People love to admire a beautiful and colorful sunrise and sunset. We also enjoy photographing them because they illustrate some of the best examples of naturally-painted landscape scenery.
But which one do people prefer to look at more? Well, after investigating this question I came to the conclusion that it is virtually a toss-up. Both a sunrise and sunset can be appealing to many people on an emotional and a visually aesthetic level.
For example, a sunrise signifies the beginning of a new day. For early morning go-getters or “early to bed early to rise” people a sunrise is an important emotional experience. Usually, the sunrise is not generally as splendid and as long as a sunset. This symbolic sunrise is rather quick and bright. Within minutes of a good sunrise the sun is shining bright and yellow in the sky.
It is the beginning of a new day and the good things it could bring make us feel rejuvenated and refreshed. A picture of a good sunrise can hold this emotion for us in a permanent state.
Contrarily, the sunset signifies the end of the day. For the more reflective person enjoying a good sunset is a great way to soak up the events of the day, contemplate earlier daily activities and begin planning for tomorrow.
Visually both types of sun images are quite stunning, bringing out the entire range of the color spectrum as the power of refraction in different parts of the world creates a unique and heavenly natural light show.
A sunrise color palette changes quite dramatically depending on your perspective. You might see a variety of colors, including variations of warm glowing reds, faint yellows, light shades of brown, subtle blue hues and bright white light. Here are some incredible examples of natural sunrise color palettes that exhibit a complimentary color scheme, including many pastel colors.
At the end of the day a sunset can be a stunning and brilliant natural show of ever-changing color. Shades of pink, reds and yellow can all blend together behind a rich, dark blue sky creating a serene picture of pure spectacular wonder. A sunset’s color palette is quite impressive showcasing a wide range of color patterns.
