Photo of the Day: Patagonia Sunrise 12


I have written a few times about sunsets verses sunrises.  As a big fan of Patagonia and the whole South American coastal areas (there are a lot of them), I can say that this part of the world was a total amazement to me.  I never expected to see what I saw in Patagonia.

And this sunrise was no exception.

I woke up too late one morning to catch the 5 a.m. bus to start heading back up to Buenos Aires to meet my buddy that lives up there, but I did get to catch this sunrise over the Beagle Channel.  Wow.

I think sunrises might be better than sunsets for photos.  And certainly for peacefulness.  Though perhaps not as good for happy hours….

    I’m never awake to see many sunrises. But I’m a sucker for sunsets.

    And this photo is amazing! The colors are awesome.

    This is my fave shot of yours, ever since I saw it @ A Pair of Panties & Boxes “Sunrise” post. Brilliant colors and great lines.

    Breathtaking. I’ve had similar thoughts about sunrises vs sunsets, but decided that it’s sunrises for me. This partly because I love the freshness of the early morning, and the sunrise holds such promise, whereas the sunset is the day’s end, and, I suppose, I’m not much of a nightbird. I’m so lucky that where I live I’ve witnessed the most spectacular sunrises. Right now I have no view from my little apartment, but I’ve lived where I’ve seen views similar to this one right from my window in a morning. Well a bit less remote maybe, but the majesty is the same, and there are few folk around that early. Bliss. Thanks for sharing my favorite time of day!
