The World’s Most Unforgettable Sunsets

June 13, 2009

By Dian Hasan | June 12, 2009

Most of us associate sunsets with beaches or water. Watching the sun slowly descend and disappear beyond the horizon while a riot of color bursts and paints the sky with bright hues. We also picture sunsets with anything tropical when white sandy beaches, clear blue water and palm trees, frame the coastline creating the perfect backdrop for a sunset.

But sunsets embellish any setting, and the effect is just as stunning when it’s experienced beyond the waters. Here’s a look at a few famous sights from across the globe. Notice whether you can identify the landscape and silhouettes upon first glance.
