Sunset color palettes are palettes developed from colors existing in images of sunsets. They typically have variations of orange, but can include shades of blue, pink, purple, and red. Often the palette will include not only colors from the sun and sky, but also the ground upon which the sun is reflected in the image.
Once the sun had set on our Sunsets and Color Palettes post the search was underway for the yin to its yang. Knowing how photographers like to turn to the skies to capture the natural colors that each new day paints upon the waiting canvas, we have turned our attentions there as well. Once more showcasing some inspiring photos, this time of sunrises, and offering the accompanying color palettes derived from them.
The first time around was such a hit, and even as one reader commented asking to see a version of the posts from this side of the coin, we were planning this one. The differences in the colors between the skies at sunrise versus sunset seems somewhat more subdued, and less fiery. The softer colors that tend to show up in skies come morning ease us into our days, and in this case, provide oodles of inspiration for designers and more.
