Sunsets Over Sabah


Sunset is my favorite time of the Day. As the sun slowly sets over Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, it seems that everything just slows down. Maybe it’s the end of the working day, or maybe it’s because you’re heading home to see your loved ones. But it seems that the world around you just takes a breather as the sun is setting.

I have seen sunsets in many parts of the world, in a number of cities but I do not recall actually having the time to just chill and enjoy the sight. Life in Sabah is different, somehow I feel more in tune with nature. I always feel recharged after a such a beautiful sight in the sky. Especially after the rain, when everything seems more vivid, and the sky is painted in such incredible colors.

Some people think I’m nuts, getting all excited over a sunset. They think it isn’t something you need to photograph. I mean, you’ll see it again tomorrow right? Take a look and let me know what you think.

I took most of these pictures from where I live. There are many times I wished I had a camera with me while I am driving. The route from Tuaran to my place offers many wonderful views of the setting sun. Sometimes, it looks like an orange ball in the sky. Other times, everything is just bathed in a golden light and you feel that all is well in the world.

While seeing the sunset at a seaside resort is romantic, I have always felt that it is more beautiful inland. The next time you are in Sabah, try seeing the sunset on top of Mt Kinabalu.
