Sunsets are such a beautiful time of day and can otherwise be termed golden hour. The atmosphere the light creates is magical, romantic and captivating, so much so that we make a point of going to watch the sun set. Nature never ceases to amaze!
The sun setting behind Mt. Teide highlights its silhouette above the cloud line. The orange light hits the top of the clouds giving off warmth and softness. The contrast between the blue and orange is complimentary as the gradient takes effect.
A orange-reddish hue is cast over Morocco as the sun sets across the water. It represents the elements of fire and water beautifully well in their calmest moments.
The mountain ranges are the perfect backdrop to this image. The isolated chunks of ice melt into the reflection of the cloud as the different tones of blue from the water and sky harmonize together.
