Sunsets on the beach

in photography •  3 months ago

The sun rising in the morning and setting in the evening, especially when there are some clouds in the sky is the most magical time of day. I love being on the beach at that time to capture some magical photos.

Here in Uruguay the local people have a tradition when it comes to sunsets. Little groups of people gather at the beach to watch the sunset and when it has finally disappeared from sight altogether everybody claps their hands. I had never witnessed this before anywhere in the world. It is most unusual but I think it rather nice. its a way of saying "thank you" to the miracle of nature.

Every summer season, which extends from December to end of March we get the cruise liners stopping in the bay. This was one of them and I managed to capture a nice shot of it just as the sun was setting behind it.

Beautiful photo! It's done in Hawaii as well. They also usually have a ceremony for sunrises.


thats nice to know, I dont know about sunrises here I am never at the beach that early. Thanks for the compliment @cendrinemedia

Beautifully captured @claudiaz!


My pleasure!

Ha ha yes, there is one more place that people clap their hands at the sunset! Santorini in Greece is supposed to have one of the best sunsets in the world. And since we are talking about the most touristic island of the country and one of the top destinations worldwide, there are a lot of bars with nice view to the west that actually sell the spectacle of the sun diving in the sea as if they were the producers of the show. Only in this case it is the tourists that clap their hands :)


wow nice to know, thank you. Well at least we know the tourists enjoyed the show! lol. Its so sad though that it takes people to go on holiday, before they notice something so miraculous that happens every day no matter where we live, yet very few ever both to look! thanks @fotostef
