Two Sunsets…

Here are two of my favourite photographs –

"The Tangerine Mountain"

Mt. Everest painted in vibrant orange and muave...

One is the sun setting onto Mt. Everest! Back in November 2006 I was trekking to the base camp of Mt. Everest. I stepped outside Gomba Lodge in Tengboche – to appreciate the freezing cold and the rising mist, when Lo and behold! I catch a brief glimpse of a muted orange sky. I quickly take this picture and then walk into the lodge. My fellow-travelers rush out after seeing it in hope that they can get a great shot too, but alas the mighty Sagarmatha has disappeared behind the clouds. I was truly blessed!

"Peek-a-boo"

Peek-a-boo ...An everyday sight at the Maldives?

The other is the sun setting into the gorgeous Maldivian Sea. Cumulus clouds were splashed across the sky – which made the sunset all the more exciting. The sun played a little peek-a-boo here, but hidden in there was it omniscient as ever!

About Chiteisri: The Gypsy Diaries

Its a Fair Warning to all =) While there may be some things about me that everyone knows ... There will always be something about me which nobody can or ever will, figure out! But for a typical introduction - I am a former Law student from India, who is a writer and traveler at heart. I am 27 and have been to 28 countries (and counting) and this blog is a humble attempt at taking a part of my life, experiences, holidays, learnings and dreams to another world of imagination in cyber-space. I know that the world has its fair share of problems, and there is plenty to despair about out there. But I truly believe that this world can be diverse, plural and inclusive and yet one entity - humanity. I am the Dreamer, a lost soul - slowly finding her way back home i.e. to herself! I write. I read. I paint. I dream. I learn. I listen. I empathize. I travel, and no matter who or what I become - these I shall always do! https://chiteisri.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/defining-a-me-at-23/
