Collection: Sunsets

As you may or may not know, I’m a big fan of sunsets (and rises).

For me, a sunset is a daily reminder of natural, moving, earthly beauty that takes place every single day; it’s something that can be seen from anywhere in the world.  In a way it connects us.  Part of it helps us to see that time is a constant we cannot control, a continuation of our separate lives, coming together for a few minutes at a time.

When I watch the sunset, I take the time to slow down.  Time deserves to be recognized, and if it takes a sunset to do so, then that will have to do.

Sunrises are different.  Those are for another time.  They make me feel completely different than sunsets do.

Anyway, here are a few of the best sunsets I’ve collected.  They’ve happened all over the world.  New York City, Long Beach Island, Point Pleasant, Jones Beach, Denver, Rome, Florence, Scotland.

That’s another beauty I find in sunsets.  Every single one is different.
