Sunsets…. What is it about them that catches our eye?  Is it because it’s the end of the day?  Or is it because it’s a sign our workday is over and it heralds in our night play time, especially on a Friday. Or is it just the beauty of them when we actually take the time to stop what we are doing and pay attention to them?  These are just a few of my favorite photographs capturing sunsets and wanted to share.

An Obscured But Beautiful View Of A Sunset

Sunsets can be dramatic even when partially hidden like this one was.  Everyday nature has the ability to provide us with a brand new sunset you can sometimes only hope to capture and share with others.

The Last Beams Of Light From The Sun

The last of the suns rays reaching up into the sky, waving goodbye until tomorrow.

Life is too short to miss out on the beautiful free things we are afforded in our lives.  Take the time to just stop and enjoy them, even if just for a moment….


About VacationWanderer

I have 'wandered' pretty much around the world but still have a lot to see and experience. My favorite things to do in life are travel, photography, and learning new languages or foreign language phrases to use along the way. "Hello", "Thank You", and "Please" in any language will open many doors for you. :-) I love to share my travel experiences with people and hope to inspire those who are still just thinking about it.


  1. As the song says, “These are a few of my favorite things…” Lovely shots. We did a sunrise, sunset post not too long ago, and it was so hard to choose what to include. It seems when we’re traveling we’re much more focused on the beauty of the little things, on nature, and taking it all in.

    • Yeah sunrises are incredible. Sometimes just getting up for them is the hardest part for me. The one picture I submitted to the BBC’s”Your Pictures”, and it got published, was a fluke because I woke up out of a sound sleep just at the right time to catch it. Sunsets, beaches, people are my favorite things to photograph; and the anything else that catches my eye. :) Thanks so much for visiting my site and leaving a comment! Safe and happy wanderings! :)

    As you know I am a big sunrise, sunset, and night sky fan. I am very fortunate to live near the coast where the sunrise is only made more beautiful with the contrast of a big ocean. Nothing like a free color show from mother nature. LOVING THIS SITE!! TY Vacation Wanderer! Love to see the skies from other parts of the world!

  3. These are gorgeous sunsets! One of the things I love most about travel is that I often make time to view sunrises and sunsets far more than when I’m working.

    • Actually my most favorites are sunrises and night skies. Sunsets for sure can be beautiful as well. In fact there was one here, but I was at a border crossing and could not take a picture. Thank you very much for the compliment. I appreciate it very much. I am going to check your photo essay as well. Thanks again! :-)
