Spectacular Sunsets From My Rooftop

Updated on February 18, 2015

On The Roof Sunsets are Nourishing

One of the benefits of living up off the ground is the dynamic quality of sunsets. Who can resist the sunset that clings to the last rays of daylight!

Rising above neighboring roofs and lights, the sky makes emphatic statements in my nieghborhood. Most of my rooftop shots look like they could be in a remote rural setting!

A cold Spring sky above my rooftop, bids good day to onlookers.

      Yes, some of them can be amazing!

    Oh, I really prefer the colored photographs, of anything. How can you have a sunset without color?

        I like the darkness of the trees against the colors of the sky - it's amazing how many small details can be seen clearly.

        My favorites all seem to be colored... ;-)

      • pinkrenegade lm 4 years ago

        With color.

        That is a poetic moment indeed through which I found myself enjoying verses and polite touching some images to reflect the ecstasy of the evening colors.

      Charm of an Urban Winter Night

      On a cloudy eve such as this one, when the sun hides at 4pm, the sky can still delight when shot from my roof. January 2009, looking northward, a bit to the west. The low lying cloud cover reflects a multitude of city lights.

      City Sunset Through the Window on Your Wall

      By now you've surmised that mine is an urban landscape. That's what makes it so remarkable that from the rooftop, in the evening, one can just pretend to live on a hilltop out beyond the suburbs, regularly soaking in the sky.

      Try Your Hand at Painting Your Own Sunset

      RAEART is fun to watch because he paints in real-time on the left, and alongside that he paints in a time-lapse video. Paint a sunset in 15 minutes, and have fun with it.

          Awesome photographs. You are lucky to have a rooftop where you can always see the sunset or sunrise.

          They are lovely. I've always thought that you can't beat an African sunset. They do something to me inside...I miss them.

          Love your photos of sunsets. I have a few, but never thought of taking them at different times of the year. I will have to do that.
