    I fricken love sunsets so why not start a thread about it? If you have ever captured any amazing sunsets, please post them here icon_smile.gif!

    Here are a couple of my captures;

    I captured this one off the highway near cottage country.

    Got this one the other day. The light off the sun reflected off the leaves creating a fire effect.

    Woke up early this morning just to spot a sunrise and succeeded!

    On my way home from work, I stopped to take a capture of the sunset only to see a Coyote pass by and scared the crap out of me lol.

    Debbie Downer: Those brilliant sunsets are largely the result of pollutant emissions. Most of these emissions do have natural sources, which is why after volcanic eruptions orange and red sunsets were reported in the pre-industrial era. Krakatoa being the last of these. Now gasoline combustion make these a nightly occurrence across most of the world, particularly near places which high automobile traffic.

    You're not a debbie downer; you're just stating a fact. That would explain why Toronto has such dramatic sunsets...
