40 Stunning Examples of Sunset Photography

The thing about Sunset photography is, you never get tired from taking its beautiful shots. Sunrises and sunsets are the most amazing parts of a day. That magma look on the clouds, the sparkling horizons and dazzling mountains – the sunsets are just amazing.

One of the most difficult challenges budding photographers face when taking photographs of sunsets is that they aren’t able to scope out the position from where to take photographs. Most of the times, they will take photos of the sun head-on, which ruins the photographs. The trick is to always plan sunset photographs. Select the location, the time and the position from where you will take the photograph and you will end up taking a beautiful photograph.

The sunset photographs we have collected will act as an inspiration and help you take your own stunning sunset photos. You will get a pretty decent idea of how to take photographs of sunsets that look just amazing.

    I won’t bother arguing on some technical merit concerning Photography, because I am no professional photographer! However, I can tell you that, as an artist, I judge beauty according to aesthetics, and these photos are absolutely like a tall drink of water to my eyes! There is so much for the eye to see in these crisp, brilliant and stunning images! Thank you for sharing these! It was just what I needed after a long emotional and stormy day (a very close loved one is dying)! These sunsets, in a way, are very symbolic to the close of one’s life–let us only hope that ours will be as brilliant and beautiful as these! Take care and God bless!

  11. Hey There. I found your blog the application of ask. This is usually a very well created post. We’ll always take a note of this accessible here we are at study excess of your respective helpful information. Thanks for the actual posting. Let me definitely comeback.

  12. Actually when someone doesn’t know then its up to other people that they will assist, so here it takes place.

  13. I agree that the balloon shot is a fake. I also have issues with the camel shot. It appears to have had the majority of the photo darkened to make it appear like the remaining bright spot is the sun. Nice, but real?
    Further, The sun seems to have forgotten to cast it’s golden hue on anything but the water in the Venice photo. Very selective of it!

  14. I am interested to visit

  15. Felt nice seeing your collection. They are really awesome.

  16. AVAISOME

  17. Great shots :)

    Sunrise photos are great for morning inspiration and these sunset photos are for positive thinking that the new sun will bring more happiness and success tomorrow.

  18. Nice collection, very inspiring shots.
    Here is one from my side:

    good

  20. Maybe tmi, but if someone’s interested, the ninth frame is a
    sunset at Tunnels Beach, Kuaui, HI just east of the Na’Pauli coast and is a world-class dive-spot. A U. S. best.

  21. My sunset shot:

  22. Nice collection but the balloon photo (Sundowner Silhouette) is a fake.

    1. There are 4 balloons that are exactly alike. Look close and you’ll see them.
    2. Balloonists don’t like to fly at sunset due to the warm air temps. They have a difficult time keeping altitude.
    3. No visible burner flames. When balloonists are hovering this low to the ground, they keep the burner flames going in case they have gain altitude quickly.
    4. There is a flare spot on the right that is also reflected in the water.

    Seriously, if you’re going to pick sunset photos, at least pick real ones. I’ve seen so many incredible sunsets that I know you do not need to fake them.

  23. You might what to consider the.validity of the.image before calling it “The Best Sunset Photos.”

    The hot air balloons are so fake. And how can you tell?
    1. They’re all alike.
    2. Balloonists dont like flying at sunset due to the air temp being too warm That’s why they fly in the morning.
    3. Not one of the balloons has a visible flame in the burner. When they are flying that close to the ground, they keep the flame on low in case they have to burn fast in order to gain altitude quickly.
    4. Even the lens flare on the right is reflected on the water.

  24. Wow :) Awesome collection of sunset photography. Thanks for share this wonderful post. :)
