  1. Wow, that magic moment when the sun literally melts into the sea. Fabulous. Truly a moment of reflection.

    • That’s exactly what I felt when I watched it – that the sun was melting into the sea. It usually doesn’t disappear so dramatically, but that day the clouds were just amazing. I was so stunned that I actually had to snap myself out of it and get the camera out :).

  2. Like a beautiful view card!

  3. An amazing picture, and a wonderful poem. I love the composition for this shot and the warm, orange tones.

    • Thanks, Kieran! Thankfully this was one of the compositions that didn’t involve getting my boots covered in mud. I’d never seen such soft, warm colors there – the sky was completely covered in a thin layer of clouds, and that made for amazing effects. I really hope we have another sunset like this one soon!

  4. Very beautiful both the photo and the poem.

  5. such a wonderful thought and what a way to interpret the sunset. With the perfect image to go with! Simply beautiful

    • I just float away in a bubble of emotions and impressions when I watch a sunset, and I’m trying to put them to paper more often. I miss writing poetry!
      I’m really glad you enjoyed the words and the picture :).

  6. I really like your photographs. They are strikingly beautiful and calming for the Spirit and the senses. The combination of poetry and images have always been a favorite form of expression for me.

    I also want to thank you for visiting and liking my post: The Pier and the Flower in Meditation. Please stop by again and subscribe, I would love to share thoughts and comments about art and photography with you.

    • Thanks! I shoot sunsets because they’re the most soothing, relaxing and therapeutic things in the world. If I have to make a hard choice, or if my head and soul are in turmoil, I watch a sunset and it calms me enough to know what to do.
      I’m trying to write more poetry, so I’ll probably be repeating this kind of post in the near future. Stop by again anytime you want!
      I really loved your shot, the combination of pier and flowers in the water was stunning – a mix of some of my favorite things in the world :).

  7. Wooooowww,,,, Amazing…. Love this 🙂

  8. That’s a beautiful shot, and very fitting too…

    • Thanks! I actually wrote the poem after I watched this sunset, so you thinking the picture and the words fit makes me feel I did a good job putting the images to paper :).

  9. Well composed image with a nice, reflective poem.

  10. wow love the sunset 🙂 and where is it?

    • Thank you! It’s Villa del Mar, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Some of the most beautiful sunsets take place there, at least in my opinion.
      Thanks for dropping by my blog!

  11. Gorgeous… both the sunset and the poem. The poem fits so well with the picture too. Both are so simple and yet powerful at the same time 🙂

    • Thanks! That’s exactly what I go for with my poems – simplicity that can speak volumes. It’s good to know that I achieve it!
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  12. Beautiful images with words to match.

  13. Wow – these are all truly spectacular shots!

  14. Gorgeous photos! Your poem is quite touching as well. Change is always so difficult, but when it’s right there’s a beautiful ending, just as with your images. Thank you!

    • Thanks, Tricia! I guess I’ve gotten so used to change that without it I wouldn’t know where to go with my life. And I’ve assumed a positive outlook about it; when change comes, I celebrate the good things it brings and let go of the bad ones. That’s why change is like a beautiful sunset for me.
      Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

  15. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about combining my poetry and photography, and now I’ve stumbled across your blog and wondered why I’ve waiting so long! You are inspiring.

    • Thanks, Laurel! I’ve always said that inspiring others is the best thing that can happen to an artist. Creating and sharing beauty is one of the best things in the world 🙂
      I’m glad you enjoyed my photos and my poems and the way I combine them, and thanks for stopping by the blog!
