37 Photos Of Sunsets To Inspire You


While some photography curmudgeons regard them as a bit of a cliche, we love them and let's face it – most people with a pulse love sunset photography. The colours, the moods and the power of composition all come together in an evocative way to produce strong images.

And secretly, sunset photography is about my favourite genre to shoot myself too.

So with that, I wanted to put together a short collection of some of the better sunset photos that I have seen lately. If you'd like to get into shooting photographs like these, then I would strong suggest you take a look at our landscape photography page for ideas for gear, composition and light.

And if you're ready, some shots like these would make extremely popular submissions to our monthly photography competition and you might even pick up $250 for your efforts! You can enter that here.
