For today’s Sky Watch I bring you the Maldivian sunsets with silhouettes. Being on a beach at sunset is a beautiful experience, in Maldives doubly so. You can gaze into the golden water or watch the waves at play. On the day I clicked pictures, there was a gentle breeze as well. The heat had substantially subsided. Whatever the sun touched it turned golden. The sky was putting up a show!
Some of the sky was reflected in the water too! I had long ago discarded my footwear. The sand felt nice beneath my feet. I had let my hair down, allowing the breeze play with it. The coconut trees were gently swaying.
However, the sun was the star of the ceremony, all eyes on the beach were glued to it. There was a tussle going on between the sun and the clouds. The sun wanted to retire for the day in all its glory, the clouds were determined to be a part of the play too.
And all that I wrote above was wrong. It may actually have been like that. But my thought process was more like this!
I really wish for one sunset I could leave the camera behind and enjoy it like I thought others were enjoying it. But I am equally sure if I ended up without a camera my dominant thought would be to kick myself again!
This post is part of Skywatch Friday, it is through them I learned to romance the skies.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
