Sunsets

 

Sunset has always fascinated me, ever since I joined the Royal Navy, and took part

in the evening ceremony of " Sunset ", the lowering the White Ensign and Union Jack.

it signified the end of the working day, (however the ship never stopped working),

although a sense of peace and calm prevailed.

It was particularly poignant, when performed with the Royal Marine Band, playing the ceremonial call, and really special,

when the sun was actually setting in some exotic country, halfway around the world.

Mombasa, Aden, Mauritius, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Phillipines, where the sunsets are something else !...

Digital cameras were not around at that time, and film cameras were expensive, to buy, and develop and print the film,

so unfortunately I only have the memories inside my head !

Not as spectactular, but nevertheless, still a wondorous sight, here are a few I managed to take over the past couple of years
