1 Day 1 World Project: 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm (Portland)

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:)

  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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:)


    • 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.:)


  5. 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!


Thank you for visiting! Love to hear from you...
