Where to Get the Best Sunset in the World


While there are some places all over the world that are known for their breathtaking display of sunsets, you can actually take photographs of the best sunset in the world right from where you are. When the sun dips low over the horizon, it always casts beautiful display of colors that will never fail to awe anyone.

Manila Bay in the Philippines is considered to be one of the best spots where you can take beautiful sunset photos. The reason for this is because the sun seems to be sinking below the bay while a stream of colors is exposed on either side of the sun. Still, it might be hard to take a photograph of that if you live far away. Even if you live in the Philippines, you would still have to travel going to that spot.

You can simply take photographs of the sunset and you will be surprised with how good it will look like in pictures. The reason for this is because the colors just register beautifully in pictures. You do not need to travel somewhere else just to take pictures of the best sunset in the world.

Remember that the definition of best will change from person to person. What might be the best for you will not be the best for someone else?Sometimes, what you have close is the best that you will ever find and you will wonder why you even bothered looking for something else when it was there all along.

My fascination for clouds

I’ve been fascinated with clouds ever since I was a child. On a bright sunny day, I would look and marvel at the shapes that I see in them. Recently, I decided to take pictures of these shape-forming haze using an old digital camera.

This one looks like an extended arm. Scientists classify this type of haze as as cirrus clouds.

Cirrus clouds are the highest clouds. They usually mean fair weather. They look white and feathery.

This flying bird-like cloud is a mixture of cumulus and cirrus. Cumulus clouds are puffy. They have flat bottoms and are low in the sky. Cumulus clouds usually mean fair weather. If they grow tall, they can become thunderheads and bring rain.

Does this look like a fish to you? This type is also called cirrus cloud.

This trident-shaped cloud is another example of cirrus cloud

A clear blue sky. Did you see the moon?

This is cirrus cloud at sunset.

Venus, the stunning “evening star,” gleams in the western sky after sunset.
