    During a recent hiking trip to Sedona AZ

    and the Grand Canyon I took many pictures of Sunsets and Sunrises. This one appeals to me the most with its intensity. This was taken at the Airport scenic overview at Sedona.

    I like finding and taking pictures of them too.

    I love the mixture of oranges, reds, pinks, and purples. It's like the sky started off as a blank canvas and then someone decided to dip their paintbrush in their palette and began painting away.

    Still learning the functions of my Nikon P530.

    This sunset was taken with the built in sunset scene function.This sunrise was taken through a small 3 by 2 section of beveled glass of the front door using the same settings.

    The beauty of the sunrise

    and the start of a new day inspire me for what is about to take place. When sunset comes the beautiful day draws near a close and I'm grateful for another day in my life.

    Sunrises: I like sunrises

    because when I get up and look at the sun rising I think of all the possibilities that could happen today. Sunsets: And I like sunsets because 95% of the time it makes me think that I accomplished something and makes me feel proud. Which do you prefer and why? Or why do you...

    It's so beautiful, watching the sky turn orange

    and pink. Watching the sun rise is like the reminder that you are only just beginning your journey, the excitement of a new adventure. Sunsets are so amazing, especially the long ones in the summer that last hours, that was like where i lived as a kid.

    I love to sit back with a glass of wine

    and enjoy the vivid colors of a sunrise or sunset. This pic is a recent sunset.

    In the morning when I go running,

    I run west first, so that when I return, running east, I can watch the sunrise. Running east always seems easier. I sometimes wonder what would happen if I decided to run in the evening instead.

    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 think they are some of the most beautiful

    sights you can see in this life. I look up at them and truly marvel at how much of an artist God really is.

    Not really a sunrise,

    but I was having breakfast this morning and looked out to see a beautiful rainbow. Hard to capture in a photo but here's my attempt.

    I was up early. The house is silent.

    All I can hear are the birds singing as the sky changed from pink to blue. I wish I could fly away with the birds. Freedom. The wind through my feathers. What a breathtaking thought.

    There is nothing that

    so profoundly divides one thing or one time from another then a sunrise or sunset. In my mind at these times there is always two things, "l am done, and, I will begin." And that's why I love these times my brain is doing two things and it's okay. The colors are just an...

    I remember as a child going to the beach I

    would sit there for hours watching the waves move in and out like no care in the world. I would go and watch the sun rise and as the sunset and what pretty sky that it would make. miss thoughts days
