As the sun sets

25 May 2016

Romantic, colourful, blinding and beautiful – sunsets are daily miracles that deserve to be photographed.

Earlier this year, MetService ran its Weather Snaps competition, including the Resene Colour Sunsets category – the winner of this category was Sandy Abbott, who captured this surreal moment at Himatangi beach (pictured above) in the height of New Zealand summer.

“The sunset at Himatangi Beach and many West Coast beaches can be completely amazing, depending on weather conditions," says Sandy. "Watching the sun drop below the horizon across the sea is something I never tire of."
