Do you take photos of sunsets or sunrises?

I’m definitely a sunset kind of girl!

And I took these one night this week.

The very next morning, my ‘up at sunrise’ hubby took these to show me what a sunrise looks like.

I decided NOT to edit or alter these in any way so that you can hopefully see the true colors.

(I didn’t even crop!)

We have some beautiful clouds here in Florida that lead to glorious sunsets and sunrises.

I can't pick a favorite - I like both for different reasons! Great pictures tho.

Diane Writes said...

Priceless pictures namemate!

Between sunrise and sunset? I love both but I guess sunrise is the closer to my heart. Why? I always attribute sunrise to new day, new hope, new life.

Thank you for never leaving my shy Beautiful Sunday party :D

Have a Beautiful Sunday and a great week ahead.

Thank you for sharing these pretty photos. I am an early riser and enjoy watching the sun come up from my kitchen window.

I'm a sunset kinda girl too Diane. I love being by the Lake and capturing the moment. You have some great shots here. Happy Sunday to you.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

So beautiful. I think that is so fun that he showed you the sunrise. We had a such a red sunset last night that it reflected so deep in the windows of the house across the street. I am so glad you shared this.

Ruth Welter said...

Hi LD, your sunset photos look amazing, keep up the beautiful photography.

Sunset for me, I like to sleep in as I go to bed late. Your photos are beautiful, I love how the clouds in Florida look like you can reach up and touch them. xo

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

You sure do have some beautiful skies. I think I'd be up early enough to watch the sunrise too. These brightened my day:-)

cucki said...

beautiful pictures...i love the sky so much xx

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Just beautiful. I love pictures of the sky and sunsets. We had a pink sunset here in California just the other night and I called Lucie over to see it. She just couldn't believe it. A pink sky! I am going to show her your pictures!

Introverted Art said...

what a breathtaking sunset. perfect mixture of oranges and purples in the sky.

Linda R said...

What beautiful photos. I have to say I am a Sunset kinda gal. Here in the desert we have the most beautiful sunsets.

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

Those are gorgeous photos! I'm a sunrise kind of girl and because I'm an early riser...way early...I almost never miss seeing one!

Della said...

Beautiful! I am both! I'm an early riser, so I see many sunrises.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

OH, I am definitely a SUNRISE GIRL! I love sunsets, but I am a morning person and FEEL THE CLOSEST to my creativity in the morning....wow...I thought you were in NC; this is FLORIDA???

LOVELY PHOTOS! THANK YOU for coming to visit me today! Anita

Vee said...

I see both. Sunrises are more easily seen as the view to the east is a little more open. We don't see much in the evening because we're tucked down too low below the trees. Your photos, and hubby's too, are wonderful and the color is spectacular!

Danielle said...

Our cloud formations really do help the setting sun put on a show don't they....these were beautiful...tell your husband...nice job...oh...and thanks for including my comment in your post...that was sweet.

DearHelenHartman said...

Sunrise. Sunsets are blocked by neighbors.

Cheryl said...

I've been catching up on your posts. I'm all over the place, but I see sunrises more (before I go back to bed) because trees block the sunset view. But photos are troublesome since power lines are in the way. So usually I just head on over to the beach at sunset and start gabbing with strangers! ha ha..and you're right, you usually find a common thread with them.

BECKY said...

Gorgeous pictures, Diane! I love pictures of sunrise, sunset, and clouds in general! I just posted about that a couple of days ago, with pictures. Stop by if you have a minute!

Donna said...

Those are beautiful! Great captures!

The only time I am out taking photos of sunrises is when I am on vacation, LOL. Otherwise, I stick to sunsets!

eileeninmd said...

I like to watch both the sunrise and sunsets. Your photos are all beautiful and lovely sky captures. Beautiful post, have a happy week ahead.

GrandmaK said...

Love both and your's are just beautiful!!! Wishing you a grand week!!! Cathy

Lavender Cottage said...

Great photos and thanks to your hubby for his contribution to your mosaic.
I'm a sunset person myself and I do love the ones in Florida.

A Garden of Threads said...

Stunning shots!!! I can either, sunrise or sunset...have a wonderful week:)

cynthia lee designs said...

