Just A Little Prettiness 8


The sky was changing from pink to mauve then a bright orange before decending into darkness. We managed to capture a few moments of how our normally unremarkable streetscape turned into something quite beautiful. An equally beautiful name is given in Chinese to described the beautiful sky when it is painted in such stunning manners - 晚霞 (wanxia) - roughly translated as the late afterglow.

  4. Very beautiful sunset shot! I get very emotional whenever I see beautiful nature shots -- it never fails to remind me the sheer magnitude of nature, the vastness of all things bigger than us mere mortals.
