5th Floor Window

These are the views from my 5th Floor Window. I guess it is already a bit famous as I have been posting lots of my shots from this position. I hope you will not blame me, as I only have a 180° view from this window facing west. My little corner of the world is fixed and limited to this side alone.  I only have the sunsets, and the sunrise I fully give the  privilege to others! 


I realized sunsets are like our finger prints, or probably like DNA, no two sunsets are alike! And they change every second, as the drama only lasts from 15-20 minutes. Moreover, i observed that for this year, the sun first moved to the right and then back to the far left without passing through the backward path, as in 1 to 10 and then back to 1 again. Maybe the earth just suddenly flipped a big turn. I chose the same spot with almost the same subject to show the magnitude of differences, throughout the months.These are all shots this year.

November, can you guess what animal is that?

Clouds are heavier and thicker during the rainy season. Sometimes the sun can't even be seen near the edge of the horizon because of the heavy clouds. But when they open, an intense sunset is more beautiful.

  9. Great shots! You are right no two sunsets are alike. In spite of the fact that you took all your photos from the same position, they are all different and interesting! Thank you for sharing.
    Thank you for visiting and commenting. We don't have often mist and we also have many cloudless skies like in the tropics, where I grew up. Yesterday we had a sunny day and a blue sky. Have a great weekend!

  14. These are really beautiful. I was driving home from work tonight as the sunset. It was pretty, but nothing like the drama elsewhere in the world. It is so rare for us to see these type of skies firsthand and always a pleasure to see them in other places.

  21. Definitely a billy goat! And you are right, there are no two identical skies, so just keep shooting, Andrea! Our place is in the midst of gorgeous greenery, but it blocks the sky.

  23. Andrea, you could almost start a "Sunset photo of the day" blog, you have such beautiful skies to enjoy. You're right--every single one is different, and they're all remarkable in their own way.

  26. Its a little puppy!

    We are so lucky to have a window office! I can see sunset at a distance from the 19th floor, all the way from Santa Monica.

    The colors and the roundness of the sun are so inviting!
