    I love to see the sky at the rebirth of the sun.

    The way just before the sun begins to rise it seems to be the darkest hour. Then is the explosion of light!

    I saw my first sunrise

    when I was really little. The only time I see them now is when I'm either on vacation or I am having trouble sleeping. I like sunrises more than sunsets, not sure why. I took this picture yesterday.

    The first minute glimmer of light appearing on

    the horizon. So small that you think perhaps it is your imagination. But as large as a millions candles. Blooming into an ocean of roses strewn across the sky. Reflecting the hope for the new day.

    i have been half way around the world.

    i have seen the sun rise over deserts, artic plains, battlefields and tropical seas. it is always a great pleasure to have time to watch it come up. but the best place is always sitting in my back garden in the peace and quiet with a coffee.

    Sunsets are completely overrated. I will always choose to watch a sunrise over a sunset. There's just something peaceful and calming about a sunrise that a sunset will never be able to hold for me.
