Sunsets in life means to rest but in earth it means a hope for another beautiful day @armentor


So true. One of my favorite sunset quote is quite appropriate: "Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Oh, what a beautiful set of photos these are! Admittedly, the second one is the one I am drawn to, the colors are warm and the reflective nature has such a calming effect on the whole shot.

Superb photography. Thank you!


Thank you. Mother Nature helped a lot! It's been an interesting summer here with much heat and abnormally high humidly, which has blessed us with these unseasonable sunsets. More typical of October and November.

My favorite one is with the surf breaking!


Yes. Agree. I was going back and forth on which to highlight. The light off the breaks just makes you feel you are there.

@armentor, In my opinion this time sun is reflecting as hugging with the clouds and that effect is really amazing to explore for sure.

And for sure it's reflecting as Sun is spreading the hands really wide and it's reflecting as Sun is hugging clouds while spreading the wings.

And yes, we have to appreciate the nature because nature gives awesome essence to us and for sure nature is Breathtaking aspect.

And in my opinion the greatest aspect from these pictures is, the effect of Waves and waves are reflecting so lively.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂


Thank you for your words. Mother Nature gives us so much, thus why we must take care of her!


Welcome and you've said absolutely true point. Stay blessed. 🙂

I'm taller than you old one! I'll be coming down for the block party, maybe I'll start and take some pictures now that Steem is hopefully at the bottom!
