    There's no better time in the day other

    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! 💕

    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...

    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.

    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.

    I'm so in love with the sunsets

    and sunrises~! I wish I have a camera so I can take lots of picture of them and print them out so I can hang them in my room. Sunsets that hides behind trees and some clouds (try and imagine the image!) and rivers that reflects the sunset/sunrise :* that would be amazing to...

    I have been mesmerized

    and blessed with many breathtaking sunsets. When I look into the sunset I see a picture with crashing waves, sandy beaches for miles, magnificent rocks, and the colours of peace. I wish I could paint, because the picture I see in a sunset is truly a gift. My mind absorbs in...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    the sunset once a day, just once though... Maybe watch the sunrise twice x3

    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.

    One of my great experiences is

    when my boyfriend and I went on our first date and I had my first kiss as we were watching the sunset! It was wonderful and I will never forget it.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    for the day during the set of the sun. I knew it was sunset not only by the time of day but by the beautiful hues of red on the tree tops and hill side. I was excited and saddened at the same time, knowing I was driving in the wrong direction to see such a magnificent sun behind...

    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...

    Had my coffee this morning.

    Just off I 70 at the Utah Colorado border. I was talking to my Angel on Skype when the sun came up. A spectacular sunrise as you only get out west. I think it has to do with the red dust in the air. I turned on the camera and we shared it. She in Europe and me in Utah. I love...
