Evening and Morning, One Day

In Genesis 1, there is a counting of the day which repeats the phrase “evening and morning” as it counts each of the days of creation.  This led to a telling of time in which the new day begins with sunset.  Of course there are spiritual meanings in this time reference since  the sun itself is only created on the fourth day of creation, so one would have to think references to evening and morning in the beginning are not talking about sunsets and sunrises.

Be that as it may, I thought I would offer some images of evening and morning in photos I took in the course of the past twelve months, all to the glory of God the Creator.
