    For a couple of weeks, I've seen three or four good sunrises.

    A great part of my daily commute happens to be right in the coast (mediterranean, Barcelona), right where many tourists love to go down the beach. It's a great sight for the morning commute, with very nice seascape, but impossible to take pictures of.

    The first one was particularly impressive, lovely to see the light building up. Hold a very orange-red on the sunrise side, and pinkish-violet on the other side of the sky. For the whole of it. Really nice. Sadly I entered the tunnels before it completely decayed.
    Cirrus give good sunsets, but sometimes, those stratocumulus that hold a very strong orange-red are more impressive.

    As of sunsets, they are quite nice, but not particularly impressive. Here, seemingly, Colours get much better at twilight, not when the sun is touching the horizon.

    I always look in the opposite direction to gauge. If the clouds have a glow then there's a good chance the sunset will be decent.

    Yeah, every frame of Velvia has a superimposed sunset now. All the photographer has to do is find a round boulder for the foreground.

    Agree with the storm suggestion.

    I prefer grass or something artsy, like a decaying car.

    I think you're on to something there.

    Note the film type

    I've virtually given up sunsets unless they are over a lake or the sea. The reflection off the water delivers two sunsets for the price of one. And it's a sure way of avoiding the dreaded "amateur" sunset...colourful stuff in the top of the frame, amorphous black mass in the bottom half!
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    A good sunset is any day I'm not stuck in the evening freeway commute. Ideally, I'm camped beside a
    10,000 ft lake in the High Sierra with no one else around for fifteen miles in any direction. Those sunsets are always the best.
