For my first Wanderful Wednesday link-up post, I wanted to reflect on one of my favourite things : Sunsets. They are an event that everyone loves to love.
Something that gives you that moment to reflect on the day, and watch in awe as the sky changes colour and then, black. They look different in different places, at different times, and at different angles. Not one sunset is ever exactly the same. And that couldn’t be any truer than here in Chile.
I see lots more sunsets here in Santiago, than in London as the sky is clearer and less cloudy, which brings with it the magical colours of sunset. I try to watch it most days when I get home from work. I love to admire that surprise that the sunset brings; the colour of that day, the shape of the clouds and the light it produces. These are my favourites from the last six months:
After the rain. A crystal clear sky with every type of cloud and the orange of the sunset just creeping in.The cotton wool clouds turned orange during this one.An irresistible, and most dramatic one in Pupuya, on the beach where we watched our friends get married:
One that lit up the whole sky. I glanced outside one evening and saw this view so quickly grabbed my camera. It was one of those that made me say ‘wow’ aloud.
Another one after the rain, where the sly was cleared of any smog and the sky gently changed colour creating that ‘golden hour’ feeling.What is better than the combination of snowy mountains and an orange sky? This balcony view was total perfection!Even on the most cloudiest of days, the sunset can bring some colour and charm, just like this one did.
In Pichilemu, my friends and I watched as the sky turned the reddest of reds in such a dramatic fashion.
This really was one of my favourites. I took this on my phone after dropping my friend off at the airport, it was the most incredible red colour and loomed below dark, black clouds. It was amazing to drive through it.Pink
The sky turned a beautiful pinky, purple one evening just after arriving in Chile. I stopped my bike to admire this one as it lit up those tiny clouds and illuminated the whole sky.A subtle pink colour that was beautiful all the same. I saw this one from a bus window as I stuck my face to it to see better.Yellow
I have no idea where or when this was taken during these six months but it was unusually unique yellow contrasting against the still blue sky.
In Pupuya, before the sky turned red, it was this shade of yellow. This view was so peaceful and calming, especially against the beach backdrop and the sound of the waves.
Where have you seen beautiful sunsets, and which colours do you love the most?
