...:::Taking the Sun from the Day:::...

Silhouetted Sunset
View Large On Black

Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
~Benjamin Disraeli~

I am in the most severe state of yearning to feel the way I did - I felt so free.
This photo gives me such a sense of peace. I remember that tranquil breeze. And how we were supplied with a colorful conclusion to a flawlessly spectacular day.
We caught this scene at the tail-end of an action packed day. It was so serene, and windy, but still magnificent. It makes my heart ache and smile all at the same time.

More to come......


  1. i so enjoy the pics from your trip (and i´m looking for more to come:)) - this one shows such a special mood! i also liked that yurt, must have been a wonderful experience...

  2. A very sensual image.
    I can feel the cool breeze coming off the water and watch the warmth of the day disappear westward across the Pacific.
    Thank you for the brief journey to another place and time.

  10. Nice photo to frame in wide angle, and display it in the living room just above a couch. The view has a mystical touch and yet romantic in a sense.

  11. 1218: haha, thank you :o)

    Mac: That's a great idea, maybe above the TV though since we have windows behind our couch.
