Lost in the clouds

About this photo: If it's big, we want you to shoot it and share it. Head here to get in on Thematic's big week.There are some subjects that'll never get old, that are worth coming back to again and again because you always find some new way to look at them. I count sunrises and sunsets among them, and I'll apologize now if the repetition is getting a little, well, repetitious.
Sometimes I think the actual picture is less important than the feeling I get when I take it. As the day ends, you have a few fleeting minutes to feel the moment before it slips into history. Tomorrow morning will bring on a whole new performance in the sky, but it's up to you, right here and right now, to remember the last little bit of today. You feel a little bit small, a little bit peaceful, and a little bit humble to be witnessing something so extraordinary.
Or maybe it just feels good to be out on the balcony, quietly trying to capture a feeling through a lens. Maybe it can be as simple as that.
Your turn: What does the sunset mean to you?
