I love sunsets. I absolutely love them. I never tire of watching the sky magically change colors right before my eyes. There's something so tranquil about being still and watching the sun wrap up its work for the day...saying good night with a random painting of color. Living in a suburb of Columbus, sometimes it is more difficult than I'd like to find spots that offer a really good view of the sunset. Between trees, houses, and buildings, I can catch glimpses of the sky but not usually a wide open view.
This led me to throw out a question to all my Facebook friends (on both my personal and photography pages) asking where their favorite spots to watch the sunset were here in Central Ohio. Not one person commented. Not one. Out of 500 and some people. That rarely, and I do mean rarely, happens. How could this be? Do people not have favorite sunset spots? Or...even more unimaginable, are people not stopping to enjoy the sunsets?! Say it isn't so.
I'm still trying to figure that one out. In the meantime, I googled. Then I Yelped. Then I took to Trip Advisor. Come to find out, there isn't a whole lot out there in terms of finding great sunset spots that are publicly accessible here in the Columbus area. Now I'm on a mission! I am determined to compile a list of great spots to watch in Central Ohio before the summer is out.
