I Love Sunsets and Sunrises

    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...

    If you sit in a quiet meditative state .

    .. as the sun slowly emerges over the horizon ... you can feel the energy shift ... as the earth greets another day with "open arms".

    I was driving to work this morning

    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.

    This photo has little

    if any artistic value. So why have I posted it?As a reminder to myself to not postpone a moment to a later time.As I turned onto the road to my home I saw a stunning sunset across the open field. The sun was a giant orange ball whose bottom edge was grazing the top of the...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Mostly sunrises. Mornings are the best times,

    especially just before dawn. its quiet, cool and fresh and the impending sunrise is eagerly anticipated. Theres nothing better than sitting outside, sipping coffee as the sun comes up.

    I was on my normal route

    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...

    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! 💕

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Orange Sunset #1I was procrastinating my daily

    walk all day, until just before sunset.  Was tempted to call it a day and skip the walk, but then decided to brave the cold and walk around the lake.  So glad I did!

    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 :)
