Ball of fire [Sky-Watch Friday]

I listened to the hush of this glorious sunset as Manila Bay bathe in the crimson evening glow. Like copper in the furnace, the horizon burns and the city eagerly waits for the night to cover its sorrows.


Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears. The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. ~ Kahlil Gibran

Beautiful series of sunset photos. I was in Manila Bay a few times when I was staying in Makati. My deepest impression of Manila Bay was in the year 2004 when I was watching the Firework display during the New Year. It was a very close encounter and certainly a beautiful experience.

Susan said...

Sympatico...your sun set on Manila Bay, and rose on my bay on the Ottawa River...would swear it was just minutes from one side to the other. Nice
