On Top Of The World

I’ve always been a sunset chaser.

There’s something about the rapidly changing colours of the sky as the sun goes down that has always fascinated me. I rarely get anything else done around the final hours of the day as when the sky’s on fire, I often can’t concentrate on anything else.

Sunsets in the city are just fine, though they are often just a little more lovely if you can escape for a while. My favourite spot to disappear to is Ditchling Beacon, one of the highest points in the Sussex Downs, and in my opinion, one of the best places to watch the sun go down. It’s calm and quiet and despite being just a 5 minute drive from the city, it gives the feeling that you are in themiddle of nowhere, and on top of the universe, all at once. I’m pretty sure the sky is bigger there too, so is the perfect venue for some sunset chasing.

    GORGEOUS pictures! Sunset/sunrise must be one of the most beautiful things ever. I think the nicest one I’ve witnessed so far was a Madrid sunset watched from the rooftops πŸ™‚

    I love the hills all around that area! There’s something about the sunsets there that is just so beautiful. I remember taking a picture passing through there a few years ago, and I’ll always love the shot for the colours within it!

  • Sunset hour is my favourite part of the day, I adore seeing all those colours exploding in the sky, especially if I’m on the beach which is my favourite spot for sunset watching πŸ™‚

  • Whenever I see the clouds starting to gain a pink tint, I will undoubtedly tug at whoever is next to me, point to the sky, and say “look!” -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

  • I’m most definitely a sunset chaser too. I love them. I’m really lucky in the summer that the sun sets right outside my bedroom window and it’s always so incredibly beautiful I wish I could watch it forever. Your photography is beautiful, too <3
