Last Light...

 ...the redness had seeped from the day and night was arranging herself around us. Cooling things down, staining and dyeing the evening purple and blue black.
~~Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

 
When the sun has set, no candle can replace it.
~~George R. R. Martin


 
There are moments, above all on June evenings, when the lakes that hold our moons are sucked into the earth, and nothing is left but wine and the touch of a hand.
~~Charles Morgan

It must be a mesmerising and relaxing experience watching the sun go down over the sea with the colours changing moment by moment on the swirling surf.

I feel like I've just been to the ocean.

I love to photograph sunsets and sunrises...I wish I had an ocean to capture, but amazingly even my own backyard holds magic during those times of day! Beautiful shots of the ocean!

here i stand
on that cool and warm sand
staring into the leaving light
and you make me grow silent
inside
the best place to be silent
and i'm just in awe at the beauty.
thank you dear heart.

I like that personification of the night. It makes it sound reassuring and benevolent; exactly the way I see it. No wonder it is a "she" in French.

I love all these pictures! And I love the George R. R. Martin quote.
