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.

God made the moon to govern the night (Genesis 1:16)
The sun knows the time for setting (Psalm 104:19)
When the sun rises, humans go to work (Psalm 104:23).
The Mighty One, God the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. (Psalm 50:1)
You make darkness and it is night. (Psalm 104:20)
God gives the moon for light by night. (Jeremiah 31:35)
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning… (Genesis 1:31)

And they shall stand every morning, thanking and praising the LORD, and likewise at evening… (1 Chronicles 23:30)
