16+ photos depict the breathtaking beauty of the sunscapes in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico.
Photographer Peter West Carey demonstrates that the hours between dusk and dawn are nothing compared to Mexico’s sunrises and sunsets.
What is it about sunsets and sunrises that captivate us? They make us feel insignificant. They serve as a reminder that we live on a spinning planet and are held in place by gravity — a force far more powerful than we could ever be. They make us feel powerful. Of course, time passes as it always does, but when you catch those golden shards of light in your eye, you have the impression that all you have is time; time to breathe and think. They provide us with a sense of security.
Knowing that, even though the day is giving way to twilight and night, it will return tomorrow is reassuring.
Some parts of the world set the scene better than others, and Mexico is frequently blessed with ideal conditions that allow the colors and warmth to radiate from the horizon. It helps to have over 43,450km (27,000 mi) of coastline to view this daily blessing from.
Take a break from your worries for a few moments and enjoy a variety of sunsets and sunrises from the Caribbean to the Sea of Cortes and beyond.
