I bet a few of our viewers are thinking, 'Is it the end of the month already?' My apologies if I confused anyone with this collection of sunrise/sunset photos today, but there have been so many good ones crossing my desk lately, that there just aren't enough "end of the month" dates to get them all in. I know how much everyone enjoys watching the sun rise or set, so I decided to run a Special on them today. Photos like these need few words, so I'll just credit the photographers for their excellent work and leave it at that.

Just look at the range of colors these folks captured in the skies here UP North. Thanks to all five of you!

We think Robinson Jeffers must have been under the influence of scenes like these Mary posted...

a little too wise,
It is time for us to kiss the earth again."

Beautiful. The 1 with the sun's rays showing through the clouds reminds me of the same scenario I saw going home from my Grandma's funeral in December 1973. It was like it was saying Grandma was now in glory with the Lord. The 1 with the red sky is how weather can be forcast in rhyme (red sky in the morning, sailor take warning. Red sky at night, sailor's delight).

Oh my gosh, I can't decide which one to set as my desktop background!

I agree with all of you, these are outstanding shots! Donna's looks like the tropics. Beautiful!

I just got back from spending two weeks in the UP. I really enjoyed my nights watching the sunsets on Lake Superior!!

Thank you to all 5 photographers for bringing a little bit of 'home' to those of us who aren't able to enjoy the #1 wonder of the world in person!!

EARLY one morning, I was sitting in front of this thing, and turned my head, and yelled "OH MY GOD"...and threw on some clothes and ran out the door....My blinds were RED....When I got to my spot and took the picture, the rain was just starting...and before the sun crested, the whole sky turned grey. I jumped in my car, and by the time I got in my yard, it was pouring, and grey...

Ya just never know eh! Red Sky in the Morning, indeed!
