Surfing the Web the other day ……. ok, I admit it, procrastinating about doing anything remotely useful …….. I came across a fabulous set of photos on some travel blog or other, showing sunsets all over the world. Oh, they set my feet to itching and my mouth to salivating. Then reality set in. I just can’t travel at the moment. I can’t take off and see all these wonderful sights first hand :=( I wanted to cry. My feet felt like lead. My heart hit the floor. I cursed myself for allowing this to happen. I raged against an unfair fate. THEN……..I remembered photos I’d taken of sunrises and sunsets here………….. and I thought, as one friend recently pointed out to me, if you have to be grounded there ARE worse places!
So I thought I would share these scenes with you. First the sunrises, sunsets to follow the next time I feel like this!
I know this is not a great photo. I knew the colors would change and the moment would be lost, so I snapped before I was in the position I would have liked to have been in. The colors are exactly as they were. Simply, stunning. Montaña Roja again.
At the time I caught this sunrise, some years ago, I was stuck in a bad place, but on the cusp of change for a much better time in life. My morning walk, these sunrises kept me going during the rest of horrible days!
Yep – worse places to be stuck, I guess!
