"Sunset on the beach" - Biarritz France
|Photo courtesy of
Watching a spectacular sunset unfold before our very eyes is one of
life's most delicious little treats. Within a span of just a few
minutes the sky above the horizon can undergo several changes in
color and intensity, creating a serial "rainbow" that
somehow lifts the
weight of the day's troubles from our shoulders and calms our
I believe the setting sun is a message from our Creator telling us
that regardless of how badly the day might have gone, it is indeed
gone...and with the sunset comes the promise of yet another
sunrise, and the chance to have a better day tomorrow.

This is a beautiful photo, but of course all of the POTD's are
simply awesome. I told my son who currently lives far, far away in
Beijing, China about this site, and he has fallen in love with it as
I have. Great work to everyone involved with it!

I grew up across the state in North Myrtle Beach, and I can tell you
that I have seen some fabulous sunsets in my day. But never have I
seen one any prettier than the one in today's picture. Amazing.
