    Sunset but really they're probably on par with each other and I'm just biased towards the one I'm most often awake to witness. I've seen some cracking sunrises while in Scotland when sunrise time coincides with a time that I'm commuting to work.

    Both very pretty but sunset doesn't make me wake up early so I voted that one

    I voted tie, actually! They're both so beautiful, but they also look different (in my opinion) so...I dunno, I can't choose!

    I like both but, I'm more apt to see a sunset so I voted for that.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Sunsets tend to have more of the color palette that I like. Except there's nothing that compares to watching the sunrise at the asscrack of dawn on the edge of a high cliff.

    They are both equally beautiful.

    I have lovely memories of enjoying sunsets with friends, girlfriends etc... sunrises I generally remember being alone for but they are still gorgeous.

    I think we associate sunsets with friends and good times so it's natural they are remembered more fondly.

    Sunrise for me, actually. Sunsets in mountainous terrain can be a little bit of a let down, no pun intended, but sunrises... even if you're not in a place where you can see the sun as it crests the horizon there's something magical about the slow awakening of the day. Colors stretch over time from dusky purple, bright pink and burnt orange to golden. The earth shines with dew for a few brief moments creating crystalline forests in miniature that are so fleeting but so perfect. Everything is still for a little while as the nocturnal animals bed down for the day and the diurnal take their time waking.

    Yep. Sunrises for me.

    Signature by rubah. I think.

    You haven't lived if you haven't seen a Dubai sunset. My favourite past-time is bathing in the hot sea listening to the prayer call as the sun comes down and turns into the most intense reds and orange you've ever seen. Paradise.
