Sunrise or Sunset --- Which Do You Like Best?

I have always loved watching the sunsets. It's not because I'm not a morning person that I like sunsets because I am a morning person. It's just that I have always liked sunsets more than sunrises. Sunsets are more colorful and more dramatic, in a sense. I also like the idea that it represents, the end of something and the mark of a new beginning. After the sun sets, you see the moon rising, although, technically, the moon is always there, just not as visible as it is at night. I guess it's just the romantic in me that loves sunsets. So, which do you like best -- sunrise or sunset? And why?

I too love watching the sun set, espescially from a Greek island! The sunsets here in the UK can be quite good but it is always satisfying to watch the sun go down over the sea in a warm climate. I do remember one brilliant sunrise though that was absolutely spectaculair, I was in the Shetland Isles at the time and was mad enough to be out camping, the rising sun as I sat there outside my tent making a brew is something that will stay with me forever.

Watching sunsets on a Greek island! Sounds exciting! Maybe someday I could have that experience. Spectacular sunsets that I remember were the ones I watched on campus. Like watching ever-changing paintings.

Clearwater Beach, Florida sunset - This is a picture I took of a sunset in Clearwater Beach, Florida.
I am like you, I love sunsets. They are just so much more colorful, especially if you can watch them from the beach as they the sun seems to go into the water. Oh such a beautiful site. My only problem is I live on the east coast and don't get to see the sunset over water, but I can watch the sun come up over water. The last sunset over water I was able to see was last year when we went on vacation to Clearwater Beach, Fl.

I know what you mean about sunsets over water. I think it's just more romantic. I used to watch sunsets everyday...it seems so long ago.

I love sunsets. I love to watch the day end. I love the colors it makes when I am at the beach watching it. I love that time between sunset and complete darkness.

I think that's what I love about sunsets -- that they're colorful and no matter how many sunsets you see, they're all so different and beautiful. It's like looking a different painting all the time. And sunsets at the beach are always awesome!

I've always enjoyed early morning jogs -- it's such a great feeling to be out there before the world wakes up and watch the sunrise in an open field. It clears my mind and helps me look at the world in a different light.

Personally I prefer a sunset. They can be so much more colorful than our sunrises out here in Alberta.
