Sunrises & Sunsets

I’ve been posting alot of heavy-thinking type posts lately - so let me make up for that.

Here’s one that is meant to be complete eye-candy.  I went through all my photos from the trip over the last year and tried to find the best sunrise & sunset photos.  It wasn’t easy - as evidenced by the number of them.

It’s amazing to me how beautiful and similar yet different the same basic ingredients (sun either coming up or going down, a perspective type view, and often a water feature) can be in a photo.

I think my favorites are from New Mexico (for the sheer scale and color) and Arizona (almost as good color-wise but with great natural features to frame in the photo as well).  I can’t rule out my own West Michigan however - if not purely for sentimental reasons.

Take a look, and see what you think.  What do you think the best areas of the country for sunrises and sunsets?

    Oh, Columbus for sure!  The close runners up are Hunting Island and anything with a saguaro. Although all are beautiful.
