Sunset

I don't think we have a sunset thread, and I thought that as sunsets can be some of the most breathtaking visions in our lives, it might be worth creating one as I'm sure many of you have beautiful sunset pictures to share also.

This one that I'm opening this thread with was taken yesterday. Unfortunately I only had my phone with me, so that's what it's taken with. I was on my way home and there was a fair bit of storm activity about and it created this (what in real life was a) magnificent and eerie shot. To me it looked more like the begining of an alien invasion than a sunset, but maybe that's just my imagination.

Anyway, here it is in all its slightly blurry and nowhere near complimentary glory.

Sunset at Venice Beach

I had a rare day off on a business trip about 2 years ago. I attempted a panorama, which is difficult without a tripod.

I happened to be there on a Sunday, which was when the natives had a drum circle to welcome the sunset. It must have worked because the sunset showed up.

Wow. Fantastic Rich. That second picture is striking.

@Ali...yours has a lot of drama in it and it brings Close Encounters of the Third kind to mind.

Juniper...very very pretty, soooo subtle.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking Pico, I just couldn't remember which movie it was actually from.

Yeah...they're called RoofTop Peaks.



Actually Twin Peaks is nearby...and this is a view of part of it. Do you see the gorilla?
