Photos & Notes. The Pleasure Of looking At The Sunset.


There are many reasons why people (among them and me) are so obsessed and magnified by sunsets and sunrise.

Sunsets and sunrises are beautiful. They have plenty of vivid and warm colors. Each day they differ. It’s the moment that we appreciate the beauty of nature. It’s the end of the day… and the point to turn the page. In this post, I share my favorite quote from “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and a sunset photo I’ve shot at the Plataria Beach in Igoumenitsa, Greece.

For a long time, you have found your only entertainment in the quiet pleasure of looking at the sunset.

– But on your tiny planet, my little prince, all you need is move your chair a few steps. You can see the day end and the twilight falling whenever you like…
– One day, you said to me, I saw the sunset forty-four times!
– You know — one loves the sunset when one is so sad…
– Were you so sad, then? I asked. On the day of the forty-four sunsets?
But the little prince made no reply“.
