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.
Both Sides Now Lyrics – Joni Mitchell
Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere,
I’ve looked at clouds that way.
Do they look like angel hair?
I must admit that I am not able to take such a good photo.
The picture was taken by my classmate YM Chan who has received proper training on photography.
I am more like the child on the beach ( at Okinawa) looking at the sky in awe.
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.
This is a picture taken on the beach in Estonia.
It was a windy day and the sea was a bit rough.
You can see the wave coming in.
The beach was sandy but not as light color or white as the beaches at home.
Between the sand and the sea is a continuous boundary which is the splash zone.
This is a zone subject to drying and wetting from the sea, more firm to walk on and appear almost reflective in the picture.
There were few people on the beach and I enjoyed being there.
All my days in Langkawi, Malaysia were good days.
The good days there usually consisted of walking along the beach and watching the sunset when the days were coming to an end.
Sitting out on the rocks and meditate was also my favorite pastime, just like the man in my photograph.
