The Last Bursts of Daylight

Our plane to Malaysia was less than ten minutes from landing and the "fasten seatbelt" sign was glowing brightly above me, but as soon as I saw this spectacle outside the window I instantly unbuckled, grabbed my camera, and leaped over the person sitting beside me into the empty window seat. Glowing pink and indigo, these last moments of sunlight sparkled in the ocean water, a fleeting spectacle of color forever ingrained in my memory.
