Daily Wanderlust: Sunset in Malmö, Sweden

Written by on May 25, 2012 in Destinations - 12 Comments

There is a magic that comes with sunsets.

When that giant ball of red sinks deep into the horizon. When the colors cast are so vivid, you’d swear you’re in another reality. When you can almost hear the collective sigh of every other person around you as daylight gives way to twilight gives way to night.

In Sweden, this happens later than Las Vegas — to the tune of a few hours.

After a gorgeous dinner in the sustainable enclave of the West Harbour in Malmö, Sweden, my new friend (by way of paddle boarding), and I took some time to soak in the last sips of daylight on the boardwalk.

The sunsets here are prolonged, as if the sun just decides to hover where it is for hours, giving people permission to enjoy the day even longer.

On this night, that is precisely what we did.

Even after the sun disappeared behind the Baltic Sea and Denmark, I sat, staring at the beautiful remnants of the day, taking the last wisps of light and burning the memory of the Malmö sunset into my mind.

      Thank you! I had help with the camera settings since I am still learning, but pretty sure that echoes what I was seeing with my eye.

      I know! I cannot wait to go back! I had help with those sunset pics — didn’t know the right settings – so some of them aren’t actually from my click. But, there were about 70 of them, so not sure which were mine and which weren’t. I will see you SOON!!
