My 5 Best Sunset Pictures of 2015

2015 was a blessed year for me in terms of travel. I visited 4 foreign countries, the highest so far in one year and also traveled a bit in India. Capturing sunrise becomes a little difficult with all that hectic travel sunsets are easier to capture. Here are my best sunset pictures of 2015. None of them were planned. It was taken while on a drive. The one from Malaysia was taken when we lingered for long in the beach.

Best sunset pictures

1.Sunset in Shimoga, India.

This was taken during my recent visit to Shimoga in Decemeber 2015.

Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful

but because they are fleeting.     — Richard Paul Evans

It is almost impossible to watch a sunset

and not dream.     — Bern Williams

Know where to find the sunrise and sunset times and note

how the sky looks at those times, at least once. — Marilyn vos Savant
