Mini Challenge #139 — Sunrise Sunset

Hello all,
Everyone shoots sunrises and sunsets even if it is just to have something tangent to remember the moment by. In fact they are my favorite times of the day even when I don't have a camera in my hands. I love just sitting there watching the colors change from one minute to the next. It is a very peaceful time to just sit and let any problems melt away. So, show me your favorite sunrise or sunset shots. While context will play a part, the WOW factor from the colors will probably push your image to the top of my list. Here are a few of mine.

Day's End

End of Summer

New Day, New Year

The usual rules apply. Submit 3 images, either old or fresh. Comment on each other's image. But most importantly, have fun.

This mini will end approximately 7:30 pm east coast time on Sunday April 1st.

— Kevin
Enjoy today, tomorrow is not guaranteed.

    Three sunrises from my bedroom
    As you might guess, my bedroom faces eastward. I'll sometimes wake up to this and feel compelled to grab a camera. The first two are from 2011 and the third from about a week ago.

    You might be breaking your bones taking the shot, but the way you're linking is also broken. Your images aren't showing up unless I open the link in a new window. Not sure what's wrong.
