Friday Shoot Out - Sunrise / Sunset

Red sky in the morning sailor take warning
Red sky at nite sailor delight
My archive folder for Sunrise/sunset/fog holds 1462 photots, almost without exception all were taken off our balcony. I give you only 3 as a sample. The valley off our balcony runs NW - SW as does the valley that runs through Nova Friburgo. For some reason we seldom have colored sunsets. There are long shadow on the opposite hills then it is dark. To be
totally honest I am seldom up for a sunrise, but in both sunrise and sunsets, the beauty here is how the sun shines across the clouds in the valley and how the last rays of sun light the rain clouds. Any pink on the horizon turns the tops of the clouds in the valley in to pink cotton.

  3. The first one is simply perfect, with the majestic mountains in the picture. I too can see sunset from my balcony, but with more high rise buildings around , instead of mountains , like yours.

  4. That first shot Ginger is a beauty with the mist over the trees.
    If that one is from your balcony, that is a magnificent view to see each day.

  10. What a spectacular view! You must see some great cloud formations over those mountains all the time.
    These three photos have such different feels to them. I could get lost in any one of them!

  14. Ginger, these are all very pretty. I really like the last one a lot, but I also lik the barely pink puffy cloud in the second photo. The first photo looks mysterious and lonely.

  18. Of course all of your photo were excellent, but the first was in a class by itself. It was just breathtaking.

    And to think this is the view from your balcony! Ginger you live in paradise!

  19. I love them all...absolutely gorgeous and at the opposite end of the spectrum from mine. Goes to show that no matter where we are, rain or shine, daybreak and sundown are amazing shows.
