I am a sucker for a good sunset.  In my opinion, a good sunset is one of nature’s best ways of showing off!  While I love the sunsets in our hometown, the sunsets we see during our travels are of particular interest to me, especially the last sunset of any given trip we’re on.  This is something very symbolic to me – I see it as the sun setting on another great adventure.  But, much like the sunrise, I also know that our next trip will be here before we know it, and both always give me something to look forward to.  We’ve been fortunate to witness some amazing views, as the sunsets have lit up the clouds and turned the sky all sorts of colors, some lasting for what feels like hours.  Here are seven stunning sunsets from around the states and shores.

1. Honolulu, Hawaii

2. St. John’s, Antigua

3. Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

4. Basseterre, St. Kitts

5. Negril, Jamaica

6. Marathon, Florida

7. Victoria, British Columbia

I can’t wait to see many more sunsets from so many more amazing destinations!  And, we must remember…

  1. Ahh wonderful photos! I think some of the best sunsets we’ve ever seen have been in the Caribbean. You just can’t beat the sound of the water, a cocktail and a sunset, one of my favourite things in a life!

    1. Yes, the Caribbean has amazing sunsets and I’m probably a little biased towards them! Add in some steel drums and that’s my idea of heaven!

  2. Tons of beautiful sunsets here! I like your outlook on them; that the last one ends the trip, but like the sunrise, a new trip will come soon. So true! Our favorite sunset is probably a toss-up between an incredible one we saw in Montego Bay (Jamaica) and the almost constant ones we saw in Iceland in November. They’re all so pretty … and so different! 🙂

  3. Beautiful shots! My favourites are the ones from Hawaii but all of the are gorgeous. I took some lovely ones in Croatia this year but my favourite sunset shot I took a few months ago in the UK as a storm was building! #feetdotravel

    1. Thank you! I love sunsets when storms are brewing. The electricity in the air makes them all the more magical!

  4. As I sit here in North Bali waiting to see whether we will get a sunset tonight over Mount Agung, this really is the perfect post to read! Once again you and I are like kindred spirits as sunrises are an important part of a trip for me – I just love the colours of the sky and they can all be so very different. I was reading this wondering if you would have one from Jamaica (there were seriously so many amazing sunsets in Jamaica I would find it hard to pick just one photo!) so I’m happy to see you included one from Negril. Thank you for a glorious post! #feetdotravel

    1. I really tried to limit myself on photos here and actually took a few out. Jamaica does have some amazing sunsets and sunrises, as I’m sure Bali does too! I also like to get up early and enjoy the sunrise (I usually take a boatload of pictures on the last sunrise of our trip too because the light is the perfect color). But, there’s just something about those sunsets! Can’t wait to see some of yours from all over the world!

  5. Wow, that part of the world is blessed with some incredible sunsets! I think Negril ones are my favourite on your list – but they are all beautiful! Thanks for sharing and a great post idea!

    1. Hey, thanks! We were lucky enough to catch that sunset from the cliffs at Rick’s Café. Negril is said to have some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, and I can see why!

    1. Thank you so much – so glad you enjoyed this post. I’m so happy these pictures turned out – low light photography can be hard. At least we’re working on improving our skills!

  6. I just love sunsets and you have captured some wonderful stunning sunsets! I love them all and can not just pick one. I bet you have loads of photos like I do of sunsets and sunrises. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  7. Just beautiful, especially that second one from Negril. That’s the part of sunset I love best – the deeper colors after the sun has disappeared over the horizon.

    1. Me too, I always wait at least 20 minutes after the sun has set – that’s when the real colors start to come out!

  8. We have been blessed to see some beautiful sunsets in the Caribbean and Florida where we grew up. My favorite sunset that you captured was in Jamaica, those pics are so beautiful. We think the prettiest sunsets are on the west coast in Oregon where we live now but we are biased. Beautiful post.

    1. I remember enjoying some great sunsets when we visited Portland. So many great sun-spotting locations to choose from!

  9. Yay a post dedicated to sunsets! I loved watching the sunsets in New Zealand and Key West. New Zealand offers such great landscape and from Key West it’s just the ocean as far as the eye can see.

    1. Yes, Key West has great sunsets! I was glad to capture the one in Marathon, which is just north of there. One day, we’ll catch a sunset in New Zealand too!

  10. Wow, just wow! Those are all stunning! The colours there are so vivid and awesome. Wish I was by the water now so I could catch something like this.

  11. This is a much-needed post!! Sunsets are my favourite thing and seeing them all compared like that is great! 🙂 My best sunsets where probably in Morocco – they had that amazing Arabian nights feel about them!
