Fading sunset [SWF]

@ mirandablue

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy---myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my Spirit may come to you without shame.

~ a Native American Prayer

I don't want to spoil the beauty by saying the clouds in the first pic looks like Paquiao's fist! Hahaha, he will be Las Vegas for another showdown, though I do not have the details yet.

Your shots of a dramatic sunset are almost surreal, Luna... and I like the prayer too - wish a few public figures here would live by them.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

The prayer, the sentiment, the photos... all just awesome. Thanks for sharing!!

Linnea said...

Wonderful scene... it's like two worlds are merging into one: you've got the older rooftops in the foreground and the tall, modern skyscrapers in the background...along with the gorgeous sun! Perfect timing on this scene! Thanks for visiting mine!

Hi,
I know this is not your latest skywatch, but I really like this shot because it just feels like the Philippines.
