    I would so love just to have a group of friends,

    or that one friend where you just sit & watch the sunset or sunrise. Forgetting about the world's troubles, being so incredibly comfortable around them, being so connected & free :) just gazing at the sky, admiring the world's beauty, living in that moment, thankful for the...

    Omg. The sun kind of peeked through the

    clouds today. And helped melt a little bit of the snow. It took 2 hrs to dig out my car. I'm ready for some warm weather.

    Sun Art!!!

    Just played with the colors of the sun to create these images. All these images are from one single dull shot of the setting sun, from behind the curtains. The Image is then exploited on different shades of color on basic iphoto software provided by Apple products.

    Normal Day... Or So I Thought

    I arrive at my office this morning, first one in just like a hundred mornings before. I setup my desk, check e-mail and get ready to start the day. I get up to open the blinds to the outside and then I notice… the sky is almost a burning color of brilliant red. It seems alive...

    Best view in the morning

    while your driving! I could sit and enjoy for a long hours if I have too! But need to do for a living. :-(

    Phoenix Az Has Great Sunsets

    It is one the great things about living in the valley of the sun, the sunsets can be spectacular.   My icon is a picture I took from my backyard.  We had another good one tonight, but my camera isn't working, I need to get a new one soon.

    Hawaii

    The most beautiful sunset I ever experienced was in Waikiki. I was lying in a tube floating in the ocean as the soft hula music played in the background. The sun was setting as I watched it go down. I thought to myself that at that moment I felt so serene. It was truly a...

    There's Few Things As Beautiful

    I really love to watch both.  I especially love the sunsets on the coast.  The reflection of the sun on the water in the distance.  The various reds, oranges, and yellows.  It's mesmerizing and somewhat hypnotizing. Sunrises in the country are also a favorite...

    I guess everyone loves them

    but I find a special kind of peace when I am sitting on the edge of the ocean as the sun rises or sets. If I was a painter I would only paint these kind of views! It doesn't matter where you are, in a city by the water or the caribbean or anywhere. This is such a special time...

    I love the sunrise. I used to could wake up to

    a smell of coffee and go outside the front door and never fail to see my mother in her chair outside in the dark blue sky waiting for the sun to rise. So I would make me a cup of coffee and go enjoy it with her. What I wouldn't do to have my mother back. No the only thing I can...

    Equinox Sunset

    Some years ago I came across the fact that at the equinoxes, the sun rises due East and sets due West. This fact is believed to have been used in prehistoric times to measure the passing of a year. Two poles set a few yards apart along an East west line will cast their shadows on...

    There's something magical about running along

    the levee and watching the sun slowly rise out of the water. Feeling it warm my face. At the end of the day when the sun melts into the water, it makes me think if I listen hard enough I can almost hear the sizzle as it touches down.

    One of the many things on my Bucket list has been to sit on a beach and watch both the sun rise in the morning and set in the evening and do so on the same day. The good news is that this is easy to do in Florida, both coasts a quick drive apart.Β  My journey would be 132.8...

    Australian Sunrise

    The garbled dawn chorus of magpies, the hint of lemon myrtle and eucalyptus, as the sun makes its grand entrance. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else right now.

    The sun is the most magical beautiful thing in

    the entire universe. There is a great ball of fire 3 million times the size of earth floating in space that keeps everything that has been and will be alive. It is just the right distance away that we don't freeze and not so close we all burn. It creates light so we can explore...

    I used to live on a farm

    and just about sunset I would hike about a half a mile into the corn fields and I would sit upon a large hill and mediate as the sun was setting. It was really peaceful, crickets chirping in the background, a slight wind usually blowing against me, and the low light would make...

    It's Only Natural

    I have always loved sunrises and sunsets, even if I have not made enough time to watch them as I would have liked. Sunrises, after all, do tend to be a bit early. I think I have watched as more sunrises after being awake all night than I have from getting up early enough to...

    than sunset!! Unless there's a heavy overcast! The best sunsets are when it's been raining but the clouds open just enough to let the last few minutes of the day in! πŸ’•

    At this time of year,

    the sun is coming up on my way to work. The winter months of wearing loads of layers is slowly coming to an end. The sky takes on fabulous colours, especially at sunset.

    The death of light, the rebirth of the sun!

    How it used to be viewed, I guess. Apollo returns his favour! Sunsets are beautiful to view, mellowing after the perfect day. Sunrises fill you with awe and wonderment, a new day is here in which to find happiness again.
