Sunrises or sunsets...it's all about the "light".....

This is a dramatic sunrise,  not a sunset....

On the Pacific Northwest Coast, it seems that residents are either sunrise people, appreciating a morning coffee while the sun bathes their deck, around 6 a.m., or they are sunset beings, enjoying that herbal tea on the deck, while the sun slips into the sea, around 9:30 p.m. in the summer season....

Beauty is everywhere in this region, and it's nice to be able to indulge in "choice", of course!

I think it's about "light"...the glow in the sky, the reflections in the water, the shimmer of cloud.....

This is a summer sunrise, and brings with it a warm glow of an expectant summer day.     A summer sunset is full of purples and greens and blues that defy description, all with an overlay of red orange...I think you can tell I'm the sunset variety!

Nice to hold these images, at this darkest day of the year, the Solstice moment marking "real winter", as a way to remind one that, yes, light and bright is on its way.

Beautiful! British Columbia is one of my favorite places to visit, as we are in Vancouver at least twice a year. Will have to visit Salt Spring Island on our next trip... hopefully we'll be lucky enough catch a glimpse of one of those sunsets!

These views simply take one's breath away...seems like a visit to BC with my photographer husband will need to go on the books!  With views like this, it is hard for me to understand how some don't believe in God!  Thank you for sharing the miracle!
