Sunrise Sunset – Photo Challenge

For the Daily Post’s Photo Challenge this week, a few photos of sunrise and sunset from my corner of the world. While I rise every day before dawn, I am rarely outside to capture the sunrise. The best I can do is this spectacular view on my drive to work and the view through my windshield (captured on my iPhone).


Working dawn to dusk certainly has its perks when it comes to the ambience of the fiery sky at sunset. Especially in Winter, I am often blown away by the beauty that greets me when I head for my car after work. On this particular December day, several of us were stopped in our tracks by a sunset that lit the sky red in various hues over the course of a few minutes. Fortunately, I had my iPhone on me and captured a few shots. You don’t see a sky like this every day.


and just a few minutes later as the sun faded over the mountains…this…


It occurs to me that sunrises and sunsets are only spectacular through the prism of clouds. There’s a message in that thought somewhere. I’m going to think on that for a while. 🙂
