Explore with Me 002 | Sunset Silhouettes

Hello, dears!

It feels like I haven’t done a sunset post in AGES! Remember when I used to do them all the time? I should get back into photographing them more because ahhh! Sunsets! Enough said.

I hope these pictures can inspire you to take a screen break (after this post, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and find some beauty where you live!
