Sunrise, Sunset

This last week was a great week for sky colors. Autumn is laying in the clouds despite the best attempts of a late summer to hold on. It has made for some beautiful mornings and evenings. Even my crummy phone camera couldn't screw these up.

This was the sunset after (possibly) our last 80+ degree F day of the year. We had a 24 mile bicycle ride with a couple of decent climbs earlier and were relaxing at the Rock Creek Tavern as the day faded away:


A few days earlier in the week, we were treated to a sunrise that lit up the sky:


And the next morning was nearly as bright, but added more textural variety to keep up with the day before:


With such beauty, it is tough to complain...though I usually find a way. :D

Thanks for sharing those spectacular sunrise/sunsets. I wonder what it is that makes such sights so awesome to us humans, bringing forth emotions of appreciation, peace, and contentment?
