My favourite… Sunsets


Sunset over Marrakech

I’ve been running a series of photos over on Facebook recently, choosing a photo each week of somewhere hot, sunny and exotic to chase away the winter chills. And a lot of them seem to feature spectacular sunsets from around the world. Whether the sun’s setting over the sea, silhouetted against a palm tree or across a city skyline, there’s something warming about those shades of orange, pink and yellow that can’t help but cheer you up. So as the UK braces itself for another week of sleet and icy winds, here are some of my favourite sunsets from around the world – from Indonesian beaches to New York city skyscrapers.
