Home >> Sultry Sunset

I love sunset pictures, even if they are supposedly the least sought after pictures on stock libraries. It's a creative palette that no-one can interfere with. Natures very own canvas to show us her magnificence every day, without fail. She's magnificent in the morning and magnificent in the evening, even if we take no notice.

Sultry Sunset

It is often written that natural and manmade dust and pollution cause colorful sunrises and sunsets. If it were strictly true that tropospheric dust and haze were responsible for brilliant sunsets, cities such as New York, Los Angeles, London, and Mexico City would be celebrated for their twilight hues. The truth is that tropospheric aerosols --- when present in abundance as they often are over continental areas --- do not enhance sky colors --- they subdue them. Clean air is, in fact, the main ingredient common to brightly colored sunrises and sunsets ~ The Colours of Sunset
