Sometimes all you ask is a decent sunset. Although every sunset is beautiful, we don’t always get perfect sunset. I am talking about the uncooperative weather that disappoints us. Then, sometimes you just get it. As if your wish is granted by mother nature. And that’s what I got while I was coming down Bear Canyon Trail. Watching the flaming sky over the bright sun sinking over the ocean in the far distance felt like a moment when time stood still. As if everything else didn’t matter while the whole world was turning yellow, orange and magenta.
