    Re: Photo Assignment: Gallery of sunrises and sunsets

    Just got in some pictures from my wife, showing the sunrise in Aalesund this morning, 17. July, 2011 as seen from our son's house. (She is still suffering from jet lag)

    All are shot from 0415 -16 hrs. this morning:








    This last is facing a bit more North East:

      Sunrises and sunsets, Aalsund and Singapore, so very different but so beautiful. I hope your wife is over her jetlag, Ombugge.

          The sunset tonight was as blood red as the stock exchanges around the world today.

            Please do not remind me of the stock market. But, nice sunset.

              That is a glorious sky!…how beautiful and unusual that it is the greyer clouds that seem to be radiating out from where the sun set. And that point is so well positioned in your composition.

              How fortunate to have the view you do! Happily for me it is starting to get to that time of year when the sun sets within leaning out view of an upstairs window! However a tree has grown considerably, and is getting in the way of some of the views of the hills (familiar to those of you that followed “Skyscape” year 1). I have realised that soon I am going to have to get someone to cut back the higher branches!

                  Heres a Sunrise off the Brazilian coast. My apologies for the imperfect image as this was taken by a cell phone camera from inside the bridge. But I just couldnt resist the beautiful colours.

                    Hi Plimsollmark and a big welcome to our friendly forum.
                    I’ve only just got around to saying hello, but I have very much enjoyed your photos and interesting information in the other threads.

                    I really like this sunset – not only are the colours gorgeous, but somehow the “imperfections” don’t seem like imperfections at all but give a very real feeling of being there inside the bridge with you. Love it! (and as you’ll gradually find out, I am very into clouds and skies!!

                              Again, so many beautiful sunsets. Actually "beautiful" is an unnecesssary word, for how can a sunset not have beauty no matter what its colouring? But these are all either spectacular or very interesting because of their composition and a joy to look at. Thank you, all.

                                Fantastic view: I can almost feel how it would be like sitting on the water's edge and looking at that one.
