Photo-A-Day: Sunset

I was looking forward to this photo topic. Sunrises and sunsets are my favourite times of the day. Today’s sunset was not overly exciting, but over the years I have seen some pretty spectacular skyscapes. It is always a household tradition, if one of us (usually hubby) sees a great sunset or sunrise, to call everyone out for a look and a snapshot.

Then there are those kind of sunsets you wait around for, such as a sunset on Uluru. Nothing quite like it, with the red glow seemingly emanating from the rock. Or, the sunset on the beach at the Mindil Beach markets, or even in Broome. Watching the sun dip below the horizon while the golden rays reflect off the ocean is hard to beat.

To me, sunsets and sunrises are like God’s living artwork. Forever changing in their colours and shapes. No two sunsets are ever the same. So, I sit and say, “What are you going to paint me today, Lord?” He never lets me down. Kind of like a love letter in the sky. No-one can do it better. Creation displays His glory in living colour. How can one doubt that He is real when you see that incomparable artwork splashed across the heavens?

“The heavens declare the glory of God;  the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” [Psalm 19:1 NIV]

  1. I will send you some of Gods sunsets from west coast soon

    • Thanks uncle foff! Send them. I will appreciate them even though I know you’re just trying to make me jealous.:)

  2. My dad was the spotter of sunsets in my home. He always called us to the veranda when it spilled onto the horizon. Quite fitting, actually…. as he was the first from his family to meet with the Lord as Saviour and introduced his parents, siblings and children to Him too. He saw the Light of the world and has never stopped pointing.

    Hmmm… I think I just wrote a blog post on YOUR page 😉
    Hope you’re feeling better today. xx

    • Oh yeah! Preach it sister. Love it!: )
