the world forgetting, by the world forget.

    how happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
    the world forgetting, by the world forgot.
    eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
    each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd;


    may one kind grave unite each hapless name,
    and graft my love immortal on thy fame!
    then, ages hence, when all my woes are o'er,
    when this rebellious heart shall beat no more;
    if ever chance two wand'ring lovers brings
    to paraclete's white walls and silver springs,
    o'er the pale marble shall they join their heads,
    and drink the falling tears each other sheds;
    then sadly say, with mutual pity mov'd,
    "oh may we never love as these have lov'd!"

      This is a spectacular sunset. I love the hues on the water.

      Nice shot of the bay Youngdoo, I warned you about the length of the walk up to the top!!! It's only 45% for about 200m I'd say! I guess you photo stitched this? I don't think 28mm would cover the whole bay with one shot, I really should try doing some panoramic stuff sometime. I'd agree the sky there can be best after sunset, especially as you don't get the sun shining over the water. I'm glad you got a nice shot.

      I like how the red or orange on the mountains in the distance makes the blue pop out even though the blue by itself is still pretty intense.
