Do you prefer a Sunrise or a Sunset?

Do you prefer a Sunrise of a Sunset?

 

As a photographer of 40 years I have had my fair share of  Sunrises and Sunsets and they are by far one of my favorite scenes to capture.

The problem is lately as I get older it is much easier to take a photo of a sunset vs a sunrise because I have to get up at the crack of dawn to capture a sunrise.

But on the other hand I like the idea of a sunrise because I have the whole day ahead of me vs a sunset where it becomes dark after the set.

So which one do you prefer ... Sunrise or a Sunset?

Hi Bob, I like both, but maybe sunrises a bit more as they hold promise of a new beginning. Nice shots!

I tend to like the sunsets better as they are more colorful and it is hard for me to get up early enough to catch the sunrises.

Hello Lou ... 

Same here and it's getting more difficult for me to view sunrises because I like to sleep in.

Hi Robert 'VEGAS BOB' Swetz , I think I like the Sunrise best, that is, if I don't miss it.  That means it's time for coffee.

Hi Bob Robert 'VEGAS BOB' Swetz We live in Escondido, not Oceanside, but we make to the beach for the sunset quite often. I'm always looking for the GREEN FLASH. Now if you could get a picture of that............

I love both, depending upon where I am in the world.  But in general the colors of sunset are more beautiful to me!!!
