The sun is vital to human survival, as it provides light for us to see, as well as for allowing the process of photosynthesis in plants, warmth for the Earth and also causing the Earth’s rotation and revolution about the sun.  One of the most beautiful phenomena is one that we often take for granted, sunsets and sunrises, which can yield some of the most beautiful sights imaginable.

Here are some inspirational sunset photographs.  Enjoy!
