Gorgeous sunrises, sunsets...

We're celebrating the start of British Summer Time by dreaming of favourite sunrises and sunsets. And we'd love to hear about the most stupendous spots for sunset/rise watching you know - regular favourites or one-off wonders. Tell us all about it in full technicolour and if you have pics add them too.... And here's what the Country Walking office reckoned... - Box Hill, Surrey - Thornham Beach, Norfolk - The Fens - from my dining room on a Sunday - Bamburgh Beach, Northumberland - the Seven Sisters from Seaford Head - and a tequila one (there's always somebody)..... Cheers, Jenny Staff writer

Definitely the Fens, those enormous skies and that beautiful, uninterrupted black land gives fantastic sunsets all year round

The attached photo was taken early on 30 Jul 06 as the rising sun cast the shadow of Mt Teide on Tenerife across the cloud covered sea on to the island of La Gomera.

Not something I have pictures of but for a while I was comuting by the river Derwent at sunrise in the winter. The sight of mist rising of the fields and fresh sunshine really uplifted the sprits on the way to work.

Pupil: An hour? A short walk? Why? What do you call a long one? Me: Oooh.... about 3 days. 2nd Pupil: Where do you sleep???! Me: Errr... In a tent!

Summit camping near Loch Arcaig, this about 2230 last May-ish. [IMG]http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t215/ptcs-photies/lochywildcamp0572.jpg[/IMG] It's a bit fuzzy, but the colours are nice :o)
