Sunup or Sundown?

As a photographer, I have a doubt

My photographer friends among the readers can help me.

Is it possible to tell a Sunrise from a Sunset by looking at a photo without knowing the location or EXIF details?

I don’t know.

Maybe professionals can make out.

But my guess is it’s impossible to tell, just by seeing the photographs.

What is your experience, my friend?

Can you tell the difference?

And your preference?

Do you prefer photos of Sunrise more than Sunset? or you prefer Sunset over Sunrise?

If you ask me I don’t wish to break my head, I enjoy both, since both are colorful and magnificent.

Those of you who are not photographers or don’t find time to interact with Mother Nature, especially Sunrise or Sunset, I wish to share my feelings when I Watch Sunrise or Sunset.

To be frank, the feeling one gets is unexplainable. 

☑️It makes me more grateful to God & Mother Earth

☑️I get good vibes. There is warmth and a positive mood.

☑️I forget all my problems, tensions and I am at peace myself.

☑️My mind becomes calm.

☑️I forget myself!

What else I want?

Apart from enjoying the Beauty of the Sunrise, did you realize the real philosophy?

“Not everyone was privileged to see another sunrise like you did, so before you start complaining; remember that the breath of life, is not for sale.”  Gift Gugu Mona



“Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.”   Kristen Butler

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. I have never captured Sunrise or Sunset but witnessed both. I agree with the points mentioned. Its just the moment is full of hope after inhaling the tranquility. Also, its difficult for me to judge which one is sun rise and sun set from the photographs.
    Quotes are amazing as always. Beautiful post.
