A Photo A Week Challenge with the topic: Rise/Set

Do you ever watch the sunset
And just sit and think about things
Just you and the sky and darkness
Giving your thoughts some wings

Perhaps you’ve got some troubles
And don’t know what to do
Or you just plain need to get away
To spend a little time with you

Sunset beauty makes you feel as though
Your life has meaning after all
To see a sight so extraordinary
Makes you feel capable, strong and tall

It’s funny how flashes of color
Like a sunset or sunrise can inspire
It can calm your inner self a bit
It’s a scene you can never tire

The serenity gives you a chance
To put things in perspective
Life can be overwhelming at times
And a sunset can be reflective

So when the sky lights up next time
Let your gaze do some drinking
Soak up all the amazing sights
And do some sunset thinking!


  1. Gorgeous! I’m so glad I was able to be there to enjoy them with you.

  2. Those photos are just wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing them!

  3. Lovely pictures and beautiful choice of words to go with them!

  4. Beautiful photos!! I love witnessing the sunset (and sunrise on those rare occasions I’m awake early enough). It slows down the world and allows you to breath in the beauty of the world that is not alway visible during the day. We can always maintain that beauty in our hearts though through mindfulness. Thank you for sharing!
