Spectacular Sunsets

|
My house faces west and so on some evenings, the sky illuminates brilliantly as the sun sets. As the evening draws near, I often have my living room shades drawn but most of the time, the brilliant sunlight beams in between the shades' openings. When they do, I know the sky will have some awesome colors. Here are some of the spectacular sunset shots that I took using my phone. This is my favorite picture. The clouds above the lamp post on the left look like mountains, don't they?


As the sky gets darker, the illuminating center is still bright:


Here are some other sunsets:


Same shot as the one above but minutes apart:


On this particular day, the sky was especially bright as the sun beamed its bright rays before setting into the horizon:

Wow! Those are really lovely shots of sunsets. They become beautiful silhouette photos!. I never snap any photo during sunset. If I go to beach I would usually leave before sunset. I would love to do it one of these days:)

@TK - My eldest daughter loves looking at the sky ever since she learned about astronomy in school. She was the one that got me into taking the sky.

@Gratitude - Oh I do have some morning shots..probably will post that next time.

@Astra Libis - Thanks! I actually didn't notice the "mountain" cloud up til yesterday when I was looking at which pictures to post.

What lovely photos you've taken. The light turns the sky from pretty to beautiful to glorious!

Rose Belle said...

@Mei - They truly are beautiful to watch.

@Cheryl - I couldn't agree more.

The first shot looks like a dragon slithering its way down the mountain. That was really a great shot. The weather has been good in the city and the sky is clear and blue. Spring is fast approaching. There should be an abundance of great sunsets coming.

Nice photos! love them! I always love gazing at the skies whether it's sunrise or sunset! I even love the dark clouds before a storm and of course I love the rainbow after the rain! Nature is just so amazing, isn't it? : )

It's awesome! I never get tired of watching the sun rise and set. One of the perks of living in a building, the great view of the sky!

Have a great day sweetie!
