Sunrise, Sunset


Image result for sunrise cartoon


There is nothing more relaxing that watching a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Manchester is covered with cloud most of the year so it can be difficult to see the sun at all, making it necessary for me to travel to far off exotic places to witness such splendour.

Nevertheless, I have managed to catch a glimpse of the sun rising and falling behind the horizon in my adopted home town.

I have captured a few nice sunsets and the odd the sunrise over recent years – mostly sunsets because catching a good sunrise requires getting up at the crack of dawn (something I prefer not to do on holiday).

I thought I would share a few with you. I hope you like them.

I love a good sunrise and sunset and I hope to add more to my collection.

I hope you enjoyed them.

Love them. I am a dawn and dusk addict.
My partner, whose preference is getting up at the crack of noon, misses the dawns.

Ummm, just to be nit-picky...those Manchester photos clearly do have clouds in them.
I'm guessing usually the cloud cover is complete rather than patchy. (*~*)
The photos are all very lovely.

Even a surly cynic like myself loves a good sunset. Very pretty pics. Thanks.

Hi Joeh,

Me too - but jet lag sometimes allows me to look at a good sunrise.

Hi EC,

The best chance to catch a sunrise here is on a winter morning - but usually it's raining and masked by clouds.

Hi River,

You are correct. We do get the odd totally cloud free sky here, but they are rare.
