The Beauty of Sunset: 40 Gorgeous Photographs

Sunset is one of the most beautiful daily sights.  Although they occur every day, the quality and majesty of a given sunset depends largely on the amount of clouds, the amount of particulate matter in the air, the angle of the sun, and the location.  Every so often, all the variables come together just right, and a beautiful sunset is born.

This post showcases the intrinsic beauty in sunsets, by bringing together 40 gorgeous photographs for your viewing enjoyment.  Each was hand-picked for the perfect balance of colors, contrast and scenery.  If you like them, please visit each photographer’s portfolio, linked on each photograph, and consider buying a print to help support the photographers who continue to amaze us all.
