Sunset at Curacao Island Beach

May 26, 2011 | Sunrises & Sunsets, Travel & Culture

I’ve been posting too many gloom and doom photos lately and I think it’s been affecting my health… “cough.” I truly believe that what we see affects our mood and well being. Starting today I’m going to post more pleasant photos until I start feeling better.

The first health rejuvenating photo to be posted is from Curacao. This HDR photo was the first shot taken when I arrived at the hotel. It was one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen… and I’ve seen a lot!

For anyone looking to get away to paradise, I would highly recommend Curacao. The beaches are beautiful, the people are great and the food is amazing. For photographers… you have so much to shoot you better book a week to get it all in!
