17 amazing sunsets to brighten your day

by Victor Eekhof

Sunsets, and sunrises for that matter, are the most amazing things in the world; I think that is one thing we can all agree on. If world peace would ever happen, there would probably be a sunset in the background. You might not notice them every day when you commute to and from work in a foggy skyscraper-filled city, but when you are traveling and taking long distance buses at crazy hours suddenly they become more and more evident. Here is a collection of sunsets and sunrises I’ve seen in different locations all over the world. All pictures are unedited and taken with a Canon Powershot SX210 IS point-and-shoot or worse, so not a fancy schmancy SLR.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands
