Sometimes My Brain Just Wonders
What is so compelling about sunrises and sunsets that people all over the globe get up early or stay and wait for the first or last glimpse of the sun? After all it happens twice daily at least in the middle latitudes of our planet. There are even famous places where people make special trips to watch it happen. Volcanoes in Hawaii and beaches on the west coasts of continents. I find myself caught up in it too, capturing images of sunrises and sunsets with my photography. The bright, rich colors contrasting with the shapes of the land are visually stimulating and beautiful to look at. Is it the red light that hits a special nerve in the pleasure center of our brains. Maybe it is a way of marking the beginning or end of a new chapter in our lives. Just maybe it is simply that we are in awe of God's handiwork in the heavens and we just find it to be beautiful. It's something to wonder about. May you have a wonderful day. God bless, chris These are a few sunrises from over the Mendocino Range and the Little Lake Valley earlier this week. They were captured with a Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS lens. Exposures varied.
