1 Day 1 World Project: 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm

9p -10p_

I captured this sunset scene with my iPhone when I was in Portland last week. I sat there watching the clouds turning from dusty blue to dark blue, and the changing colors of the sunset at the same time. It was 9:22 pm in Oregon.

The duration of daylight in the Pacific Standard Time Zone is a little longer than the Central Time Zone. For example, during the first two weeks of July, it’s between 5:30 am 9:00 pm in Portland, but 6:30 am and 8:30 pm in south Texas.

Take a look of Lisa’s beautiful photo and join the 1 day and 1 world project :)

  3. A very rich sunset, and lovely photo, Amy. Interesting to see it turn dark at different times, isn’t it? I noticed the same thing in Seattle 2 weeks ago.

      • Yes there is. :) I went to college in Portland and loved living in the city. Plus it’s only a 1 hr drive to the coast!

      That you, Amanda! The view we don’t get to see very often. :)

  11. This is the kind view and photo that would inspire color in a woven piece. Beautiful!

    • Amy

      Thank you! I’d love to see the woven piece :)

  12. Sunset and Sunrises are a constant reminder to me that each day is special and we should not take them for granted. I really liked your description of how the clouds changed colors as the sun set for the day.

      Thank you, Patrick! I know I take them for granted. I’m glad I could share this one with you.
      Have a great day!

      Thank you, Rommel! This snap shot will always remind me the experience of watching the remarkable sky view.

  14. That’s so funny that you should mention the difference in sunset based on geography, I was thinking of that when I saw some of the responses for this week.

      Thank you for reading, Peter :)

  15. So beautiful… :-)

      Thank you, Drake. Only captured maybe 1/200 second of the changing scene :)

      July 9, 2014 at 6:58 pm

  16. So pretty!! It’s wonderful that Portland is included in your posts, Amy. We do tend to have some naturally beautiful sunsets here. Sometimes, depending on where you are, it’s worth taking a peek to the east at sunset as well. The alpenglow on Mt. Hood is also beautiful. If you’re in PDX again, take a look :)

      I love to go back to Portland again and again. Such a beautiful state. We visited the gardens, waterfalls, river…

      July 9, 2014 at 5:09 pm

      • Good to hear… those were all terrific choices. The foot bridge at Multnomah Fall was recently repaired… great timing for your visit ;)

          Oh, I love Pearl street :)

          July 9, 2014 at 6:53 pm

  17. Fabulous, Amy. I remember how beautiful those long summer twilights were, but your shot, with the city down at the rosy horizon is something special. :)

    July 9, 2014 at 5:58 pm

    • Amy

      Thank you, M! Watching the changing colors of the sky minute by minute was an indescribable experience that probably no camera can capture. You’re are so right, the rosy horizon is something very special. :)

      July 9, 2014 at 6:52 pm

  18. How did you do the sky like that? It is beautiful!

    July 9, 2014 at 9:07 pm

    • Amy

      Beauty of the nature, amazing!

      July 10, 2014 at 7:52 am

  19. That’s one big sky, Amy.

    • Amy

      and we can always look up and appreciate the beauty :) Thank you for visiting, seeker!

      July 10, 2014 at 7:53 am

  20. This is gorgeous Amy! Our sun set peaks at almost 10pm now and it is hard to get the kids to bed on time, but I love the long hours of beautiful day light. In winter it sets at 430 which is way too early!

    July 10, 2014 at 12:57 pm

  21. what a lovely capture, Amy! it is beautiful! love the stunning pink horizon and blue skies!

    July 10, 2014 at 1:01 pm
