What could be better for this week’s photo challenge than Sunrise and Sunset? It’s impossible to pick just one picture so I will give you a few of my favorites from recent travels.
I’m not much of a morning person so I don’t often get many of these. But a couple of years ago we were on the island of Kauai (my first and only time) when a hurricane was forecasted to land early the next morning. Needless to say I slept light and arose early enough the next day to catch this wonderful sunrise. Fortunately the hurricane failed to materialize.
This next picture was taken in Florence over the Siuslaw River on a trip to the Oregon Coast last year. According to my husband, the early riser, it started out in shades of brilliant red. Still, I was happy to catch the unfolding golden colors over the river.
No early rising necessary, so I have quite a few more pictures of the sun setting in my collection, which makes it very hard to choose just two. But here you go. The first is from Lincoln City during the same trip to the Oregon Coast last year. You can’t lose with a sunset over the ocean.
But they’re pretty spectacular at the Grand Canyon too, where I took this photo last fall.
That is all.
