Watching the Sun go down
Wherever we are on the planet, we can take the time to stand and watch the sun set, and appreciate the beauty of the event. Here a small group of tourists wait on a rocky outcrop as the sun descends into the haze over the strange landscape of Hampi in India. Behind us a scampered game of soccer is taking place in the temple courtyard where the monks relax before darkness falls. Far off, the sound of a small flock of crows carries in the still air and nearby can be heard the chittering of some monkeys. The air is hot and humid, so there’s no incentive to walk back down the hill just yet. The day is nearly over. It’s time to sit and reflect.
