Rise and set

Here are a few images of sunrise and sunset from my travels, or closer to home.

First, a couple from the Gironde a couple of years ago to show the changing early morning sky over a period of 7 minutes (alas, I wasn’t in quite the same position when I took these two images!):

The blue hour, 07.16

Sun just rising, 07.23

Sun starting to go down over Havana, more than a decade ago:

…and here’s a sunset from a ship, always stunning:

…and finally the ruby orb that I missed the other night, but I did catch the intense red sky that followed it:

  1. My favourite is the second one, Sue, though I’d settle for Havana right now. I don’t suppose it’s changed much. 🙂 🙂

  2. Especially struck by the Havana photo – the shadowy decay of the city in contrast to the light on the sea. Cities by oceans are always exciting.

  3. I tend to prefer sunsets to sunrises. Mainly because I don’t have to get up early to see them. 🙂
    The shot from the ship is lovely.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Sunrises and sunsets are forever changing and beautiful. I never get tired watching them.

  5. These are beautiful Sue – but left me kind of sad that you missed the precursor to the ruby orb, which is truly amazing!!!

  6. No matter where we are in the world the sun and sky can put on spectacular shows twice a day. The vibrant red in the last one Sue is really stunning.

  8. Very beautiful photographs, Sue.

  9. Oh what an exciting place Havana must’ve been 10 years ago (still is) what amazing photos you must have of the place. Love all these images Sue
