I still watch a lot more sunsets than sunrises but then I do not see that changing soon! And sometimes I do get to see sheer magic, as only nature can perform. Krabi Skies in Thailand are beautiful any time of the day. It can become an enchantress at the sunset if it decides to do so!
I start with this image of pool side at Phulay Bay which is a Ritz Carlton Reserve. Though not in the picture but a little away was the sea waiting for all the glorious colors that would start appearing in the sky in a little while!
But as I was staying with Sofitel Krabi I spent a lot more time on Klong Muang Beach which is right across the road from the resort. Of the two days that I spent at Krabi, only on one evening I had time to stand on the beach and watch the sunset. I click pictures more than . This was one of the tripod days. I have used a lot of zoom mounting the camera on the tripod to click this picture.
Everyday when I can stand and gaze the setting sun, I wish for a little magic. But off late I got too many watery sunsets. However, Krabi skies were kind to me, they went ablaze at sunset. There was a pier a little ahead which would have made for such a beautiful picture. But I could not easily approach it from the beach and time was running out, I had to start from the hotel at 7.00 pm for dinner in the town Ao Nang. However, I lingered on till I can, after all who can walk away from such a sky, to click a few more pictures.
The drama continued as the sun went down. There were many Sofitel guests on the beach and a few of them moved to where I was clicking pictures. One of them said remarked, “is it not a special one?” I entirely agreed with him that the sunset was indeed magical.
I did not wish to leave the beach but I hate being late for appointments so with an effort I walked away from the sunset even though I knew, had I stayed it would continue to enthrall me for some more time!
