SkywatchFriday 2023 | Week 2

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add colour to my sunset sky.

Rabindranath Tagore

This week I share the many hues of the sunset sky from my part of the world. Here are some shots that would perfectly complement the quote I share from one of my all-time favourite poets—Rabindranath Tagore or Robi Thakur as the Bengalis love to address him.

One of the my earliest memories as a child was hearing my Ma recite poems from Tagore, while she would be attending to the daily chores or while sharing with us a slice of the vast world that he inhabited in the hearts and minds of the Bengali consciousness. The poet’s love of nature was profound. For him, the wide-open skies, the vast spaciousness, and the subtle tranquility of the countryside—all symbolised a deep sense of freedom. His paintings of nature are equally evocative, filling one with a sense of mystery and longing for a world that is in essence found only within one’s deepest inner core.

I shall leave the discussion of his poetry for another time. Today, again I’ll be sharing a few shots of my Bangalore skyline—the ochre and gold combo that, to me, always spells magic! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

See you next week, with more sky pics. If you love nature, and especially enjoy sky photography, I suggest you click the link below this post.

Until then, stay safe, be healthy and happy and please don’t forget to hit the pause button whenever you can, to savour that much-needed stillness at the end of your busy day.

Think calm, think serenity!

Take care
