Endings and Beginnings...
A new year always inspires hindsight and foresight, assessing what has been and anticipating what is coming. As one year concludes and another begins, I thought a fitting blog topic might be Favorite Sunsets and Sunrises of 2015. Although I shared some sunrise and sunset images randomly in the blog over the past year, there were others I never took the time to process, although I'd marked the RAW files as favorites when I first looked at the images. Some I processed and printed for Yellowhouse Gallery but never shared here.

So in the spirit of looking back in order to peer ahead, here are my sunset and sunrise offerings from 2015 for you to enjoy.

"Afterglow" occurred early in 2015. I loved the kisses of pink in an otherwise dark, dramatic sky.

This was made earlier the same evening--Groundhog Day, 2015.

Here is a long-exposure sunrise from the photo workshop I attended in April. In processing this yesterday I realized "pink" was a sub-theme for 2015!

Same morning, also a long exposure. Standing under NH Pier.

Sunset behind the Bodie Lighthouse, also from the April workshop. We were blessed with over-the-top skies morning and evening.

Here is another from that same weekend; this time, the exposure is even longer and what is lighting the water, pre-dawn, is the moonlight.

This sunset is from Salvo on St. Patrick's Day.

This was the most intensely pink sunset I've experienced in a long time, after some stormy skies earlier. Mid-March 2015.

Same evening. The sky looked almost fake even while I was standing under it!

This is my most recent dusk excursion to the sea. As the setting sun began to gild the edge of the surf, I was joined for a little while by a lone winter willet.
