Since December of 2013 PJ Lifestyle has been collecting sunrise and sunset photos from contributors, readers, and Instagram. Now we’re going to begin an effort to organize the ongoing collection. New goals:
1. Collect a sunrise from every state in the union.
2. Collect a sunset from as many countries around the world as possible.
3. After getting all 50 states’ sunrises then switch to collecting their sunsets and begin the global sunrises collection.
Updated April 2014: 4. The extraordinary submissions of Mark Baird have inspired a new collection of photographs devoted specifically to our nation’s capital. We’re going to try and organize fantastic sunrise and sunset photos from all the different monuments and scenic views.
States that we still need to get: Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming
