7-Years of Sunsets From Michigan & North Carolina As of June 21, 2017
What is it about Sunsets which grab at the heart of anyone watching one take place? Every night, wherever you are, there is a sunset when the sun disappears beneath the physical horizon which only you can see. Sometimes, depending on where you are as well as what is in the sky as well as on the surface of the Earth, the sunset becomes a unique piece of art to your eyes.
It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Well, this certainly is true with Sunsets. What I've found is that Sunsets behave differently when there is no water present in its path, the one you see, than when there is water. For instance, a sunset needs to be reflective otherwise it is simply a boring event.
When water is present, the sun reflects off of its surface as well as reflecting off of the atmospheric conditions as it nears the visual horizon. These two reflective conditions create stunning visuals and are always different.
When no water is present in your visual field, the only reflective source is the sky. Depending on what is in the sky will certainly define either a boring uninmaginable sunset or reflect off of the clouds, moisture in the air such as rainbow creation, or colorful multicolorful rays of light bouncing around visually; every early night those rays of light are different.
Then there is the after glow of a sunrise. Never the same. Like a snow flake or a drop of rain water, those rays continue to flow forth because of our atmospheric conditions which change by the second. On a clear day, one is alledged to be able to see great distances. During a sunseting series of minutes, one sees everthing there is of how beautiful our Earth projects in front of our eyes.
The photos here I've captured what I consider to be my best. Some may disagree. Though many have enjoyed the electronic as well as printed albums of these scenes. Yet, remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you can see a sunset, remember none are the same from day to day, season to season. It's all about what you see and feel in your heart rather than what the person next to you or thousands of miles away sees and feels.
