An Archipelago Sunset!!

There is something about sunset in wide open seas that appeals to me. May be it is the vibrant colours, may be it is the fact that there is water all around and the sun is the only object around.

Honestly, I don’t know what makes it so breathtaking. It gets even better if you are sailing past innumerable islands in an archipelago and the sun sets against the tiny hills on these islands.

I got a live feel of this when I was sailing from Hut Bay in Little Andaman to Port Blair in South Andaman.

Right through the journey, the entire western side was dotted with small and medium sized islands. Some were tiny flat lands, some had tiny hills that formed cliff like structures while the others looked liked dormant volcanoes with just a peak on the entire island.

The entire setting, which was already beautiful, turned into a fabulous show when the sun started its descent beyond the hills in the wide open seas. The sky started changing colours and so did the ocean waters.

It truly was a spectacular sight. An archipelago sunset at its awesome best!
