Daybreak over Mt. Arthurs and Finlayson Ridge, Monashee Mountains, B.C.

The morning views across the Monashees deliver most every time.  Because the peaks hide the sun, the sky will lighten an hour before it rises over the horizon producing a myriad of colors (purple, pinks, reds, and orange all mashed together!) and finally fading to yellow as the sun climbs.

Sweeping sunset across Conger Lake while kayak camping in the Massasauga Provincial Park

Sweeping sunset across Conger Lake while kayak camping early September in the Massasauga Provincial Park with one of our daughters. Two excellent days with sun, mid-teen temperatures, card games, good food, campfire, and these fantastic skies after the sun went down.

Flying over Kauai’s Lihue-Koloa Forest Reserve in a helicopter an hour or so after sunrise, fortunate to capture these wonderful yellow and purple streaks of light and shadows across the mountain range.

For those of us who love Toronto, here is a different view of our skyline, looking West from Spadina to Humber at sunset, including Exhibition and Liberty Village. The usual North view is all office skyscrapers, while this West angle is condos, and to my surprise, abundance of green space.

Anaeho’omalu Beach Perfect Sunset

Thinking this is my favorite photo from trip to Hawaii. It was our last night; we walked the lagoons behind the hotel and along Anaeho’omalu Beach watching the sun bring end to the day. As the saying goes… picture perfect!

Sunset at 35,000 feet on way to Aruba

sunset at thirty five thousand feet on way to aruba
Right place at the right time, particularly if your seat was on the West side of the plane! (Feel bad for the East facing folks!)  We were treated to an ever evolving sunset as we cruised at 35,000 feet on way to Aruba.  Dare you to step out and walk across the clouds 🙂  (My spouse took the picture, while I did the post processing)

Sun sets are a favorite of mine because of the many colors, the emotion, and shadows that are created. Here we are anchored in a bay within the Sea Of Abaco, north Bahamas, having dinner on our boat, watching the sun set across our neighbor.
