Today’s submission is inspired by sunsets and sunrises. There is something magical about a sunset. As evening approaches I find myself looking out to see if the sky will light up and draw me down to the beach to watch the sun slowly descend beyond view. Some evenings the sunset is so vibrant people stop, pull their car over and jump out to catch a glimpse of the end of the day. It’s fascinating how we are drawn to sunsets more so than sunrises. Recently though I’ve fallen in love with the sunrise. It’s difficult to get out of bed in the dark and cold to see the sunrise, but it’s so worth it. Watching the sun peek over the horizon or peek over the mountains restores my soul. The color before sunrise changes gradually from its cool edge to a warm, vibrant center. It bathes everything in beauty and it changes moment to moment, East to West. I’ve become a light chaser since I moved to the beach. Everyday is a new opportunity to see something new and I love it! Below are three of my favorite sunrise photos. I was out testing a new toy, my watershot housing for my iPhone. It was a great day. Which one do you like best? The light is different in each one and the colors are phenomenal. It was a beautiful sunrise.
Today is the first anniversary of the Phoneography Challenge by Lens and Pens by Sally. I’ve only been participating for a short time, but I enjoy participating in part because it keeps me blogging and it inspires me. I also enjoy this community and the people I’ve come to know through their submissions. Thanks Sally and congratulations!
