Sunset Pictures are one of my passions! I captured this beautiful image of the sun setting over the North Fork Valley, Colorado, from Minnesota Creek. From this vantage point at the upper east end of the valley, the western end of Grand Mesa is visible to the far right of the image, with the Uncompahgre Canyon and 25 Mesa comprising the remainder of the horizon.
As the sun set proceeded, the colors became even more stunning…
Moments later is dissolved into a brilliant, molten orange color with accents of flashy gold in the clouds above…
I certainly enjoyed capturing these beautiful Sunset Pictures, I hope you enjoy them as well!
Almost everyone enjoys a beautiful Sunrise Sunset picture. The stunning shades of pink, purple, and orange blend together into one spectacular display of natures’ beauty.
These amazing scenes captivate us so much that they represent some of the most famous scenes in movies, and are associated with romance, and calming ambiance. Even though we know that they are caused by sunlight shining through particles in our atmosphere, and some are even made more wondrous by the addition of smoke or smog, we continue to watch the pre-dawn sky, the horizon at dusk, just as mankind has done for eons.
Below you will find a gallery of stunning pictures of Sunrises and Sunsets to drool over, use as your desktop background, and show your friends!
The history of Water Fountains extends back thousands of years, and throughout that time Fountains have served both decorative and functional purposes. This article provides information about the history of fountains, as well as Cool Fountain Pictures for you to enjoy!
Fountains were first conceived of and constructed in areas with arid climates, where water was scarce and thereby precious. Due to the harsh, dry climates in which they lived, the peoples of these ancient cultures were forced to become creative where water storage and delivery were concerned, if they were to build a permanent civilization.
The citizens of Ancient Rome collected their water from public fountains which were supplied by an extensive cistern system. These ancient fountains utilized water pressure and gravity flow to facilitate the flow of water through the fountains. By the 4th century BC Rome was home to an amazing 1352 fountains, some more elaborate than others, which were a great source of pride to the Romans. Along with the fresh water supply the fountains provided, they were also a source of functional, captivating beauty, and sculptural art which became some of the most well-known fountains in the world.
Later examples of fountains were the Moorish water gardens in Spain, as well as the countless fountains found all over Europe, and those found in India and China.
Today fountains have gained additional pizazz with the use of mechanized pumps, which project water much higher into the air, and underwater lighting, which creates stunning displays at night. Since modern water fountains are no longer designed for water collection by the public, most of these decorative fountains do not contain potable water which is safe to drink. Instead they are designed for the sole purpose of adding stunning beauty to their surroundings, gracing city landscapes and parks with their undeniable splendor.
The creativity used to design these amazing works of art has always been admirable, though as we travel into the future Fountains are sure to continue to gain in magnificence and captivating beauty!
