Well, I would like to talk about the sky I saw at sunset. It was in Bali where I had my vacation just days ago.

My friend was my guide for the day. And she took me to the famous Jimbaran Beach. It was a magnet for tourists.

You know, when lying on the beach, we were sky gazing. The sky was so gorgeous that it took our breath away. It was vast and stretched out for infinity. Andit had a smattering of low level clouds that were spread-out to the horizon.

After an hour or two, the ball of fire had turned to golden yellow and had made the colour of sky a golden tint.
tint /tɪnt/ n 色彩，浅色 blue with a purple tint 略带点紫的蓝色 a tint of pink/gold 一抹粉红色/金色
Then the sun was receding into it’s bed formed by candy clouds across the horizon. Maybe it was tired after providing us warmth relentlessly for the day and perhaps needed a nap.

So, you know, the sky’s hue darkened as the sun slowly set, the brilliant sun rays outlined the cotton-ball clouds withdifferent shades of red.

Gradually the sky started to look like an inky canopy with tiny freckles of sparkles. We were stunned by the beautiful sky.It was then that I realized beauty is everywhere hiding to be found. It’s just that we are not looking for it.
