Photo Essay: An Eastern Sunset

You ever have one of those epiphanic (conjugation of the day) moments when time stands still and the answers to all those cryptic, unsolved questions start sprinting towards you across blinding synapses in your brain? “I’ve got the solution for peace in the Middle East!” “Turn lead into gold? What, you don’t know how to do that…?”


Well, this most definitely was not one of those moments. This was a moment when there was absolutely nothing going on in my head but the pure silence of this cloud-parting sunset in Hong Kong.


And it was just as brilliant.

    Love the picture! it’s nice to have moments like that where we can forget about the small things and appreciate what we take for granted every day.

    Interesting interpretation. I actually thought of how the power of the Sun, though struggling through all of the pollution, smog, and inclement weather, still managed to shine down upon the beautiful city of Hong Kong. Kind of makes you think that nothing is truly ever impossible without supreme effort. Maybe I didn’t get as disconnected a feeling as you did, but still it still felt promising nonetheless.

    I have those moments all the time. Unfortunately I’m either sleeping or just not paying attention, and never seem to remember WHAT was so ingenious. Great shot though. Can’t get that in NY.
