Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, the day can end beautifully.

It’s fitting to celebrate the sun setting on 2017 with a few images of color-drenched sunsets from my travels. The palettes range from bright pastel indigos and corals to dusky ochres and pinks. Here are my favorites:

Monterey Bay, Pacific Ocean:
An early winter sun setting behind Seacliff Beach's iconic Cement Ship in Aptos, California
