[SkyWatch] Another Bay Sunset

Manila Bay, 2011
Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer to your goal.
     ~ Elbert Hubbard (American writer 1856-1915)

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
     ~ Rabindranath Tagore (Bengali polymath 1861-1941)

I love both, photos and quotes, and you know, I miss the sea!

Ms. Becky said...

oh, love the quotes today, they are so perfect with your lovely sunset photos. one of the most beautiful colors in a sunset for me are those pearl gray/blues. there's nothing quite like them. the drama of the last photos is awesome. happy day to you Francisca.

Hi Francisca, Happy Weekend. This is the view of the Manila Bay Sunset i am familiar with, although of course i still haven't been there yet for the sunsets. Imagine that when i am living in QC of MM! By the way i am guessing if the honey your refer to is a Filipino.

It is impossible to watch too many sunsets. Each one is a small window of insight. ~Mary
