Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunset

I have been longing for a sunset challenge.

For my 51st birthday a dear and forever friend took me to Tahiti for 4 days.

What a surprising place it was.

On our last night there – Tahiti presented me with a gift.

Her heavens opened up with the most amazing sunset my eyes have ever seen.

This is what I saw that night.

I’m sorry there are so many.

I couldn’t choose between them.

    1. Hi Gilly – Tahiti was not at all what I imagined. Luckily the friend I was with is a lot like me and likes to go where the locals are, and get away from the tourist areas. So we saw and met some amazing poeple and sights in Tahiti. I loved the place.

    Dear friend, know it would have been such a same, almost a crime, NOT to share such sunsets with the lot of us πŸ™‚

    PS: Thanks for commenting on that piece I sent to you. I don’t remember if I ever figured out how to respond to your response…LOL. Hope you have a great day ❀
    Another PS: Great gift from that friend of yours!

  2. Travelling is one of the best things you can do – if I had more money I would spend it all on journeys to all those beautiful places on earth. Sunset in Tahiti – you are so lucky! Beautiful photos!

    1. Hi Britta,
      thank you.
      It really was indescribable – what a terrible thing for a writer to say. It was a moment that I actually stopped and noticed no other thing around me but the effect of that light on my world.

  5. The second and fourth shots work best for me Jo – the cloud and the foreground beach really balance the composition. Looks like a very pleasant evening by the sea πŸ™‚

  6. Sunset in Tahiti. It sounds like it should be a fancy drink. Spectacular pictures! I think that water looks a bit like thick whipped chocolate batter, the way it blends atop the sand in the front of the pictures.
