Henry David Thoreau once said, “I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.” Like all transcendentalists, Thoreau believed that all of life’s questions could be answered through nature. Nature consists of many beautiful things – trees, flowers, butterflies, animals, sunsets, etc. Personally, out of all these extraordinary natural elements of the world, the beach, especially during sunset, is my favorite place in nature. Giving me mixed feelings when there, the beach at sunset is my most favorite place in nature because of its beautiful colors, peaceful and relaxing mood, and as it reminds me of what I am thankful for in life.
Firstly, the colors from the beautiful sunset and any beach are amazing and appalling. They constantly change from red or pink, to yellow, or orange or peach, even to purple as the sun sinks further and further over the horizon. In my opinion, I believe these colors are very vibrant and alive than anywhere else in this world.
After witnessing numerous sunsets at many different beaches, I can indubitably state that every sunset has its unique effect that blows my mind away.
Furthermore, the beach at sunset sets a peaceful, soothing and relaxing mood for me. The changing colors are so peaceful that they make me feel good in the inside. When staring at the sunset, I feel relaxed and care-free, forgetting all my worries and focusing just on the scene in front of my astonished eyes.
The colors of the evening sky change as the sun sinks down, creating a soothing mood. My whole body just seems to feel lighter as I lay in the sand staring up in space at the beautiful and extraordinary scenery.
Finally, the beach at sunset is my favorite place in nature because it reminds me of all the things I am thankful for in life. After looking at the splendid sky with great glorification and awe, I cannot help but think about the Almighty, Creator of this bewildered sunset. This just leads me into thinking for all the things He has done for me in his majesty, and how I am forever grateful for them.
I feel appreciative for the eyes that let me take sight of this natural beauty, the heart that let me feel the warm feeling when at the beach, and the family as well as friends that I can spend great times with at the beach. For me, this is one of the best feelings in the world, as at the end of the day, it allows me to dwell on all the things I love and that I am truly grateful for.
In conclusion, if I could, I would spend every evening at the beach and watch the sunset. There is no other place in the world that forces me to feel so calm and tranquil, that I can enjoy at any time of the year. The beach, especially at sunset, is the best place for me to relax and get my mind off things that worry or disturb me, as well as be grateful for all I have in life. I completely agree with Thoreau and his optimistic attitude towards nature, as it truly answers all of my life’s questions.
