SWF: Sunset in the Himalayas

Go view a variety of beautiful skies across the world at Skywatch.


One of the most satisfying
experiences I know is fully to
appreciate
an individual in the same way
I appreciate a sunset
.
When I look at a sunset...
I don't find myself saying,
'Soften the orange a litle more on
the right hand corner,
and put a bit more purple along the base,
and use
a little more pink in the cloud color...'
I don't try to control a sunset.
I watch it with awe as it unfolds.

~ Carl Rogers

Cheerful children in Mussorie....
appreciating them just as they are


Following my previous post, am going to share here a few more pictures of the glorious sunset in Mussorie:





Softly the evening came.
The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended
his golden wand o'er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose;
and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch,
and melted and mingled together.
~ H.W. Longfellow

The magician has done it again.

Where do I find words to comment upon such brilliant pictures associated with H W Longfellow's "Softly the evening came ----".

Simply awesome.

P.S. After a long literary exile, I am slowly trying to catch up with what I missed during this period.

May God help me.
