Sunsets in 2013

Today I want to share some of the most beautiful sunsets I have enjoyed during last 11 months. I like sunsets with a cloudy sky more than clear ones. Illuminated clouds create an impression of a burning sky, which is often breathtaking. Clouds can add more drama to a sunset scene by it's color and shape. Sometimes an awesome sunset happens unexpectedly. The first photo is an example of that, where after an overcast evening the sun came out for the last few minutes, coloring the sky in amazing purple. Sometimes an impressive sunset occurs at unusual locations. While most oft the photos were taken at beaches or on board of cruise ships, I took the last two ones at a supermarket's parking lot.
