    Which of these do you prefer, a sunrise or a sunset and why

    or do you like both of them equally? I seem to like sunsets but that is because I rarely see a sunrise:)

    both smile

    I love sunsets in the arms of the one you love and as the last rays kiss goodnight to the night sky, the play of colors are amazing.

    I love sunrises because it always makes me appreciate being alive.  As the first rays of the morning sun caresses my face I'm thankful for a new day, with new possibilities, new opportunities to get my swagger on!

    I prefer the sunset when I have done sufficiently good for the day; I prefer the sunrise when I have nightmares.

    I really cannot make up my mind. Sunrise can be very interesting with fog. Sunset can be very dramatic when there are great clouds.

    I prefer a Sunset! That way I don't have to get up early!

    Sunrise. I'm one of those rare beasts - a morning person

    I am a morning person, and prefer sunrises. However, as a photographer, I like sunsets which are invariably more dramatic in my part of the world - New Zealand.

    That's actually a pretty hard question. I've seen more sunrises than sunsets, but I think I prefer sunsets. Sunsets are the most beautiful, not sure why, but sunrises do a much better job of forcing my thinking hat on my head, which is why I get up super early every day to write. This photo is a low-tide shot on Phi Phi Island.

    Well, I like both, 
                                    Sunrise  is  when  you wake and   are  ready to   enjoy  the  beautiful day  , sunset  is   so very beautiful especially  in a romantic setting, love  the  colors   of them  too, not one  is ever the same either.

    - A sunrise because its so crisp and fresh for the eyes.

    - A sunset because it is so soothing to watch after a hard day's of work...

    Mother Nature did think of everything...smile
    I even wrote a poem 'On Sunset' in 1997 as the sunset gave me so much peace...Hope you like it!

    I like sunrise because it signals a new day and new opportunities.  It is a renewable fresh start.

    I have had the pleasure of enjoying some amazing sunsets and some incredible sunrises as well. Although I like sunsets a lot, there is nothing comparable to watching the sun come up. My favorite sunrises have been while climbing mountains. Great question!

    Sunset. I'm much more of a night owl... so seeing a sunset is exciting. It means my night is just beginning.

    Look's like I'm going to have to set aside a time to see a sunrise:)

    I'm going to cheat and choose both:

    Sunrise- for dawning promises, the golden beginnings and the challenge of the day ahead.

    Sunset: for the dusky invitations, the twilight whispers and the possibilities of the night ahead.

    It is like the yin and yang. The light and dark. Together they create a balance.

    sunrise is the start of something new, the possibility that you will meet every possibility the day holds since you've been there from the start. you cannot miss anything that may be in store for you on that day if you are up before the sun. you are the first to see the sun tentatively cast its glow over the horizon line, so it's yours. for the whole of that day, the sun belongs to you.

    I prefer a SUNRISE
    Reason : I believe in freshness and new opportunities which come with the new day smile

    thebluestarposted 7 years ago

    I adore both. I love the sunrise, pale pink and grey skys, birdsong and the dew, wondering what the new day will bring.

    Sunset, dark sometimes stormy clouds with that vivid red sky dancing flames on the horizon.  Beauty in both of them.

    sunrise is better than set.

    Before I became a parent, Sunset would have been the answer without a doubt. I rarely see Sunrise if I can help it. But, now I have kids to get me out of bed early, I still prefer Sunset. Not because it's now the start of my night owl activities, but because it means I can finally get to bed! smile

    I Like the sunset, i like the color of the sky on a sun set. I hate sun rise because it tells me that i have to get out of bed, I enjoy my sleep too much.

    I like sunset, I like sunrise
    I like it all, I think it's wise smile
    I like to watch the birds in fly
    I like... I don't know why...

    I'm just that kind of a girl
    Who likes what's beautiful and all...
    I'm not an early bird myself
    So sunset is when I meet my Elf,
    Sunrise is when I often sleep,
    But then sometimes I hear beep
    That comes from a neighbor's wake up call
    That's when I see sunrise and all... smile)

    sunrise's are beautiful if you ever catch one, in my trips and in my old job back when i was a kid* paper route ,   anyways reason why bc  once the sun hits the sky and you see the mountian in the back drop its somethign else . i dont really know how else to describe it .

    Sunsets. The day's done; your road is run. You can rest, bandage the wounds you've sustained, and pray the morning never comes.

    I like both of them equally, however it is easier for me to take pictures of the sunsets as I am not always up early enough to catch the sunrises, especially when travelling

    I'm never awake early enough for a sunrise so it's definitely going to be sunset for me! I love watching the sun go down at the end of a day especially on vacation when you can sit on the balcony overlooking the beach and the sea, glass of wine in hand, and take some memorable photos.

    I prefer a sunset. I don't do mornings! I love sleeping late, drinking coffee, and waking up slowly.

    I get up early every day, usually around 5 or 5:30 a.m. so I see sunrises and sunsets often. Things just seem more peaceful in the morning when the sun comes up over the horizon. I am a lover of both sunrises and sunsets, but I have more of an attraction to sunrises.

    I would prefer sunrise because the level of energized we feel at that hour is incomparable. Sunrise shows that after every dusk there is a dawn! It is when nature welcomes all. It is a very beautiful phase to look up to and learn.
