When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
It’s been one month since I made the trip to Shantiniketan still the charm of that peaceful retreat is vivid in my mind. And when I thought about a beautiful sunset I have enjoyed in recent times I could remember this one at Srijani Shilpagram, Shantiniketan.
The sun slid behind the leafy branches of eucalyptus setting the sky on fire. I stood speechless for some time and then slowly walked towards the main gate of the ground where my family was waiting for me.
P.S: In case you have missed the first three of my sunset moments here are the links for you.
“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”
It was a summer evening. I went up the rooftop to bring the clothes I put to dry under the sun earlier that day. Luckily, I had my camera with me. It was almost dusk. The sky turned deep grey with the sun gleaming like an orange fireball. I zoomed in to capture it through the leaves of a palm tree swaying in the cool evening breeze. Hope you like it… 🙂

As the sun set over the horizon it painted the sky in golden and warm orange hues. The pigeons started flying back to their nests. Dusk fell over the lake quietly. I stood still on the stairs of the ghats for some time watching the sun god leaving us for the day and soaked up the peacefulness of the moment.
