Pretty in Pink – A Collection of My Favorite Sunsets

The theme of #FriFotos on Twitter this week is Pink, in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I lost a very close family member to cancer and I know firsthand how terrible a disease it is. This effort to raise awareness to both cure and prevent cancer is noble and I hope you all will do your part.

When I first heard the theme I drew a blank, until I realized that some of my favorite photos feature amazing hues of pink. Here is my interpretation of the Pink theme through a variety of sunsets.

    The sunset works on each and every FriFotos theme…, it even works for a cure to some things… some great images Matt, love the one of Ayers Rock, I so need to get there.

    stay adventurous, Craig

    I love all of these. I am lucky to be living in a place where we experience stunning sunsets (and sunrises) and one thing I have learned is that it isn’t always the ones which are the blaze of glory in the sky, many times it’s the subtle ones, or the reflection of the sunset on a mountain for instance, which make one draw a deep breath. You’ve captured these so well, yet I bet the penultimate one was even more spectacular in real life? Thanks for sharing them!

      Thanks so much and you’re right, the camera only captures a sliver of what we really experience.
