This Group also contains a Collection of SUNSET and Sunrise galleries placed in other groups.
The best sunsets occur during times of cloud but,as you may have noticed,a particular type of cloud makes for better images.The best is mid to high level cloud-this tends to bring out the deep oranges and reds.Very high-level cloud(cirrus) will also provide a colourful background but this tends to produce a more reddy,pink colour.
Low-level cloud tends to result in orange bases but the sunrises aren't normally as spectacular as skies filled with pink or red.
