Sunsets and Shadow Shot Sunday

This week really flew by for me. Did it fly by for anyone else? Maybe it's because I had last Monday off for the National holiday.

I spend most of my free time in my studio. The patio windows of my 8th floor apartment face south. In winter, the room is warm as long as the sun is out. On Tuesday, I happened to glance out the window to see a beautiful sunset effect.

I can't really see the horizon in the west, so it was the setting sun's colors on the clouds rather than the actual sunset. The skyline was dotted by buildings, advertisements, train lines and antennas. Beauty is where we look for it.

I agree, beauty is in the sunset, the shadows and the mists...all that surrounds us is in the beauty of the eye that beholds it.

Beautiful! I especially love the softness of the first one.

The week flew by for me also. I was happy about that as it was my first week back at work after holidays. Nothing worse than the first week back draaaaging ever so slowly ;)

What nature can give us human is to appreciate it's beauty.

One of my hobby is watching the sun set & sunrises. I can sit there just to watch the sky closes & opens till I close my eyes to dream my unreachable dreams.

Thanks for sharing the wonder I love most.

I will probably do a painting based on this photo. And I am definitely going to look up at the sky more often:)
