I like sunsets and sunrises, sunsets maybe more because of nostalgia.

Perfect image of Japanese nature, wires blocking every calming view.

Power pylons? Where's Godzilla?

Cool. Is Godzilla really going to show up in this picture tomorrow? Cool. I knew the big guy would be back.

@ivarwind. unfortch the pylons dominate the view from our viranda. however, my aim was to incorporate both in an ironic way..... :-)

If it was a pylon obscuring a pagoda, it might be ugly - here it's beautiful, and makes for a far more interesting photo than the sunset alone would.

I`m glad you like the photo, @marcels it was taken in the evening..Idashed for the camera and tripod plus changed the lens to zoom and added a red filter for the desired affect. Camera: Nikon D5000. I like the ugliness of the pylon and the beauty of the sunset....so Japan.

For those asking about the difference between a sunset and sunrise, I find that sunsets tent to tint the sky orange while sunrises tend to tint the sky pink.

I think the main thing is a sunset is going from light to dark so the sky is dimming and a sunrise is going from dark to light so the sky is lighting up.

How does one tell a rising sun from a setting sun?

Interestingly, it is possible to tell a rising moon from a setting moon (without a compass), provided that you know whether the moon is waxing or waning and provided that the moon is not full or new.

Looks like a scene from Godzilla just before the star arrives.

Whether or not you're drinking a beer. Unless you're a complete alcoholic, in which case there is no way of distinguishing the two.

Johnny Carson used to say that Ed McMahon was a light drinker. As soon as it got light outside, he started to drink.

Re: pic, nice sunset, ugly wires and metal crap.

Omiya is a great place to live and party - all the fun starts after the sun goes down!!

200,000 volts of 3 phase power never looked so serene and peaceful. Bravo.

Nice photo, pity about the pylon. There hasn't been any news from Saitama (a reservation on the outskirts of Tokyo for those who don't know) for a while so this was needed to fill the gap until the next bit of stupidity from there.

I'll bet if Dr.McCoy saw this photo, he'd say "It's a miracle these people ever got out of the 20th century."

Nice sunset. A bit of a letdown after the Hooters picture, but that couldn't be helped.
