Sunset views from Gili Trawangan

The sunsets are worth a whole post on their own.

I mean just look at these views… and colours… (can you feel the stillness?)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What you are seeing here is the sunset view from the small, idyllic island of Gili Trawangan across to the enchanting island of Bali.

The majestic volcano, Mount Agung, looms large across the ocean and its pyramid shape is reflected in the warm seas…


Mount Agung is a very important volcano for the Balinese and, high up on its slopes, is the ‘Mother Temple’, called Besakih.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mount Agung last erupted in 1963 with lava flowing a distance of 7 kilometers down its slopes devasting many villages and killing some 1500 people.

The lava narrowly missed the Mother Temple, Besakih, sometimes by mere yards!

Ok, that was the orangey, golden glow sunset views… now check out Gili Trawangan’s pinky coloured sunsets…


A seriously pink sky reflects upon the water, making the sea also look pink.


The above photo is looking from Gili Trawangan across to its neighbouring small island called Gili Meno (Gili Air, the 3rd of the 3 small tropical islands, is just beyond Gili Meno and closer to the mainland of Lombok).OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Beyond the cloud Lombok’s Mount Rinjani shows itself.


Fancy a sunset swim in a pink sea anyone?
