@LorcaThe Magic of Sunset


You'll think you're having a dream. The orange with a pale tint alters the tonality of the blue sea. The natural light and color spectacle that precedes the darkness begins. You thought you were going to enjoy the sunset from the mountains, sitting on a dune, but this is pure magic.


For all the hopeless romantics out there: I am a Libran who loves beauty, harmony, and peace, and I am a hopeless romantic who falls in love deeply.


Sunset is a natural wonder, and when our eyes are drawn to the sun's warm colors, we are transported to another world. It takes your breath away, leaves you speechless, and, if only for a moment, slows time. In that moment, you feel love and gratitude for Mother Nature.


A sunset holds the promise of a new day. The last rays of the sun peeking out from the horizon bring with them the realisation that tomorrow holds limitless possibilities. You know it won't last, but you savour every last drop of its illusionary beauty.


Life is full of ups and downs. We are stressed and frustrated at times, but just as the sunset signifies a new day, we all hope for a fresh start and a new life whenever we face a difficult situation in our lives.


Do you ever feel trapped in your life because you are overburdened with something? Do the days seem to stretch on forever, as if you'll never get through them all?


I used to feel like that when the COVID started, super stressed and stretched out, as if I was on the verge of collapsing, mentally and physically exhausted all the time. I was in my final semester when everything changed in a second. Life stopped at a point where I was lost and had no idea how life would work. I had high hopes for my life; I was about to finish my studies and was looking forward to a life full of wonder and a promising legal career.


Life after the pandemic was a nightmare for everyone, sad and sacred at the same time. It was as if life had been paused, everything had stopped, and we were in rest mode. Everyone was locked up and isolated from the rest of the world.


Fortunately, I returned home to Ladakh, which is very close to nature. I began to think, "Things aren't so bad; I'm fortunate enough to see a beautiful sunrise and sunset every day." This would give me something to look forward to every day, as well as a project to keep myself occupied and remind me that life isn't so bad.


A sunset for me is a way of connecting with a deeper part of myself, as well as with how awesome and amazing our world is! The vibrant colors, combined with the soothing stillness of the surrounding sky, create an image that shines beauty on everything it comes into contact with. And as the day fades into night, there's something very soothing about the setting sun. As I take it all in, mesmerised by its beauty, I'm reminded of how fortunate we are to live in such a wonderful world.
