Monochrome Madness / Photography Challenges

Sunset Beach

Sunset is one of my favorite times of the day.

Sunset –  those few peaceful moments just as the sun is setting that remind you that miracles happen everyday.  Somehow it seems that a beautiful sunset makes me feel more positive and I can let the stress of the day slide away.

That Magic Moment

As a photographer, I think of sunset as “that magic moment” when I can get a fantastic photo.  However,  sunset also provides “that magic moment” for life — just a  few moments when you stop whatever you’re doing, take a deep breath, look up and reflect on the blessings of your day.

A breathtaking sunset results when several
different types of clouds fill the sky and
the sun reflects on the water
as it peeks through a cloud.

Sunset Viewing

We recently move from the Texas Panhandle to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.  One of the things I’ve really missed is the gorgeous sunsets on the Texas plains.  There are some pretty sunsets here; but the buildings, trees and electric lines always seem to block part of it.

We’ll be making one more move before the end of the year to our home near Lake Kiowa, Texas.  Imagine my delight to find that the beach just down the road provides a great sunset viewing spot.   On a lucky day, I might even be able to see some of “that magic moment” through the trees from my front porch.

Do you prefer sunrise or sunset? Where’s your favorite sunrise or sunset viewing spot?
