Just another sunset

Yup, just another one of those sunsets... 😉

It was one of the last ones of October, about two weeks ago

It's always this same view ~ from the front window of my apartment
in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Somehow being slightly elevated on the fourth floor provides me the advantage of capturing the sunsets just over the buildings and treetops!

Always this view, but oh, what a difference of scenes
Depending on what Mother Nature feels like dealing out to me that day!

As I always say, I just click whatever is given to me... 😊

Post-sunsets are the best!
That is, after the sun goes down
is when showtime starts...

Scenes change fast during this bewitching hour
Be sure to be ready to spend some time... and pay attention!
Don't wander off...
or you might miss the highlight of the evening

All these were shot within 15 minutes or so...
With one to three minutes between each shot

I try to alternate between zoom-in shots...
And zoom-out
where you see what my entire view looks like
Well, almost....

Those clump of trees on the right are personal favourites!
Especially the bare branch one
Couldn't resist this shot with some sky colours backing them

The skyscrapers in silhouette are amongst the tallest in the city at the moment, hence still visible even though I'm outside the city
You have (from right) the Petronas Twin Towers, KL Tower, the up-coming Merdeka 118 and the Exchange 106
Extreme left is a nearby minaret of a mosque

Further left, my view is a lil more uncluttered, and peaceful...
Totally befitting the gorgeous orange of this evening

And the warmth spreads
as the lights start to come on

The colours of the evening

Sometimes the colours intensify
Just for that one moment
Before they fade away

I am still waiting for my drama skies. It is either way still all blue, or completely cloudy.
No fun...

Wow! Excellent series! Love the narration too. Great post.

And the warmth spreads
as the lights start to come on

That line struck me. As the night deepens, it gets colder, but you've captured the new warmth, the warmth that is not warm. What a view! Lucky you!

Oh AC, I love your apartment. Can I come live with you?
It won't be too long before I will not be able to
Travel much, which would be a crying shame.
Love your sunsets my friend. @ackhoo 💚

Sunsets from home always spectacular, a short time to let go of everything and just watch natures paint brush touch the skies.

Gorgeous captures @ackhoo have a wonderful evening.

So right.... I literally drop everything and grab the camera... and am lost!
I can thank these lockdowns for the time and opportunity for them! :)
Have a good day too, @joanstewart! And thank you!!

Where Earth and Sky meet
~
Within our eyes such wonder,
This glory now to see,
Sky bows down so lovely,
To touch the earth for me.

This vision that I witness
It fills my soul with peace
Precious time this moment
To give the heart release;
For beauty that is given
Each day and night repeats.

What glory in the union
As sky and earth will meet.
Watch in quiet moment
As the night falls tenderly
Wake up to His wonder
As the sun shines reverently

Witness of this beauty
I bow my head in prayer
He is so magnificent
His Hand is always there;
Rolling clouds above us
The earth is put to rest.
When morning is upon us
Our life becomes so blest.

@ackhoo I thought this would go with your images nicely
