The Sunset at the Beach
Last Sunday, we spent the day at the beach. The day went by quickly amidst lots of fun and games. Soon it was time to leave for home and all of us were in a happy mood, singing and laughing.
We turned to take a look at the setting sun. All of a sudden, a quiet hush descended upon us. There is always something magical about a sunset; though you see one every day, the beauty of it never ceases to amaze you.
The sky looked like a canvas painted with different hues of many colors. Amidst this colorful palette, the sun stood out like an orange ball of fire. As the sun neared the horizon, the water shimmered and glowed in its reflection. I was awed by the beauty of nature and wondered whether it was possible to replicate these beautiful shades on canvas. I quickly took a picture of the setting sun.
As the sun disappeared below the horizon, the sky too seemed to mellow down and changed into a more somber colour, as though preparing itself for the long night ahead.
We were shaken out of our reverie and left the beach with the memory of this beautiful moment etched in our mind forever.
