During Sunsets for Kate, I have invited others to share a sunset story. This post is from one of the very first to share a sunset with me.
Gabrielle Tozer from Sydney, Australia
Where and when was the sunset taken?
Wagga Wagga, Australia on January 1, 2017.
Why were you inspired to capture that moment?
Short answer: it was spectacular. Long answer: It was spectacular and I wanted to remember the moment. I was visiting my parents over Christmas and became a little obsessed with snapping photos of the sunrise on my morning walk around Lake Albert and of the sunset after we finished our dinners. So, on the evening of New Year’s Day, I peeked through the blinds and gasped at the colours.
Deep pinks, burnt reds, fierce yellows … I needed it in my collection!
I grabbed my iPhone and sprinted along the hot gravel down to the lake – in barefoot, mind you! It was worth it, though.
And finally, you and I have not yet met. If we could meet and share a sunset drink anywhere in the world, where would that be? Wish as if anything is possible.
You never know, a sunset fairy may just grant us this sunset wish!
I clearly love a gobsmackingly beautiful sunset over the water … so let’s go all out and share a sunset drink in the Maldives! Why not, right?
This photo is not the Maldives, but also from Lake Albert in Wagga Wagga.
Yes, the Maldives, why not indeed. Thank you to Gabrielle for not only being one of the first to share a sunset with me, but also one of the first to agree to a guest sunset post.
As well as sunsets, I would miss books if I could no longer see and have been reading many young adult fiction books lately with the intention of then passing them on to my kids. At the moment I am reading Gabrielle’s first novel, The Intern*.
It felt special to go to a local bookshop (hello to Gateway Bookshop) where I am known by name, to buy a book also by a local (well, once upon a time local) author who they dearly love and support.
I look forward to celebrating the release of your two new books this year Gabrielle (Remind Me How This Ends, and Peas and Quiet) when you next visit ‘home’. And then hopefully enjoying that sunset drink in the Maldives.
Gabrielle can be found … everywhere!
