Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit

I recall, as a little girl, my Mom calling us all into the living room to look at the sunset and enjoy the beauty together.  I still find myself doing the same …. calling anyone around me to enjoy its’ beauty and say farewell to this day.  Why, I’ve been in conversation with a complete stranger and realized that Mother Nature was creating a painting for us and the show would only last a few moments.  Stop. Take in the beauty. Be present!

And of course, I’m almost never without a camera.  Here’s a few photos I’d like to share with you . . .

sunset1

One of my favorite photos.  No PhotoShop here. A 360 view, in Alaska, of course!

sunset2

California sunset with tree silhouettes.

sunset3

Back in Alaska, watching the tide come in and enjoying the view.

sunset4

Sky on fire!  Amazing!  I watched this sunset until the last bit of color vanished into the darkness.
What a show!

sunset5

I am always amazed at the different shade and hues. No two alike.

sunset6

Sunset during forest fires.  Ominous and eerie.

My habit …. to enjoy the sunset in the present moments it is available to us and be grateful for the beautiful colors, shapes and textures, then, to capture it on film for future moments to remember its’ amazing beauty.

    Are you signed up for Deepak’s new mediation challenge, by the way? I am going to do the first meditation tonight :)
    All the best! x

    • Alaska is incredible. We lived in Southeast where it rains more than it snows and the climate is more temperate. Sometimes it would be raining all day but when the sun set, it would clear up and the day would bless us with sunshine and beautiful colors and hues. I highly recommend everyone experience Alaska in their life time.
