If you love watching the sun go down in a beautiful location, you may want to consider visiting some of the world’s most glorious spots to watch a sunset, including Lofoten, Norway, pictured above. This amazing sunset took place in Reine during the very few hours of night that occur during the summertime, where it never really goes completely dark. Famous for its scenery, in a country blessed with a bounty of scenery, the island chain features a wall of soaring, granite peaks running down its spine. In the summer, the rock faces of the mountains are brushed with a soft palette of green scrub and lichen; from a distance, the islands appear to be floating above the surface of the sea.

The Taj Mahal, built as a tribute to the emperor’s dead wife, is especially enchanting at sunset, when its glistens on the surface of the reflecting pool. Under the right conditions, a pinkish haze hangs over the gardens and buildings, creating an incredibly romantic scene.

The Quiraing, a strangely shaped landslip on Trotternish Ridge, is a favorite spot among photographers and all types of travelers as one of the most magnificent sights in the world. The light tends to bounce off the crags and crevices, and, as the sun sets, the light show becomes even more captivating.

Sunset on a safari is something that should be experienced at least once in everyone’s lifetime, and the Masai Mara nature reserve in Kenya is one of the most magical places to enjoy it. The sun’s rays begin to cool as it sinks beneath the horizon, immersing the land and wildlife in brilliant orange light.

Pfeiffer Beach is not only home to one of the world’s rare purple sand beaches, it also has a large rock that sits just beyond the crashing waves. The unique rock has a large opening at the bottom where the sun shines through just before it drops behind the horizon.
