Sunsets (And Sunrise) Photos

I don't think seeing beautiful sunsets, or a sunrises, ever gets old. Just thought I'd share some recent sunsets in SE Oklahoma. Please feel free to share your own! I'd love to see them!

The anvil cloud/paler sunset is from earlier in the summer. The OH WOW colors are from last weekend. I'd worked on a rent house all day, knocked off to head home, pulled out on the road heading west and my jaw dropped.

Beautiful pictures, where I live in Southern Ontario we have some truly spectacular sunrises and sunsets, I try to remember to look out the west window to see how the sunset is progressing on that day. I also like to be up early enough to see the sunrises.
Loved your pictures

Here is a sunset from this past rainy season. Taken from the rooftop laundry area of our place in town. What struck me is that this was the eastern sky at sunset. The setting sun was behind me, reflecting off of these clouds.

All I can say is we all live in a beautiful world...
Each shared picture is a work of art and Mother Natures glory.

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I think sometimes a picture can't do the scene justice. Here is an entry from a journal I kept back in '08, when I was a long haul trucker.

I titled it: Sunrise on the Continental Divide

I start driving in theearly hours of the morning. This morning found me driving east near the linebetween Arizona and New Mexico. Soon the eastern sky lightens enough to see afew wispy clouds above the horizon. The dark night sky gives way to a pale,pearly gray as the sun nears the edge of the earth. It is late spring. Thesunís arrival will be slow and stately.

The bottoms of the
cloudsclosesttothe horizon turn a soft rose color to begin the pageant. Thedarkness slowly retreats and the color spreads to more clouds. The sky is lightenough now that I can make out a stair step line of bluffs on the easternhorizon. The farthest clouds still hold the rosy color, but the nearer onesbegin to turn red, then orange. The sky where the orb will appear is drained ofcolor, as if the sun will allow no competition near it. More western clouds take on the rose color. Theeasternmost clouds continue to change to mark the approach of the sun. Theorange clouds turn fiery, then brighten to yellow, then white, pushing theorange and red to still more clouds further west.

The stair step horizon is blurred in the brightness as the disk peeks over it.Smaller bluffs to the southwest emerge from the darkness. Normally baked a dullred in full daylight, their morning faces are
softer. Richer. Theclouds to the far west finally change from gray to rose to greet the sun. Thedisk clears the horizon line. The eastern line of bluffs, now free from theobscuring rays, also show their red faces. The full landscape begins to emergefrom the mists and shadows.

I travel through this scene at highway speeds. First past irrigated croplands,deep green springing from the rich, red earth. Next through scrub coveredflatlands. The soft light coaxes out every imaginable shade and hue of green,brown, and violet. The scrublands give way to an angry place of broken blackrock that seems to have boiled out of the earth in some harsh and ancient time.Gradually, the scrublands reclaim the landscape, surrounded by the flat bluffsto the east, and sharp rocky hills to the south and west. The last shreds ofmist take refuge in the lee of the eastern bluffs, once more obscuring theirfaces. The sun is now a hands breadth above the horizon. Iíve traveled about 80miles. My coffee has grown cold, and Iíve forgotten to eat my breakfast. A lotof folks say that driving out west is boring. Iím very, very happy that I donítlive in their world.

Ugh, the cut and paste ran a bunch of words together. Sorry about that.
