Craig Zabranksy (whose Sunset Sunday posts on his website, Stay Adventurous, were the inspiration for our Picture Perfect series) has said that a sunset “slows, seduces, and surprises.” With every sunset that I’m lucky enough to experience, I agree with him more and more.
These days, it seems like we have millions of things in our lives to cause us stress or worry. (Being back to school and taking graduate classes again, I sure have my fair share!)
No matter what part of New Jersey (or the world) I’m in at sunset – whether there is a clear westerly view or not, I find it to be the perfect opportunity to reflect and appreciate some of the good things that are happening as well. I like to think of the colors and the way the light moves, filling out the sky, as a once in a lifetime event; each sunset is a unique experience.
Here is a photo I took just last week when I was heading home at the end of a very long day. I hope it will slow, seduce, and surprise you too…
