SUNRISE and SUNSET

Very pretty sunrise this morning, thought I’d share!

I’ve kissed the sun good morning or good night plenty of throughout my life. Don’t know which I like better. Mornings are a fresh start, evening is hope for tomorrow.

I didn’t know this but there is a song called “Kissing the Sun” by The Young Gods. It’s a single on their 1995 album ONLY HEAVEN. Don’t know anything about it… I googled “kissing the Sun” and that popped up.

Mornings at the beach are the best, but mountain sunrises are pretty close. Don’t really know which I prefer.

Do you know what makes the sunrise or sunset so pretty? Natural and man made pollution causes the colorful sunrises and sunsets. Water molecules and dust are also to blame. During the day, the effect is minimal due to the amount of atmosphere the sunlight has to travel through.

I have more photos of sunsets than I do sunrises.

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”

-Jo Walton

I love this quote and it’s absolutely true!

SUNSETS

Red sky at night, sailors delight

Red sky in morning, sailors take warning.

I think just about everyone has heard this saying. I think it’s true. It means that if the sky is red in the morning it’s going to be a bad day to sail. But if the sky is red at night, it’s going to be good weather.
