Sunsets may just be the most beautiful display nature puts on...ever. And the fact that they happen every day (well, some days if you live in the UK), I find that to be pretty magical! Last year, in the depths of Winter, I found myself really missing Sunset. We were plunged into an abyss of grey cloud, and I vowed to myself that I would make the most of sunsets the followed.
Well, guess what? I didn't really honour my vow. Months went by, and although it wasn't a total failure, I definitely didn't get out to enjoy enough sunsets.
So when we found ourselves living at Tom's parents house for a few weeks while our bathroom was being renovated, I decided the finally make the most of being closer to the North coast, and enjoying some more sunsets.
So, these images are a result of that night. The sun had been out all day, I had nothing planned for the evening, and Gwithian beach was only a short drive away. I messaged Anna, and a few hours later we were at the beach, enjoying an absolutely stunning sunset.
It's safe to say that these evenings when I make an effort to do something like this, I come away from it feeling totally invigorated. I don't know why I find it so easy to put stuff like this off, but I do, and I find myself getting into a rut of sorts.
Anna and I both agreed that we needed to experience more sunsets, and now that they are easier to access (ie. the sun sets much earlier in the day) there really is no excuse on a sunny day to NOT go and see a sunset.
What I need to tackle next? Photographing the stars. You may or may not remember some images I did over a year ago of the night sky, and I love them SO much. I'm obsessed with stars, and the cosmos, but I'm also a complete homebody who likes to get into bed early... not a very good combo. But I'm going to make a much bigger effort to get out there on clear nights, and photograph the night sky.
Please hold me accountable to that!
