Ladies n' gentlemen, please
Would you bring your attention to these
Its a feast for your eyes to see
An explosion of sun so pretty
Like nothing youve ever seen before
Watch closely as I open this door
Your jaws will be on the floor
After these youll be beggin for more

Some from Chicagoland (western burbs). Midwest color is best:

Nice photos Steve-O. Not sure what you mean by "Midwest color is best" though. I've seen nicer sunsets in the Southwest on a "bad day". Cheers.

I agree. If you love the sun and the ocean, Florida is the place.

Here are some more sunsets in the Tampa Bay area

You must have never visited California. The real sunshine state.

Either you never have been either or didn't bother to look up at the sky. They don't call it "May Gray" and "June Gloom" for nothing. The coast is the least sunny part of CA, especially the northern part.

God forbid anyone say anything positive about Florida, even if its true . Did you even bother to look at the pictures I posted? Or did it burn you eyes too much to see Florida's true beauty.

Why can't you just post some pictures instead of ruining another perfectly good thread .

I was waiting for those west coast FL sunsets. (I've never seen a better sunset then the one I saw in Fort Myers)
Thanks for posting.

Sherman came back, did he?

OK I know I'm going to Hell for saying that but I just couldn't help it, sorry. Very vibrant sunset, by the way.
