Sunset in the Lantern Illusion

Sunsets are a source of fascination and intrigue for many people, myself included. The peace and quiet you can sometimes feel during a sunset is just amazing, especially after a long and stressful day. As the day winds down and the sun starts to hide for the night, the light starts to dim and the world just seems to start to settle. That is also the time when most of us start to rely on alternate sources of light. These days, we have easy and convenient electric lights, but at one time, candles and lanterns were the go-to light sources after dark. I love this sunset in a lantern illusion, partly because I love sunsets and partly because there’s something so intriguing and alluring about the aniquated feel of an old lantern…


To me, this lantern illusion brings together two very beautiful things—the peace you can sometimes feel as the day winds to a close and the remnants of a simpler time. I don’t know about any of you, but I still have a few of these old lanterns left. They come in pretty handy during power outages, for sure, but they’re also nice to break out some nights just for the heck of it.
