Sunrise, Sunset

Everyone loves a sunset. We all love a sunrise too, if we get up early enough and take the time to look. Below are some of our favorite scenes created by the rising and setting sun. Some of the photographs include the sun itself. Others show the light reflected off the sky, clouds, water, bulidings, trees, snow and the moon. (These images are links to larger versions of the file size indicated.)
