Wadi Rum Sunset Panorama

Wadi Rum Sunset Panorama

Wadi Rum was one of the highlights of my visit to Jordan. I spent one night camping in the desert and watched the sunset from the top of a rocky outcrop. The weather was perfect – cloudless and not too warm. A few other people were around (at the base of the outcrop on the left and some on the plain below), but otherwise it was a very tranquil and peaceful spot. A highly recommended experience for anyone visiting Jordan!

USA | Boston Harbor Sunset

USA | Boston Harbor Sunset

After a cloudy afternoon in Boston, I didn’t have much hope for a remarkable sunset. Still, I wanted to check out the harbor area for blue hour, so I got there a little early and wandered around looking for a good spot. A few minutes later, the clouds thinned out – and were lit up by the most beautiful pink, orange and red hues!

South Africa | Chapman’s Peak Drive

South Africa | Chapman's Peak Drive

The road from Noordhoek to Hout Bay, just south of Cape Town in South Africa, twists and turns as it follows the coastline around it’s namesake, the mountain called Chapman’s Peak. Parts of the coastline are nearly vertical, and the mountainside has been cut away to build the road. It’s a spectacular drive, especially in the late afternoon when the golden afternoon sun rays light up the cliffs.
