Sunrise, Sunset

With all of the abandoned places I’ve visited, sunrises and sunsets are always my favorites time of day if I can get capture those moments. I’ve started taking my camera with me if I know I’m going to be out at dusk or dawn, and I’ve started a small collection. I’m including a couple of my favorite abandoned places in early morning and the last whispers of light. I added a thunderstorm photo and a favorite black and white of the magnificent tree in my back yard. This entire post is dedicated to light.

“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

“You owe me.”

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

Some of these incredible shots were taken from my ex-husband’s property. He and his wife live on a hill overlooking the city, with a breathtaking view of the sunset. Sometimes it doesn’t matter where you find your beauty, as long as you find it.

The clouds above were breathtaking and I had a feeling that night I should take my camera. I later discovered the smoke from the Canada fires hanging in the air changed the light of the sun, illuminating the clouds like the embers in the fires that caused the smoke. I am in constant amazement of the beauty in this world. It exists, you only have to pay attention.
