As of the writing of this post if you search 'sunrise' and 'sunset' here in the community the scales tip in favor of 'sunset' by a margin of 32 results to 25. But is that a true representation of the people? Because the question has never been asked directly, let's settle this once and for all (for now, at least):
Which do you prefer: Sunrises or Sunsets?
Bonus points for your best (or favorite) photo that you have taken!
I must say I am a bit (or a lot) of both. I am an early riser so do so enjoy seeing the sunrise over the Cascades which is often a magnificent if not blinding sight. Then again we are situated to see some awe inspiring sunsets across Puget Sound over to Whidbey. As an early riser the sunset is a signal my day is winding down to a close as well and I am hopeful I shone half as brightly as the sunset or sunrise I am privileged to witness in my beautiful Pacific Northwest. Thanks for asking John.
I love sunsets just a point more than sunrises just because I feel like the colors are more intense, of course location is important when it comes to any of them but specially sunsets at the beach.
I do have to say that sunrises come with a more powerful message, the transition of getting up earlier than the average and the effort of it, going from dark to light and the feeling of a new opportunity !
here I share one sunset from California and one of my favorite sunrise ever in Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park!
I love both sunrises and sunsets but since I rarely see a sunrise my vote would be for sunsets. My wife and I retired to Northeastern Italy a few years ago and we are treated to some very nice sunrises and sunsets. The first photo is a sunrise I saw while getting ready to meet a friend to go pick grapes. The second photo is a sunset from our house and the third is a sunset we caught a few years ago while on the island of St.Thomas.
