The Story Behind "Sunsational"
by Brian Klassen
As many of us trudge through the snow in minus double-digit temperatures, it seems appropriate that we present to you a visual of warmth and color. We hope that it warms your spirit and brightens your mood, as it does ours.
As with most of our visuals, they often have a story that brings to life each cloud, water ripple and sun ray. This shot is no different.
If you are a southern traveler and have experienced the warmth and beauty of Naples Florida, you will recognize this landmark. People come from all over the world to see the amazing sunset and experience God’s great creativity together, as they flood the pier to get as close to the sun as possible.
What added to this experience for me was the timing. As you will note, there are no people on the end of the pier, which is unheard of (especially in warm and close-to-perfect weather). This is because the pier was damaged a couple months earlier in one of the biggest hurricanes (Irma) to sweep across the Caribbean, making landfall right where we were standing. We traveled all around the area and the devastation was still plainly in site, reminding me of my smallness in the face of such great power. It also brought to mind all those still dealing with the struggle of rebuilding loss.
This picture touches my heart and reminds me of the hope that is available, both during good times and times of devastation.
Let your eyes look directly in front of you and let your gaze look straight before you. - Proverbs 4:25
