Photographer's Note

Quoted from TE member ALFORD.
Sunset 101: When the sun is high in the sky, it generally appears white because all wavelengths of visible light reach an observer's eyes with almost equal intensity. As the sun sinks toward the horizon, sunlight enters the atmosphere at a much lower angle and consequently sunlight has to travel through a longer distance of atmosphere to reach the eye. The thick layer of air, dust and haze scatters away much of the shorter wavelengths (blue & violet) and the only light which penetrates through the atmosphere are the longer wavelengths of light (yellow, orange and red) which produce colorful sunsets. Red sunsets are often observed from a beach because of the high concentration of salt particles suspended in the air over the oceans.

Where to find the best sunsets? It's easy, the best sunsets are captured on TE! Just browse around and you'll see almost everybody has their own favorite sunset pic.
