As the sun will always set, we try our best to compare it to the next, another moment in our lives just as magnificent. The task is impossible. Each time the sun dwindles and the clouds follow, it frames specific details to try and align, its picturesque. And naturally we conclude, each time the sun sets, it draws another day ended, anticipating the experience is as beautiful as the previous one. Sun lit clouds resemble coals glowing in a burning fire. Sun rays beaming from the horizon reaching to peel the darkness over the earth. Perhaps you’ll witness the elusive “green flash” once the sun sets completely pass the naked eye. An explosion of color exhumes from the horizon refracting off the clouds creating dynamic hues to cherish and remember.
This sunset brings me back to a time on Pagan, hiking to places i’Ive never seen before. The surf was up, westerly swells stirring up the black sand beach washing golden spondylus shards on to the beach. If you look to the left, you’ll see The Klamath, anchored up surging back and fourth from the swell. The Super Emerald drifting in the horizon awaiting our departure from this paradise. These subtle details of a picture bring me back to that exact moment. It was our last night on Pagan, then sun was setting while I was positioned myself the bluff that oversee’s the bay. The mosquitos were right on time, feeding off my warm blood as I made an attempt to manage the shutter speed of the camera while swatting my legs. The smell of smoke lingering in the air as the “catch of the day” cooked on an open flame. I’m teleported to this week long journey of escape from social media and cell phones. I remember the feeling of isolation and the revelation that the simple things in life are the ones that bring us pure happiness. #thoughts #contrast #sunsat #sunset #påganisland #pågan #northernislands #northernmarianaislands #ginenmarianas #nikon
