I was out for a jog around a nearby lake the other evening, and happened to witness the sunset whilst there. It was beautiful. I couldn’t help but take some pauses from my jog to take some photos of the scene before me, and then I just had to share it with other people. In this post I’ll be sharing it with you. Yes, I mean you as an individual, you’re the one looking at this post so why wouldn’t I mean you.
I’ve always admired the beauty of nature in many forms, but this time was different. I usually make a conscious decision to look around at my surroundings, making a mental note of them, whereas this scene seemed to demand my attention, it would not allow me to ignore it, which reminds me of a quote from the book version of the fault in our stars, made by Hazels Dad:
I believe the universe wants to be noticed. I think the universe is improbably biased towards consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it – or my observation of it – is temporary?
Excuse the quality of these photos – they were taken on my old phone, I’ve recently upgraded to one with a much better camera so next time I’m there at sunset I’ll take some more for those of you who may be interested.
