Amy said...

What a great idea for a 13 and i would have never known that was a sunrise because it's just so beautiful. i love the one looking from under the eiffel tower. so neat!

Happy0303 said...

Those are some very beautiful sunsets! I think the nicest one I've seen so far is from atop Haleakala in Maui.

MysteriousLady said...

I dream of seeing a sunset on Kenny Chesney's beach on the virgin Islands.

Red said...

I've got no time to do a T13 today (too much work on), but I still wanted to leave a comment!

I'd like to see a sunset in Japan. You know how they call it "Land of the Rising Sun" and everything. Well, I want to be contrary and see the sun set there!

Have fun today...

Scouser said...

Cool images. I would like to go back and watch the sunset on one of the islands off the west coast of Thailand. Scouser is back with another unusual T13

Susan said...

Wow! WOnderful pictures. I especially love number 3 - I have no clue where they are - but just seeing them through your camera is just fine for me!

My TT is up!

Ardice said...

Those are all so beautiful that I can't pick a favorite. I'd love to see a sunset in Alaska.

My list is up. Have a relaxing Thursday. Be Well...

Something's Missing said...

Anywhere but where I am now! :)

My Thursday Thirteen is up.

angela said...

I have no imagination at this moment, but I was overwhelmed with the thought that there are people in all these places, watching the sun set (or not...I guess that wouldn't be a requirement) and it is beautiful in every one of these places. God is amazing that way....I can't even make an arrangement of flowers look good all the way around. :-)

Lazy Daisy said...

Oh Wow, Love the concept and the photos. You rock girlfriend. My TT is up!

Reverberate58 said...

Carmen you are so lucky to have traveled so mucha and seen our beautiful world! And then share the beauty with us! Thanks!
13. I would love to see a sunset in my own back yard! Too many trees. Just goes black!!
My T13 is up! I hope you have a terrific Thursday!

Mandy said...

Great 13! Such beautiful pictures! I love my Lake Ontario sunsets.

Natsthename said...

I have been to exactly NONE of those places, but I'll just dream of watching a sunset in Guam. They were the best, and I watched them for almost 4 years of my life. Someday I'll go back...

Karen said...

while they are all gorgeous, and all make my jealous- I love the Paris one.

Andrew said...

Beautiful sunsets. Nice work!

modern princess said...

Those are some amazing sunsets!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

I couldn't resist looking at the answers. They were just right under me. You haven't seen the beautiful sunset here in our Country at Manila Bay.
Thanks for dropping by.

Lisa said...

What beautiful images, Carmen! Great idea too. I couldn't begin to tell you where most of them were taken although one looks like the Eiffel Tower and one in Rome.

Thanks for coming by my 13 and have a good Thursday.

amy said...

love the Paris and Egypt sunrises! one day, I'll get there. I have a list of places I'd like to visit.

Love #4, 11, 12. The pyramid almost looks like the roof of a house...but some of us know better! I love sunsets too!

Jane said...

What beautiful sunsets. I have always felt that sunsets were so peaceful. Love it.
Thanks for visiting my T13. I will have to give some thought to where I would like to see a sunset.

Barbara said...

I love them all! Sunsets are so beautiful. We came in other afternoon, and my husband ran to get the camera to take the sunset. But, by the time he got back out, the clouds were covering it. :(Thanks for visiting.

Southern Girl said...

Wow, incredible pictures! Thanks for sharing them!

Pass The Torch said...

Nicole said...

I think number 2 is my favorite. Seeing those make me want to go to the beach!!

Happy TT!

Mom Nancy said...

I love the one from Paris! I love the Eiffel Tower.

I dream of being in Elgin Ontario, in the cabin on the lake my in-laws rent every year. It is my favorite spot in the world. So relaxing. I relax just thinking of it.

Gail said...

Gorgeous photos! I think I can only identify the one in Rome, but they are all so good.
Thanks for visiting mine.

robin said...

Your pictures are beautiful! Thanks for stopping by my TT!

#3 is in Paris? and is that the sunrise?

Heather Smith said...

I love to watch the sunset at our lake.

Sarah said...

I miss the sunsets in upstate NY where I went to college. It was flat farmland, and they took up the entire sky.

Amy The Black said...

Ahhhh. Nice! I used to have a sunset mural on my wall during high school.

AuntieM said...

Mine #13 would be at the place in N. GA that we hope to purchase, with a view of the mountains.

angelsarentfree said...

Definitely Bora Bora. Love this idea, sunsets and sunrises are my favorite.

Christina said...

Ooooo, I LOVE sunsets! So pretty and romantic. There are so many places I'd love to see one, but I think for today, my dream sunset would be in the desert somewhere with cacti in the foreground. Really, any sunset with my husband around is fine with me.

Shannon said...

Gorgeous. Beautiful!

angelsarentfree said...

Definitely Bora Bora for me. Love this idea!

Sophisticated Writer said...

Great T13, thanks for visiting mine as well! :)

Have a great day!

Mama Duck said...

Beautiful!!

kontan said...

My favorite are the beach sunsets that we have, sorry I couldn't find a link to pics. I also have a great one of our backyard where two geese decided to snuggle in our pond. It was the perfect love scene with the low light LOL

Trish said...

Gaw-ge-us!! Love your TT! Got.. erm.. one right.. the one with the pyramid. Pfft. I'm a goober. :)

Dorothy said...

I was going to say number 1 was your backyard. I love these Carmen.

I know being single can be a drag, but you've sure had some awesome adventures!

My BIL is still single, he's 46...but he's traveled all over too and is having a great time.

Rachel said...

Those were really beautiful!

Butterfly Kisses said...

At first I was going to write..ooooooo I like number two or oooooooo I like number 4, but then I realized that I love all of them. They are gorgeous.

Lisa said...

I must tell you every one of these are beautiful. I just love sunsets and sunrises. They are simply breathtaking. No other way to put it. I would have never been able to guess any of them though. I didnt do a t13 today, but figured I would drop by and say hi anyway! Have a good one!

Just Expressing Myself said...

Lovely photos!
I'm guessing one is your backyard.
And I would love to see the sun set at Mailbu Beach.
Thanks for sharing
Frances

Titanium said...

I love those pics.. especially #7 & 11. What a neat idea. :)

Melli said...

GOOD LORD you have a big following woman!

I think #1 must be the one in your backyard -- cuz I think I took one on that saaaaame day! #4 has to be gay Paris! And #8 would be Egypt.... and the rest I'm totally lost on.

I'd like to see a sunset in Greece. Or Ireland. Or Alaska! *sigh* ... I need a better job!

GreekGoddess said...

I have to show you one from Sandorini (Greek island)... rumor has it it's one of the most beautiful in the world.. tourists gather only to see it :) Great TT

eph2810 said...

I love sunrises AND sunsets. I was able to identify Paris, Rome and Egypt. What wonderful places you have been.:)
My favorite for a sunset: San Carlos, Mexico, directly on the beach - yeah - great place and I wish I were there with my Sweetheart right now.
