    Sun

    I was in Florida during the summer and every morning and night the dolphins would click and the sum would be in the gorgeous horizon! Makes you think that you really have a great life

    Sunlight

    It was Saturday morning and I was still sleeping. I rolled over and was kissed by the sunlight on my face. It filled me with a warmth completely undescribable. From where I lay I could see a blu bird sitting in a Japanese Maple and it was at that moment that I had realized he...

    I scan the enormous ocean

    which gleamed like a sheet of bluish glass beneath the sunset. Staring at that point where sky and earth meet- at that precise point where the blazing sun slowly goes down, as if to kiss the earth goodbye- I am filled with a sudden sweet, overwhelming melancholy that I need to...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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 cant stop taking pictures of the sunset.

    . but tonights sunset in Brisbane was the most amazing one I've ever seen, spectacular. One one side it looked like a fire and on the other it was pink cotton candy clouds. It was because of a local fire and the cyclones up north. Theres beauty in everything.

    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.
