These red sunsets are so beautiful and I had to, once again, photograph the pretty scene. This picture was taken at 9:30 PM in the evening so the days are getting shorter and shorter here in northern Norway.

Take a look at this photo that I took back in May. That was the most amazing red sunset I have ever seen!

    This is absolutely stunning! I have beautiful sunrises where I live—and each of them are so different from the next. Great stuff!

    What a spectacular photograph! You captured the magic of a sunset (hard thing to do). I sent this on to my husband because I know he’ll love it too!

    Beautiful color. We get red sunsets around here, but it usually means there is smoke or dust in the air.
