Aren’t sunsets beautiful?
The beauty of sunsets have inspired people and their creations for centuries. Photographers for example, often wait for that perfect moment when they can capture the glory of a setting sun. But even the best photographers will never capture the effect a beautiful sunset can have on one’s emotions.
Even in movies and TV shows, you’ll notice that a lot of crucial moments are filmed with a stunning sunset in the background. It completely changes the mood. From a boring scene, a sunset immediately makes everything dramatic.
What Sunsets Symbolize
Such a beautiful thing like this would, without surprise, symbolize so many things. It’s more than just a gorgeous piece of scenery or a masterpiece of nature. For some people, they see more than just the colors.
Here are just a few of the things that every sunset symbolizes:
Life and death (as related to a sunrise)
In art, people often use sunrises and sunsets to depict life and death. As the sun slowly creeps up the horizon, we are reminded of new life sprouting out of fresh ground. Sure, the sun is actually right there. It only seems like it appears in the morning and goes away at night because of how the world rotates on its axis.
But science aside, the mere sight of the sun rising and setting is enough to bring in this symbolism. Somehow, when the sun sets, it reminds people that there will always be an end looming ahead.
Sunsets are not just reminiscent of gloomy things like death. In fact, a sunset can symbolize hope just as much as a sunrise can. A sunset is, after all, is a welcome scenery for anyone who’s having a bad day. It tells you that finally, whatever woes you went through today will end in a few moments.
This, of course, will give anyone new hope that the next day will be better. It’s something that makes you think about the chances you missed, and how you’re going to bounce back and try again.
When the sun starts setting, it’s hard not to think about how amazing your bed would feel like after such a long day. You may have a few lingering thoughts about work, school, or about your business.
That’s normal. You’ll probably start wondering if there’s anything you forgot to do today. You may also recount all the things that happened. Some memories will make you smile, while others will make you cringe in regret.
The important thing now is that in a few moments, you will finally be able to lie against the familiar smell of your own pillows and sheets. Hopefully, you’ll dream good dreams after that.
As mentioned it earlier, sunsets are among the most beautiful things we’re lucky to see almost every day. That beautiful mix of colors lighting up the sky is just breathtaking.
It’s really sad that though it happens every day, a lot of us miss out on the opportunity of seeing this. Sure, others may not live in areas where the sunset is highly visible. But for those who do, a lot of them are too busy that the moment just passes them by without them noticing.
That’s why whenever you feel the need to see a thing of beauty, get a good spot. Then wait for that sun to slowly set. If you capture one of the best ones, I assure you, you’ll have tears at the corners of your eyes at the very least.
Yes, any sunset will always be a source of wonder for anyone (unless you’re someone who knows the science behind it pretty well). How amazing is it that these colors were put together so perfectly, resulting in a perfect palette that lights up the sky in brilliance before everything goes completely dark.
If you don’t believe in a creator who orchestrates how everything turns out, this is something that can make you think – is there really an artist in the skies, painting a beautiful picture of beauty and hope?
Sunsets are truly among the most amazing things one can ever witness in his or her lifetime. It’s one scene that can change your mood in an instant, or make you rethink any negative thoughts you have about the world.
You see, a sunset is more than just a scientific phenomenon. It is a strong piece of evidence that somewhere out there, someone smiles down on us, knowing that at the end of the day, we need something that will remind us that it’s going to be okay.
