Mother Nature is bleeding crimson because of this extreme heatwave!

The sunset was absolutely beautiful and despite the extreme heatwave, it’s always the best opportunity to seize the moment.

The Beautiful Sunset of Whitstable Beach, Kent.

My auntie took these photos of the beautiful sunset 3 years back, but just by looking at these photos the sunset is absolutely beautiful, no matter what the angle. The reflection of the sunset shines down on the sea and gives off a sparkle, bouncing the reflection of the sunset off the sea.

The tide in most of the photos have gone out perfectly, forming a near-silhouetted landscape, leaving behind it trails of dirt, seaweed and rocks. The sunset up close hides itself behind the clouds, lighting up the cloudy sky.

The sunset in the centre of the photo makes the whole concept of the photo beautiful, as it is in full focus, perfectly in centre, and also shines down on the ground, directing a ray of sunlight onto the sea. This photo was perfect, as the sunset captured land at its darkest, and also darkened what looked like a building underneath it.

In the background on a few of the photos, you can see the boats are left from where the owners of the boats have left them after a days use. The sunset in these photos are out of this world, as the sunset close-up darkens almost the whole sky around it, as you can see one part of the sunset up close is a bright red-pink colour and that the other part of the sunset is a bold, vivid and bright yellow sun.

Overall, I thought the outcome of these photos that my auntie took were fantastic, the photography is beautiful, and I wanted to share these sunset photos to the world.

Tomorrow, I will upload a video of the sunset photos to YouTube, and I’ll also make the video available to watch from this blog via a new blog post.

Thank you for reading this post. I really appreciated the time you took to read about the beautiful sunset of Whitstable Beach, Kent.
