About 7 kilometres northeast of the city of Al Khor City and 60 kilometres from Doha, at Al Thakira Beach, sun falls behind the horizon, heaving the parting rays across all the sky, from the skyline to the zenith. As far as you can see, the disappearing sun rays paints the clouds with its fiery pigments, as the hues blends from the masses of pink, crimson and scarlet – scattered away with the fiery tangerine red. Never before had you realised how tenuous and thin the tranquil clouds are. Wispy and frail, like they only just exist. The high concentration of salt particles suspended in the air over the oceans causes the red sunsets – and it’s evident.
Just like this one, every sunset promises a new dawn – a proof that endings can be beautiful too. Sunsets always expound that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments, and that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again.
There’s a slight ripple in water, otherwise still, as the small jet boat rests in silence and peace. The picture makes you wonder, where is all the human kind to appreciate such a beauty of colours and nature. Too busy in the up-state building with the worldly work? How unfortunate – missing out on the inexplicable sense of tranquil awareness. Well they say, the closer to nature, the happier the person. So, when are you heading to Al Thakira beach to witness the sight where gold changes to crimson, crimson deepens to purple, and soon a sight for sore eyes passes away?
