Flag frozen in time

Flag frozen in time

Sometimes it just stands out. Sometimes it is the first thing you see. And it is something that caught my eye immediately upon entering the beach. Nothing special about this lifeguard hut. Except that I caught the magic hour glow slowly disappearing right before my eyes as the sun was setting over the top of the hill behind my right shoulder. It was one of those moments where you just happen to be there to witness. The clear sky was slowly getting soaked in the sunset pink hue. The flag frozen in time against the blowing wind matched the color of the rescue can.

Another day was ending

Another day was ending
As the sun dipped further close to the horizon, the glow in the hazy sky started illuminating in deep orange. The diffused glow cast on every surface was quite muted, as if it was already twilight. This is my favorite time of the day. Right before the sun sinks below the horizon. Another day was ending. Regardless of the fact that there was no clouds whatsoever, it was a good reminder that every sunset was beautiful and that it was worth waiting for another.
