For this week’s photo challenge, called RISE/SET, we turn to the rising and setting sun. We could choose to present one or try what I did… you can choose to show both. I hope you like them. The setting sun is below and on the left, and the rising sun is above and all on the right side of the frame… What are your favorite times of the day? I love both but I think sunset shows better…

Drake – God’s Plan


Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
But yours,
is your ultimate

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post:  – RISE/SET –  For this week’s photo challenge, share your favorite photos of a sunrise or a sunset. If you’re an early bird, try to capture what dawn means to you. Is it a symbol of hope? A reminder to get going? Do you have any special early morning rituals that you do as the sun rises in the sky? For night owls, share a snapshot of the day coming to an end. Show off the vibrant colors of sunset and the peaceful calm as the moon rises or any twilight rituals you may have. Get creative and show us the sun in all of her fiery glory.


Positive Motivation Tip:  Go with the flow of life and rise/set with delight

    I am happy to say that I have been blessed to watch the sun set and rise over the sea in Florida. It is a sight I have loved for as long as I can remember. And I do hope to one day see it rise and set in other areas. It is always beautiful.

    I think sunrises are my favorite. I love the new light and the promise of a new day! But you’re right, in general, sunsets show up more spectacularly.

      Yes, they both have merit.

    I love this challenge! I had a chance to see the sunrise for the first time in a while due to an early start time last weekend and there was something so amazing about it. It’s this beautiful time of day where everything is calm and new.

      Sure… I love the dappled sunlight of early morning too. I have some photos of early morning but didn’t have enough time to find them.

    I wish I had the energy to get up early enough to watch the sunrise. It’s such a beautiful sight to see.

    I am all about the sunrise it’s starts our day with blessings of waking up. It’s always the start of something new as well.

    So beautiful!! We have an amazing view off of our back door because we look out over a mountain range. The sunrises and sets there are absolutely gorgeous.

    I really like seeing the horizon. It means the end but it also means a start. It’s got me rolling on my toughest days, just by staring at it. In this sense, yes, I’m lucky to be living in a place where I see the sun rise and set.

    • Eliz@MirthandMotivation permalink*
      01/04/2018 6:02 pm

      I love the horizon too… always inviting

    I love sunrise more than a sunset. They all look beautiful though, very calming.

      I agree…
