A sunset like this one makes me laugh at my own attempts to create art. Why try to paint this? Or photograph it? Or write a poem about it? If this short video is only able to capture a small fraction of the overwhelming beauty and intense emotional impact of this moment, then what hope do my brushes or my camera or my pen have?
As if this display of breathtaking gorgeousness wasn't enough...
On this particular evening, the sunset was followed almost immediately by the setting of the bright orange crescent moon.
I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. Even my camera freaked out a little over it.
Maybe the tides were making mischief on the other side of the world, and the moon had to rush off to crack some tidal skulls.
Maybe the sun drove off with the moon’s purse on the front seat of her fiery chariot, and the moon had to chase her down for it because her cell phone and house keys were in there.
Sorry you had to leave so soon.
