With all the cold weather we’ve been having lately, I thought I may warm you up with some of the most spectacular displays of sunsets that I have ever witnessed in my life.
They come from various parts of the world, but manage to display the beauty that Mother Nature is known for, and I hope they get across the feeling of awe that I had when I witnessed them.
I chose these three because of one thing: As the sun set, it engulfed the entire sky with varying colours that it felt like I was wearing filters on my eyes. Everything in front of me turned different colours that it was almost as if I was in another world.
In no particular order, here are my three top favourite sunsets that I’ve witnessed.
While on a speedboat in Thailand, heading towards Railay Island from Phi Phi Island, I witnessed this majestic sunset as the sun disappeared behind the mountains to the right of this picture. It left a lasting impression on me as the entire sky for as long as you can see turned purple-pink-blue-orange-yellow. This trip was the first time I’ve ever seen a sunset so spectacular.
“Toronto?” you may be asking yourself? As hard as it may be to believe, this Toronto sunset ranked as one of my favourites as I was standing in the right place at the right time. I just happened to be at the Scarborough Bluffs that evening when the sun painted the clouds all shades of blue, purple, pink, orange, and yellow as the sun progressed down behind the cliff. In fact when I saw this, it reminded me of that sunset in Thailand that I had witnessed long ago.
This photo here was taken before the sun had dipped below the horizon, so the colours were still a gentle pastel blue, pink, and red. As the sunset progressed, the colours intensified into a magical display of blue, purple, pink, orange, red, and yellow. The reflection on the lake also made for a fantastic moment.
Fiji is known to have one of the best sunsets in the world, so it’s not surprising that it is on my list. What’s even more impressive is that it didn’t happen just once, but several times during our stay here. The entire view in front of me changed into a rainbow of colours as the sun dipped below the horizon. It was magical to say the least.
With a foreground filled with overwater bungalows and tropical paradise, there’s no doubt it was one of my-if not my most-favourite of sunsets.
Have you witnessed an amazing sunset somewhere around the world?
Comment below as I’d love to hear about it as well.
