With Cozumel currently in the rear view mirror for the next little while, we are looking back at our time there with the fondest of memories. We loved exploring the island. We had many wonderful days exploring the underwater attractions, the beautiful beaches and the Mayan Ruins hidden in the jungle. When we look back at our time here, the thing we will remember most are the sunsets.
We have to keep reminding ourselves that we are only leaving the island for a little bit. We can always come back. Cozumel isn’t going anywhere. We have so many incredible memories and most of our best days on the island have a sunset as an exclamation point. We recently got married on the island, and when it came time to propose there was only one backdrop worthy of this moment. This post has a little bit extra love sprinkled in because “that” sunset is in here too!
We like to consider ourselves sunset enthusiasts. As often as possible, you will find us down on the water somewhere waiting for the show to begin. We have seen a lot of sunsets on the island, and as the title of this post suggests, this isn’t the first of its kind.
Stay a little longer and watch the comet
If we’re the first to tell you about this, we’re sorry! You missed a chance to see a pretty cool celestial event in the night sky. Over the past few weeks, the comet Neowise made its closest approach to the Sun and then the Earth. We were made aware of this event and made plans to go out for a few pictures of the comet.
Most importantly, we were lucky to get a few clear nights during its closet approach to earth. It was very hard to capture with the naked eye and we needed to do a few long exposure shots to capture it. This comet is a long period comet, so as it now moves further from the inner solar system, it will not be back for another 6500 years. We envy this space travelers journey around the galaxy!
We’re still learning about long exposure photography, so unfortunately we didn’t get anything too mind blowing here. It was still a fun experience to see something that has been invisible to humans for thousands of years out in the far reaches of the solar system. It was a nice bonus to an already beautiful sunset.
The rest of these sunsets really don’t need much of an introduction. We’ve had a lot of great memories watching the sun go down on this tropical island paradise. The island has shown us a lot of incredible colours and a lot of love. We think you will agree, Cozumel is a great place to watch the sun go down.
