clouds at sunset

I am a big fan of sunrises, but sunsets--not so much. Sunrises and sunsets are two completely different animals--and you sleepy-heads are just going to take my word for it when I say that with a sunrise there is usually a whole lot of drama in the sky about 20 to 30 minutes prior to the actual arrival of the fireball.

But yes, these shots were snapped near sunset. And yes, this vantage point is the China Camp area--one of my favorite spots to shoot sunrises.

A sunrise is the promise of a new day--a fresh start. But I've heard rumors that some folks have a difficult time getting out of bed so early. Probably those same folks who seem to come-alive with the setting of the sun. Different strokes, I suppose, for different folks. Yawn...

The last one looks very dramatic, sort of like two dragons breathing fire at one another:)

LOVE these sunset pics. And yeah, I'm one of those sleepyheads who only gets to enjoy the glory of the day's sunset. LOL. But there are times that I do get to see a sunrise. It IS like a breath of fresh air … and new beginning.

Anyway, I think that this set of sunsets beats your sunrise pics. They are almost painterly in their quality.
