One of the things that has always captured my attention is a particularly striking sunset.

Over decades and continents and countries and cities, I have reached out to capture the magic of the colours that I can see in the sky, no matter how crude my own attempts seem to be.

It didn’t matter if the sun didn’t quite set in the exact same way wherever on the planet I happened to be.

The striking light of the sun just has to catch my eye, and I am held riveted until the light changes.

I’m a fool for the way the sun’s light plays with shadows and changes colours.

I don’t even know why I’m compelled to take the camera out as though it can catch the fleeting magic.

But the light and the dark, and the shadows still hold me captive.
