Sunsets are a strange thing, amazing to watch and enjoy yet many feel that they are not worthy of a place in landscape photography.

It's an interesting idea, the concept of not photographing one of the most spectacular, and common, natural events that you can witness.

Never the same twice, the sunset can give us plenty to think about as photographers of landscapes, as artists and as travellers in a foreign land and opportunities to work on photographic and artistic skills.

Here, a bright and colourful sunset over the north Atlantic as the sun descends below a large bank of cloud towards a clear horizon - all of its colour spreading underneath the clouds high above and lighting the ocean orange.

A beautiful moment I'm sure you'll agree. 

Here is another Antrim Coast sunset, from a less colourful but equally as inspiring sunset:

Join me to photograph scenes like these somewhere in Ireland of your choosing, by the coast is always a good idea but mountain sunsets are amazing too.
