    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.  My journey would be 132.8...

    Saturday evening, I took a drive

    after a long day of work. I knew it was going to be a nice sunset, so drove to one of my favorite nearby places. I listened as the water crashed on the rocks, listened to the wind blow through the leafless trees and heard the seagulls, ducks and geese as they flew about. I am...

    It was raining tonight

    as the sun was setting, the horizon aflame with the after glow of the day, the burning vermilion globe gloriously descending, lighting the line of the horizon ablaze before dripping, melting and disapearing to ascend elsewhere while we are given darkness. I looked at the rain...

    I love walking along the beach

    or just sitting and holding your special someone and enjoying these types of moments in life. The most innocent of things in life tend to be the most intimate and amazing times.

    Orange light filtered through the trees

    and sun's reflection on the lake. It's totally worth it to stop running and capture such breathtaking moments... This photo now, is clearly in need of the right caption. Be creative ☺️with the comments if any 😉

    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.

    I think sunsets are one of the most precious

    gift given by the creator of the universe or earth or whatever. I find that evenings are the best time of the days. The sunsets are AMAZING! I could spend my whole evening strolling or taking pictures of the sunset with some perfect music :)

    There's a district in San Francisco called "The

    Sunset". It sits along the western edge of the City, along the ocean and inland for a few miles. The sunrises have been breathtaking. I wanted to share what awakened joy I felt each morning during the stretch of hypercolored sunrises. That's Sutro Tower on the horizon.

    Ok, so I prefer sunsets to sunrises mainly

    because I'm not much of a morning person. I took this photo on my adventure a couple days ago, and thought I'd share. This photo also resonated with a friend here, so I'm also posting it again for her :-)

    my favorite sunset memory was from waayyy back

    in college, driving back up the Mexican coast with a couple of friends. the colors were soo much richer... more vibrant than any other. maybe it was the company or just the freedom of that spontaneous trip.

    and something caught my eye in the rear view mirror. It was the kind of sunrise you just have to stop and take a picture of.

    I love sunsets more then I do sunrises.

    I guess I've never really been a morning person. I love the sunsets here in Colorado. Watching the sun go behind the mountain. Truly breathtaking.

    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...

    Breathtaking SunsetDarkness fell quickly,

    extinguishing glowing embers which had billowed across the early autumn sky.Replaced by cooler hues, the beautiful array of warm colours remains burned in my mind's eye.
