Sunrise/sunset photos from my travels

I loved to draw when I was a kid, and whenever I was asked to draw something, it is almost always a scene of the sun setting (or rising depending on one’s perspective), with its light reflected by the sea.

Now that I am older, I am still awed by its beauty, but now I capture it using a camera.

There is something magical about the sunset/sunrise that draws me into it. Perhaps it’s the burst of colors that spreads throughout the sky and the fact that as it sets/rises, you’ll never really know what colors will turn up every time. Sometimes it’s fiery red, sometimes it’s sweet pink, or orange, or just plain yellow, or bluish purple, or even various combinations of these. Each time is always different experience.  As the battle between light and darkness ensues, one can’t help but be mesmerized by the picturesque view that is created by this event.

Over the years, I was able to capture sunrise and sunset moments from my travels. Here are some of my favorites.
