Relax In 4 Minutes! Enjoy Setting Sun On Tampa Bay Florida At My Home & ...



Moody on Monday? Wishing weekend was longer? Sensing stress? Take 4 minutes to stop what you're doing, and come sit by my swimming pool at my Apollo Beach, Florida, home.
Watch a stunning golden sunset form over Tampa Bay, while a relaxing tune 'Lovers Seeking Moonlight' ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ntrance-to-tunnel-of-love/id1090633937# ) soothes your jangled nerves, and relaxes your soul.
Watch the speed at which the wind carries the clouds. This is not a timelapse. It is the actual speed the wind was carrying them. That is why I left the sound of the wind in the video a little bit. Watch the pelicans fly by you, and ospreys hover above you.
Enjoy and buy some music from my CD, "nTrance To Tunnel Of Love". Check it out at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ntrance-to-tunnel-of-love/id1090633937 . I give 100% of the proceeds to charity.
Let me know how you feel. And share with your friends who could use some R&R regardless of where they are stuck!

HappilySingle™ vs Open Marriage vs Fake Monogamy - IMRAN™

I'm happily single, never married. I would consider marrying the person I fall in love with deep enough but do not feel the need to be married for the sake of being married.

I also joke that I am waiting to find my fourth beloved so that I can marry all four of my future wives together. (Muslim joke).

The reason I created the HappilySingle™ brand was to ridicule the fallacy of society's "Happily Married" marketing of an obsolete failure of an institution, marriage. 50% end in divorce as we all know.

I believe at least 25% others are having affairs. Another 12.5% are staying together unhappily for the sake of the kids, or out of fear, or because divorce would be economically impractical.

In my opinion, maybe 12.5% couples can fall under the happily married umbrella.

I would ask the married ones among you which category you fall under but for obvious reasons no one would be able to speak the full truth.

I do have dear friends here who are in beautiful open marriages. So, when I saw this article in The New York Times, I had to share it here and ask your opinions on all of these...the institution of marriage versus non-traditional marriages, non-marriage relationships (that often last longer than real marriages) or just staying Happily Single!

Tell me what you all think.

Dusk Dolphins Diving - IMRAN™



Delightful deep colors of dusk filled sea and sky on Tampa Bay, Florida, as I stood on my dock at sunset. A couple Dolphins headed home for the night after feeding and I could see and hear the rippling of their diving mixed with the sound of water waves and the silence of light waves.

Magical Layers Of Sunset At Tampa Bay Florida - IMRAN™

Magical Layers Of Sunset At Tampa Bay Florida - IMRAN™
What magic Tampa Bay Florida sunsets reveal in layers that I am blessed to see.
The base photo of this image is SOOC (straight out of camera) of my 10 years old Nikon D300. No editing. No color tweak of ANY kind. No filters. It was simply cropped and I added text to fit it into a FaceBook Cover Photo format.

Start At "The End" At The End Of Day : Montauk NY 360° Winter Drive Music Video - IMRAN™


Montauk (which means The End) in New York is always a fun place to visit, by car, plane or yacht. As the sun began to set at Montauk Lighthouse, on the eastern tip of Long Island, New York, I decided to do a quick 360° video recording, as I drove from the Lighthouse parking lot to a scenic outlook spot on the way home.
360 degree cameras like the Nikon KeyMission 360 have a hard time blending the two completely separate images from the two sides of the camera when the sun is setting. Because the exposure and aperture are very different so a noticeable banding can be seen at the seams.
But, with a sped up video and a music track I created just for this video, I think you will love coming along with me for a winter drive in New York at sunset. Enjoy the full 360x360° view!
