I have picked out several sunsets I have taken traveling here and there as a metaphor for the end of 2008. This was taken in Puerto Rico. I don't think I ever saw a sunset this color before.
These next two were taken in Kauai, Hawaii outside our Sheraton Hotel room.
This was taken at the southern end of Lake Malawi near Mangochi, Malawi.
When in Bali, Indonesia, sunsets and be viewed at Jimbaron Beach while dining on the sand. These two photos were taken on different trips.
Some of the most dramatic sunsets I found on Lombak Island, Indonesia at the Oberi Hotel near the small village of Tanjung. The first one below is looking at the island of Bali. The infinity pool at the Oberi gave this shot an added dimension.
I think this is my favorite although I really like the one above. This was taken at Senggigi Beach on Lombak.
