Sailor's Cove Sunset

Here are two shots of the same scene, Sailor's Cove - above, just before sunset yesterday and, to the right, just after sunrise three days ago. We tend to see sunrise and sunset as similar events in that they both bring more colour to the sky. However, I am discovering that because they happen on opposite sides of the horizon, they have quite different effects on local landscapes. Though the above photo was a rather gray evening, if you compare the early morning version of this photo on the right it will provide a good example of the differences between sunrise and sunset at this location.

This was very nice photo. It is a huge difference between the two images. The light here is great and you can see the city in the background is great.
Have a nice day!

Beautiful no matter what time of day, no matter what the weather.

Very interesting to see the contrasts. I loved the sunrise photo and posted a comment. Today's sunset version is also gorgeous, but it seems like a different place in this light.
