Planet Green has assembled a list of the 10 best spots to watch the sun drop below the horizon. Here are some of their picks:

Ayers Rock in Northern Territory, Australia

The clouds here reflect the rock's blood-orange hues into the sky.

Academia Bridge in Venice, Italy

Here, you can see the last rays of light on beautiful 15th century architecture.

Pre Rup Temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia

Pre Rup has reflective pools that face west, and when the sun sets, the pools catch the reflection of the brick and laterite buildings.

Mount Heleakala in Maui, Hawaii

Mount Helealaka is a dormant volcano, and it at sunset it is a splash of color in an otherwise barren landscape.

Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles

Here, you can watch the silhouettes of people playing miniature golf, the waves crashing, and the lights from the Ferris wheel.

Unfortunately, I can't post the sunset photos mentioned above here, as that would be a copyright violation. Instead, I am including personal photos I have taken during my winter retreats in Maui and South Florida.
