Sunsets: solar energy for the eyes

There are fans and critics of daylight saving time, which starts THIS weekend in the United States (go here to see DST rules worldwide), but I think we can agree that pretty much everyone loves a good sunset.  Here are a few of our favorites, all taken by Wessel:

    Gorgeous photos. I particularly love Lake Gaston. But give some love to the photographer. I don’t see the credits! Though I suspect I know who “made the pictures.”

      Ack. Good point. I’ll do that now. Of course they were taken by the one and only Wessel Kok. He did, btw, steal my Lake Gaston sunset location. I’d taken a similar sunset photo there when I was alone and he liked it so much he went back to the same spot. Indeed, his photo (and I suppose his sunset) was more brilliant.

    Sorry for you Diane. But words cannot describe the feeling that is overwhelming you the last second when the glow of the sun is burning out. Not a rational thought, but deep in your mind you hope the sun will return tomorrow. Only the image of the ulimate second can describe what you feel.
