Take my breath away

I don't know if I'm a frustrated poet or just a freak of nature. Iam a big fan of sunrises and sunsets. Particularly, sunsets. I somehow appreciate the fact that our Creator puts on this show of nature everyday, unfailingly, and yet not a lot of us notice this breathtaking show that plays with or without an audience.I  was guilty of this for so many years and the past few years, I've been making amends.I 'm very happy to share with my friends and readers this wonderful moment before the sun set and the Pyro Olympics commenced yesterday. Funny that my most favorite capture of the day happened before the event I planned to shoot.

thanks arlene. hmmm, makes me a bit reassured about being a little normal, hahaha. apart from photographers, i guess not a lot of people would be willing to forego sleep for a glimpse of the eternal in sunrises and sunsets

i am also fascinated with the stars and objects from the deep space kaya minsan (especially when there is a big sky event like meteor showers) i wake up at dawn just to gaze up and look at them - to the amazement of our neighbors and my family.

these wonderful shows of nature are truly humbling experiences. make us realize how small we are and yet God knows each one of us.

same here arlene, it's a humbling experience to watch these nature displays and not walk away with a sense of awe and wonder of the hand of the Creator. and sunrises and sunsets are ones of the few things in life that are still free of charge, no admission fee :-)

Awesome oggie! i really love this shot. my favorite time, and sunrises too. pero sunset para sa akin somehow makes u feel grateful kasi another day has gone by and we are still alive (drama ba?) bakti buhay ka pa! hahah naku... pero kidding aside... hopeless romantic ako kpag sunset na pinag uusapan. Ganda nito grabe. I wish i was able to join u guys there, di ko nakita ang fellowship of fires :(
