Wandering around the curve of the coast, away from the Costa de Oro beach resort (photos of that up next post or the one after), jumping over rocks, it was my first chance to see a sunset in the Southern Hemisphere. This excitement was only slightly tempered by all the rubbish that had been dumped at this beautiful spot.
There was a sense of calm, away from the beach goers and a pleasant silence as we perched on one of the many angular rocks. The whole place was ours for the moment.
There was some excitement when we thought the sun would sink between the islands but it veered off as the sun usually does, which is of course what we all know causes global warming.
The speed of the descent was surprising but also allowed for all these shots and lots more to be taken in the space of no more than ten minutes.
Accompanying clouds were given a myriad of different colours during the descent and all the yachts and boats were wonderfully silhouetted. I got the feeling that this is how to live life properly.
Then finally the great fiery ball was gone and the world slowly darkened, enough to have to use a torch to get over the rocks. It was off for another fine meal after that, which was the norm throughout my month there.
All these shots were taken at different zooms with my camera except for the first which was Crissy’s.
