Fire in the sky!

A walk into the sunset ...

A walk into the sunset (well, almost :D)

As temperatures come down, sunsets seem to get intense. Today was one of those days: a slight nip in the air and we had to head seawards to catch the sunset. It was about time we hit the beach anyways, considering that we have been cooped inside for too long. As you can see, we were not disappointed. The sun on its way out created such fiery reflections in the waters and the skies that almost everyone stopped and watched as sea slowly consumed the glowing ball.

A Florida Sunset

I like the way you expressed the sun going down...the sea comsuming the fiery ball. What a gorgeous sunset. I haven't seen any pretty ones here yet. I think we are too far down in the flatter area.
I'm so glad you took some time out for yourselves today. It does a body good.

With the going down of the sun, joy comes into the heart.

Beautiful photos.

joy said...

That is so beautiful. Sunsets never fail to be gorgeous.

Moi,
that's dazzling...beautiful!!

Have a wonderful day ahead!


(Replying on Ravi Shankar post -

first of all thanks a lot for that blog link...I must say he has got an exceptional talent of photography...it is such a phenomenal blog n I already added it to my favorites :)

Apart, talking about Ravi Shankar, yes....he is a great persona in Indian classical and on that eve, the way he was playing at the age of 87, anyone would have felt exquisite pleasure by seeing his intensified performance. I think that is why Harrison called him ‘the music’. I have seen ray’s pather panchali (and shataranj ke khiladi) long time back, but never knew it has got background score by Ravi Shankar till you mentioned here.
About Anoushka....she sound very different from her father...I guess, she enjoy creating fusions and may be that's why I just love the way she play. I do have her ‘rebirth’ track and you can find more here-

Beautiful shots, Moi. Did you get a new camera? That sinking-into-the-sea shot looks like you used a very long lens.

Watching the sun being consumed is such a great event for people to gather around with all attention focused. Gorgeous pictures.

bluemountainmama said...

as much as i love my mountains, there is nothing quite as romantic as sunset at the ocean....

you make me want to be there with these shots! so glad to know you are 'out' and enjoying yourself.....

Moi said...

Hey Nikon, No i am still with the good ol' Kodak :)

could be coz i used almost the maximum zoom to catch this shot from where I was on the beach.

Thank you all, for getting here to admire the sunset in my part of the world...... :)

Andrée said...

in the 2nd photo, i enjoy the people in the foreground. the colors are magnificent. are many of your sunsets this stunning? awesome!

Annie said...

That's my absolute favorite color in the second photo. I'd have loved being there on that beach to see that sunset.

Ash said...

Gorgeous sunset!

evlahos said...

fantastic sunsets. well done

Kalyan said...

WoW...some beautifully captured & composed shots with lovely lighting & the colours...Excellent sunset pics!

ToOothlEss WOndeR! said...

question: Do you think that the water in the sea is higher than the land?
I was sitting at the beach the other day when i noticed.

I like the second picture for the mood of it. The people, the sense of displaced time, and the life in the picture.

Am back at work. :(

This means to talk to the heart, to the romantic part that each of us sometimes forgetful to possess..

Mark said...

Hi Moi,
I just love it when you watch a sunset with other people how when it has gone down everyone walks away with a smile on their face.

Through to the next round, going to be tight.

Cheers Mark

Mike said...

RUTH said...

I especially love that last shot. We've had some great sunsets but sadly the other houses are in the way :o)

Kate said...

Both of these photos are outstanding sunset pictures. It certainly does look like fire in the sky, but one that inspires awe rather than fear. Great job!

JAM said...

Both of these are magnificent. Truly beautiful.

I'm loving the "cool" weather on this side of the state too.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Hello Moi,
Just stopped by to say hello and wish you well and your family.
I see you have traveld some more.
The pitures are great as always...

Take Care,

William..... :)

As I looked at the lovely sunset photos - I thought of Florida being the "Orange" state. This Florida sunset photo almost looks as if an orange is setting - not to mention how orange the sky and water is. It's really lovely. Looks like the people are watching the end of a movie. If credits ran afterwards it would read "Starring - The Sun, Sea, and Sky"

Ruth said...

Too bad about your cancelled trip to Turkey way back when. Moi, if you want to see a more detailed post about the dervishes, I did one at my other blog. I'll sign in under that one, so you can just click on my name, and then go to Synchronizing.
