Everywhere we are in remote control mode. TV offers hundreds of channels which we gladly click through until we reach the end only to start over again. On the internet, we move from one story to the next before completing the first, and we are told to write only a few sentences to a paragraph…
On my walk home tonight which conveniently was across the beach, I started taking photos like this: Dramatic skies but in a Norwegian winter day dramatic sky: And then it turned into an Indonesian sky: Or maybe the opposite of the Northern Lights: but in fact it was a Los Angeles sky!
Ok, I am stuck on cloud formations over the beach. These struck me last evening because the clouds were so gray and so white next to each other. No storm came though.
I became obsessed last night again at sunset but this time with the way the light reflected off of the sand and sea. I only had my iPhone with me but the effect is like a copper engraving.
Another day another sunset gratefully. Something I can not seem to get enough of. A bit of iPhone magic (perhaps). It looks like a parfait to me, layers of color, layers of different media (sun, clouds/marine layer, sea).
I don’t know why, but I am completely obsessed with the colors of the sky rather than the actual sunset itself. I love these colors, and as humans apparently we are only able see a fraction of the spectrum emitted by the sun.
The best sunsets are where there is clean air. Among other things (like spectacular marine life) you can find clean air in Raja Ampat which means the four kings in Indonesian. Missing diving and missing Indonesia…