Beautiful sunset and sunrise photos!!

Lorrie Orr said...

Gorgeous colours all around. I'm more of a sunset girl myself. Although the days are shortening so much, soon I'll be up in time to see the sunrise, too. They are both beautiful.

Have a great week.

AntKaybe said...

I'm def a sunset girl but last year I caught the sunrise on St Augustine Beach and drove home across the state to the west coast of Florida and saw the sunset on Manasota Key. That was fun.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Lovely photos! I'm a sunset gal, myself. 'Fraid I don't get up early enough to see many sunrises since I'm a night owl! :-) I love to shoot sunsets.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I like being up for the sunrise, but I don't always make it. (Usually I can stay awake until after the sun sets ;>)!) Both ends of your day are beautiful!

Karen said...

I'm always amazed at the beauty we have in the sky, no matter what the weather. Tonight I gazed up when letting the dog out at 2am to see billions of stars, it seemed.

Great sunrise sunset pics!

Creative Breathing said...

Diane, I can not for the life of me get over the photographs of your yard in Florida. It is so perfectly flat! It's just wonderful! It appeals to my sense of perfection. Now i know I need to move to Florida. I have so enjoyed these cloud photographs. We have such billowy beautiful ones here in Ohio. I must post them one day. Thanks for inspiring always! E

Yael at Home Garden Diggers said...

These are absolutely wonderful photos of your sunrise and sunset. These are beautiful.

Suzy said...

All your photos are beautiful...I think I'm more of a sunset girl!

pumpkinsandginger said...

Beautiful pictures ...hmmm...I have a hard time choosing which I like best.Since I'm more of a morning person ..probably sunrises would be my first choice...but...after a blissfully busy day...the sunset is a gift too.
Cheers:)

These are stunning!

Riet said...

I love both sunrises and sunsets altho the sets are more spectacular. Your photo's are beautiful. Didi you see my sunset photo's of these last weeks? I join Skywatch Friday, you should do that too.
Have a nice week.

Kim, USA said...

From my area where we live I am more of a sunsetter ^_^ There are times I so wish I could see the sunrise but because of the tall trees I can't see it coming though I see the colors in the sky. ^_^ Gorgeous images here thanks for sharing.

LBP said...

I can never decide whether I like sunsets or sunrises the most... I like them both.

I really like the last photo, it almost looks like a cat face in the clouds. But then again, I could always see stuff in clouds that nobody else could!

Blessings

Shannon @ A Cozy Place Called Home said...

I enjoyed your pictures Diane. Nothing is quite as pretty as nature's beauty is it. I enjoyed the sunrise pictures best, probably because unlike your husband I'm not one of those up at the crack of down people. You know I am NOT a morning person. Hee hee!

Food, Fun and Life in the Charente said...

Thanks for your visit and comments, much appreciated. I love good sunsets but we seem to have been a bit short of them this year. Almost no rain and therefore no clouds to show the sunsets off. Your photos are gorgeous. T'other Diane

Pat Kelly said...

Gorgeous gorgeous pictures Diane!! I am more of a sunset gal! We are enjoying a beautiful fall here in Colorado! The weather is perfect and the colors are beautiful! Love, Pat

Joy said...

Beautiful street and sunrise pictures. ;)

Patty (Patty's Pretty Things) said...

I am a sunset girl - I love to sleep in!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

They are gorgeous!! I 'm with you, I am a sunset as opposed to sunrise kind of girl, but it sure looks like I am missing some great sun rises!

Very nice, love those pastel shades.

Life Images by Jill said...

I am not sure whether I prefer sunrises or sunsets - though I must say I only usually see sunrises when we are out camping - and then they are stunning! A bit of cloud definitely helps the patterns.
Thank you for sharing your skys with us - and Thank you for stopping by my blog today to say hi - have a wonderful week.

Sheila said...

Beautiful sunsets! I love both and probably sunrises more as they signal the beginning of each day.

Hello Diane

Your shell design is just beautiful and the pearls add the right amount of brightness. Those sunsets are glorious. I am in Ireland presently and have enjoyed some glorious sunrises
