It’s my favourite time of the day: when the sun sets and the ensuing twilight. A dazzling display of colour, then a serene interlude before the darkness sets in. Wherever I am, I always make it a point to stop for a moment if the weather is good and enjoy the sunset. They never cease to amaze me, and I often find their colours and majesty absolutely inspiring. Countless photos have been taken of this magnificent natural phenomenon around the world and I’ve taken my fair share. I’ve put together a collage of sunset photos I’ve taken around the world. This is my special tribute to that great wonder of our fair planet: sunsets.
