A year of sunsets

Over a year ago, I did a photo theme post on sunsets. The sun has since set multiple times, and I’ve been lucky enough to witness some spectacular sunsets since that last post, so here, as the year starts to set, are some of my absolute favourites from the past year. Enjoy!

  3. Love these photos. I'm completely obsessed with sunset photos at the minute. Particularly like the first two with the light reflected in the water - beautiful.

  4. Thanks so much :) I absolutely love sunsets, I think it's the fact that they are always different! The first one at Muriwai was wonderful because the beach was so large and flat that if you got a low tide at sunset, the water reflections went on for miles and miles. Of all the places in NZ to watch a sunset, that is possibly the best!

  5. Gorgeous photos, Laurence! I especially love the ones with the water reflections, which have always fascinated me for some reason. One of these days I'm gonna do a series of nothing but water reflection shots...

  6. Thanks very much Bret! I love water reflections too.. if I find a still lake or river I can quickly frustrate my travelling companions with my need to stand and click!
