Photo Meme - My Sundown!

B J Ayers

Out over the ocean, and it’s waves it lay,
A magnificent orange sphere, as it drops to the sea,
With spears descending from within the fire,
The magnificent beauty of the sunset each day,

An immanent display, for the world to share,
As it seeps below horizons, to end the day,
Only to share light, so that others may see,
The beauty of the sunset for all who care,

Up above the clouds, that shadow the light,
The rain, the snow, and the elements that blind,
That magnificent glow, that Brightens our world,
Another sunset awaits, just to share its light.

I am posting another meme from Lovelyn in her Show me your sunset or sunrise photo tag.

I would have loved to work on both sunset and sunrise but I realized that there's no sunrise photo in my collection as of yet and starting one would entail leaving bed at the crack of dawn. In my mind though, the sunrise view on our way to Sagada in 2005 still remains very vivid. If only I can paint! Unfortunately, we didn't take any picture thinking we can do it on our way back, bad decision.

Anyway, getting back to the meme, the rules are as simple as posting photos you've taken, telling where and when the photos were taken and describing your feelings while watching/shooting the view.

The 1st and 2nd photos were taken in Tamsui Riverpark, a place we frequently hang around during weekends, last Sunday. Jade was on her afternoon nap so I left her and hubby in the coffeeshop. We intentionally waited for the sunset. Watching it gave me a soothing and serene feeling like any sunset views have always affected me.

The 3rd photo was taken in Sanzhi beachside on April 2006. Our company had several days break for the summer outing. Since we weren't comfortable to bring Jade along on long local trips, we came out with our own tour plan. This photo including details of how I felt at that time can be found in my post Reflection.

As for the last photo, sorry but I couldn't find one plain sunset photo, either me or hubby is in the pictures. Having him on this photo is one evidence that I shot it :) This was taken in the famous Boracay beach on April 2005 - twas our honeymoon trip. I was amazed at the sight of sunset here. Watching it with the splashes of water on the background gave a natural high! Yes, sunset has always given me a feeling of natural high!

Now since this is a meme, I have to pass it to other blogger friends out there who I hope can find some time to work on it. Jhune, Hannah, Sha, Ruel and Mari, please take it from here that you've been officially tagged.

A melancholy looking sunset but still a sunset regardless.

I almost missed this post. Thanks for doing the tag Jane!

That Sagada sunrise could have been nice. Bet even the sunrise from your place in Acop.
