Okay to start off with our sunset watching spree, I want to share two of my best sunset shots of 2016.

It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream - Bern Williams #Quote #Sunset #Travel Click To Tweet

This one was taken while sipping sundowners in Zululand game reserve in South Africa. Imagine holding a glass of red wine in one hand, standing in lion territory and watching the sky go on fire – I think there is no better way to enjoy a sunset – is there? Oh and by the way, this picture is “not edited” at all.

Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn - Ralph Waldo Emerson #Travel and #Sunset #Quotes Click To Tweet

And the 2nd awesome sunset shot of 2016 for me was this epic sinking sun in Komodo Island. We were taking a dip in the pool at Jayakarta suites and realized its sunset chasing time. As we rushed to the beach, I could see the sun setting in the far horizon – almost gone, but spectacular, nevertheless.
