Poll - 'Sunrise/Sunset'

It's not going to be easy choosing a winning photo, they are all breathtaking. No camera can do justice to a beautiful sunrise/sunset. Perhaps try and imagine yourself physically witnessing each sunset, that could possibly help with your voting :D

Entrants... thanks for your contribution, without your photos...well, there would be no contests to look forward to each month :tiphat:

We ask you to please not comment on any of the photographs until the poll has closed - thank you.

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?

I don't remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?

Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days

Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?

Now they must learn from one another
Day by day

They look so natural together

Just like two newlyweds should be

Is there a canopy in store for me?

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

Awesome pictures. I took this one last week but had already entered one. Harvest time brings some beautiful sunsets.

The problem I have with these kind of pictures is the thing they are generally noted for......color.
I'm colorblind. I can 'mostly' tell basic colors; black/white/blue/red/green but cannot differentiate between hues and contrasts within each color.
