Sunset at Gunung Masigit

Two weeks ago, I went on a short hiking and climbing trip to Gunung Masigit (lit. Mt. Mosque, 2078 meters above sea level), a limestone mountain near Padalarang in West Bandung Regency. The trip was part of a one-day tracking tour of pre-historic Bandung organized by our friends at Mahanagari (I'm going to write a complete story about it later).

It was near sunset when we got to the top, and rainy, which was quite a disappointment because we had wanted to enjoy the beauty of the sunset from there. So, while waiting for the rain to stop, we took shelter in a makeshift hut prepared by some previous climbers. Some twenty minutes later, the rain subsided and the sun began to appear again on the horizon. This is one of the photos I could manage to take from the hut before the rain completely stopped.

This post is Bandung Daily Photo's participation in this week's Skywatch Friday. Please follow the link to check other participating blogs' posts.

It seems so rare to see yellow skies. I was lucky to see similar yellow skies last week, but at sunrise. (Posted with last week's skywatch)

I like the close-up of the weeds with the hazy mountains in the distance.


When planets plummet
And comets careen,
It’s the strangest sight
You ever have seen.

When drunk stars stagger
And comets collide,
It’s time to look up
As you go outside

To stare at the sky
Where the strangest sight
Is the moon-faced thing
That you see at night.

That picture looks amazing. I think it is worth it to climb to Gunung Masigit and see sunsets like these.
