19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The skyline a while before the sunset.

It is the skyline a while before the sun sets, where the sun kisses the clouds goodbye before it allows for the moon to shine. It was only 5 days before the turn of the year. A year that was spend in isolation, self reflection, child bearing, struggles and growth even though it did not look like growth most of the times. It was the sky, only a few days before the start of the new year, that reminded me life is not meant to be predictable. Life should not be expected to have a certain outcome exactly the same way sky cannot be the same from moment to moment. Just like the sky, life is beautiful for all it brings. Sometimes bright, sometimes dark. No expectations, only acceptance.
