What is it about a sunset that makes it so compelling? Yes, sunsets are often beautiful. Perhaps as Tennyson realized, a sunset serves as a metaphor for the end. Prosaically, it is the end of the day. And inevitably the sun will rise, then set, the next day. So it is also part of a cycle, and that is what life is a beginning, an end, and cycles in between. But for now, you can leave such deep thoughts and enjoy the timeless beauty of Galapagos sunsets.

"'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite the sounding furrows;
for my purpose holds to sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
of all the Western stars, until I die."
Lord Alfred Tennyson, 1842
