The Sunset Behind the Mountains


It is not only near the beaches you could see such beautiful colours in the sky, but in the hiil country too. Due to the surrounding mountains the sunset would not last long like near the beach.

This beautiful sunset was taken in Bandarawela on the way from the Lipton Seat. I was here near the edge of the hill for almost an hour till the sun disappear behind the mountain. That was a great evening!
