Time out for a sunset


Sunset in Bahrain

What is it about sunsets that make you stop whatever you’re doing just to admire them? It’s not as if they’re a rare occurrence. The sun sets every day. And they’ll never be a day when it doesn’t set.

So today, I was working away. It was nearing sunset. The entire day has been a cloudy and overcast. A little unusual for Bahrain at this time of year. Very unusual actually. While working, I like to take a break every couple of hours, just for a few minutes. Stretch my legs, get some water, and maybe get some fresh air on the balcony. Yeah, I really, really like working from home.

Sadly, the balcony faces away from the sunset. Not so sadly, the sunsets light up the entire sky in Bahrain. Especially when it’s kind of overcast and cloudy. The sky lights up with the most amazing colours just before it fades to darkness, that I can’t help but take photos of.

Since coming back from Vietnam I haven’t picked up my camera nearly as much as I want to. So here I am, picking up my camera whenever the skies light up for me.

Sunsets and skies are probably the most over-photographed subjects, but with sunsets like these, I’m quite happy to be guilty of taking one too many photos of them.
