Here comes the sun

Weather

Here comes the sun. That’s the theme for the Lens-Artists Challenge, hosted this week by Amy. As I browsed through my collection of sunrises and sunsets, I decided to focus on the rich variety of colours and mood displayed at either end of the day. It’s not always easy to tell which are morning, and which evening. It’s not always easy to decide which images to choose. I’ve gone for a bargain basement pick-and-mix selection, from England, Europe and beyond. Because we all share the same sun, the same sky.

      1. Ours was rather unusual. We are often lucky enough to enjoy vast sunsets that fill our huge skies but last night’s was a narrow but especially vibrant strip along the horizon. Deep shades of orange and pink , augmented with the silhouettes trees on the skyline. Beautiful!

  1. Beautiful photos. This evening’s sunset is 7:38. Only 22 minutes earlier than two weeks ago. I wonder if the time of the year or latitude makes any difference in the sunset as it appears to us? And you didn’t label your photos making me wonder where each one is. Thank you.

    1. I deliberately didn’t label them in this case because – well, the location had little impact on their beauty. Several were from vey neat to home.

  2. Lovely photos in their own right but even more so grouped in this gallery – an overdose of sunrises and sunsets! And yes, we all share the same sun and would do well to remember that fact more often πŸ™‚

    1. I did rather OD on sunrises and sunsets, didn’t I? I just couldn’t choose. And yes, we could all do with remembering that all of us share the same world, and should be sharing the same resources.

    1. Isn’t it wonderful that you have gathered, through your challenge, sun pictures from throughout the world, and we have all demonstrated that it shines its beauty everywhere?

  4. Sharing the same sun – a lovely thought to go with your beautiful images of the sun Margaret. I loved them all, proving perfectly that any time of day can be extraordinary. Terrific post!

  5. Thanks. And just after I’d posted we had THE most dramatic sunset, which would certainly have found a place. But Nature puts on these shows most days!
