Sunset over Xian

At the end of my recent trip to China, I was standing in the departure lounge of Xian airport, waiting for boarding, when I noticed a plane pass in my view with the setting sun in the background.

The sky changed colors quickly as the sun began to drop into the horizon, between the trees.

It was a splendid sight.

Setting suns are not only ending to a day, but often are like endings to an experience, a feeling, a desire, or just the hope of a new and even better day.

Sun is stronger than the winds. Dont you think so?

Ever heard the story how the sun won over the winds?

No. Please tell me, Derrick. But I do agree with the metaphoric thought
