    though ALL of the images displayed were terrific, i thought quite a few were actually sunsets and at other times of the day rather just sunRISE. still very inspirational and hopefully will get people out to see and capture some of their own.

    The last one by Franz Schumacher is great.
    Also loved the sunrise pictures taken on the sea or ocean shore.
