Sunset


sunset1, originally uploaded by errum.

THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is a symbolic representation of the sunset of my inspiration.
If any one of you have seen my unruly Muse loitering around, kindly pick her up, put her in a box and send it to me.
Thank you very much and May the Force be at least with you.

However, like Percy Bysshe Shelley said, "If winter comes, can spring be far behind." Therefore, a sunrise, logically, is around the corner. A far corner,though.

Hi...
I dont know u personally, but.... never let the sun set on your inspiration... Inspiration and Optimism, are things that help you wake up everyday with a smile on ur face!
If the sun rises, jus remember that it has to set too... :-) But more importantly, also remember , that it has to rise again, too too ... :)))
Dont compare your inspiration with the sun, instead compare it to the sky.. Vast and abundant,always there! Sometimes, it might be dark, but still.... Its right there! :)

Nice photo. Why are sunsets photographed more than sunrises? Does it have something to do with capturing the light before it fades away?

Ramya!

You can't give up. Just can't. You have a readership, a following that wouldn't accept that.

Dr.Yoda (poor guy! give him a Honorary Doctorate) has personally informed me that there is no valley without a mountain. That at the end of your valley of spirits, there is a mountain of joy.

The force is WITH you, AROUND you. Jus switch on the receivers.

Capri, Pinnitteenga !

Ramya, It is the Sun's own decision to set down and wake up again. But is it not like taking advantage?? The sun's got the responsibility of giving light to the planets revolving around..

nyways, we await the far corner for a surprise (getting married ??)

Ramya,

All the best for new beginning. Neenga edhu panninaalum romba yosichu dhaan pannuveenga. Keeping fingers crossed and waiting for the sunrise :)

Cheers!!!

Ramya,

Talking of sunset, darkness etc. I am reminded of Vairamuthu's inspiring verses

Nilavinai nambi iravugal illai
Vilakkugal kaatum velichathin ellai
Oru vaasal moodi oru vaasal vaipaan
Iraivannn...

Come back soon.

Its nice and gr8.....

It would have been better had you avoided bringing the tree tips a small protrusion at the top of the frame....b'cos it distracts the viewers attention

yeah, Drragonn,

i did take the pic myself.
the tree tip is deliberate. it is a classic case of what is called foregrounding in photography - technique used to localise vast scapes...

Ramya,

How can the sun set for the sun itself. It may only be a small eclipse that is hiding your brightness from us.

We are eagerly looking forward to the sparkling shine of the SUN of the blogworld "Ramya" to pierce through this eclipse and bathe this fortunate community with her brightness and warmth again.
