
The palms, especially, were like three ladies dancing on the beach, swaying in the wind.
This picture was therefore taken with a lot of sweat ( luckily no tears!)
My ideal place of a Happy Place is a place with blue sky, beach with fine white sand and a blue sea.
This is something easily tenable at Langkawi, Malaysia.
Better still, here are some boats ready for anyone who enjoy sea sports!
This week’s DP photo challenge is Happy Place.
Langkawi, Malaysia has always been my favorite destination for travels.
Happiness is lazing on the beach or wading to the near shore islands when the tide is out.
We took the cable car to the top of the hill in Langkawi, Malaysia.
From there we have a panoramic view of the mountains and the blue ocean.
There is a cable stayed footbridge which takes you from one side of the mountain to another.
The cable stayed bridge has only one middle pier support off the mountains.
Standing on the footbridge, gazing out, all you have beneath you is the bridge deck and hundred feet of air before you reached the ground below.
You understand that is a big air gap under you!
The views are just beautiful in Langkawi, Malaysia.
As we strolled on the seaside boardwalk, we didn’t know what is around the corner.
The sunset was again ephemeral.
We ended up chasing the sunset – getting as far West as we possibly can; until the sun sunk below the horizon.
You can say this is ephemeral as the sun was exerting its last rays of light.
Equally, you can say this is timeless – as it has forever existed in my brain from that moment on.
