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

It seems fitting to celebrate the sun setting on 2017 with a few of my favorite photos of color-drenched ocean sunsets from my travels. The palettes range from bright pastel indigos and corals to dusky ochres and pinks, each as stunning as the last.

1. Cancun, Mexico: Caribbean Sea

2. New Brighton Beach, California: Monterey Bay

3.Ruhl Plage, Nice, France: Mediterranean Sea

4, Galway, Ireland: Galway Bay

Magical Galway Bay, where the colors of the coral and blue streaked sky dance on the water


5.Noordwick, The Netherlands: North Sea

Red sky and indigo sea with a bright white sun low in the horizon

Red sky at night, sailor’s delight, as the saying goes


6. Seacliff Beach, California: Monterey Bay

Midwinter sunsets are the most glorious along the Monterey Bay, and this orange sky is no exception.
