After looking at many of the pictures I’ve posted on my blog, Facebook page, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram a friend informed me that he noticed my interest (or obsession rather) with the sky and the horizon. I guess he has a valid point! I love taking pictures of sunrises and sunsets! Second to the beach, I’ve always had an interest in taking pictures of the skyline. In every destination that I visit, I make an attempt to see at least one sunrise and one sunset. Yet, by the end of trip I’ve seen at least a half a dozen or so.
Is one sunrise the same as another sunrise? Is one sunset comparable to another sunset? For me, they are never the same or comparable. Each has a new view and provides me with a new and unique experience. Almost magical. Watching the sun rise while walking along a melecon with a cup of warm tea is the perfect wake up call. Watching the sun set from the beach with an appetizer and a blanket is the perfect end to the perfect day in paradise. I’d watch the sun rise and set every day if I could. They are often just as beautiful at home as they are away, but each leaves me speechless. What a wonderful world we live in. Nature has her own special way of surprising us.
