Pictures of Sunset (66 travel photos / pictures)

A collection of sunset pictures from around the globe including Italy, Germany, Canada, USA, New Zealand, and many more beautiful travel destinations.


Also known as sundown, sunset is a magical time of the day with soft light which spreads across the sky.

Generally sunset features more dramatic and bright colours than sunrise due to more particles in the sky at the end of the day.

Clouds tend to defuse the light and create very dramatic sunset scenes.
