Group Description

Sunsets and sunrises around the world. Get yours at

A few words about this special group
The concept here is very simple: share with us your Best Sunsets and Sunrises from all around the world.
Post your photos and link them to one of the corresponding thread bellow. If ever you could not find your country in the list then don't hesitate to start your own thread. I will then take care of adding it to the list here under.

We are a free of rules group also just please respect the theme.

Now please, enjoy our massive stock of warm and pleasant sunsets and sunrises, have a look at all the destinations we offer, discover new places and let the others enjoy your art and inspiration.

Cheers and welcome to the new joiners.

Thanks to the brilliant idea of Christine Lebrasseur your photos can be referenced into one of our thematic thread. See the impressive list of countries and themes bellow. Please participate, this really makes this group so much more interesting.

How to post your photo in one of our thread?
You want to add one of your great sunset or sunrise photo to one of our thread. Good :)
First of all check out our list of countries or themes above and see if you find the right spot for your pic. If you think your country is not represented, check twice by doing a search with the name of the country you could not find. If you still cannot find the right spot then it's your chance to create a new thread.

Now here is the process to add your pic in your post:
1. Go to the photo in your photo stream
2. Click the 'All Sizes' button located on the toolbar just above the pic
3. Select the 'small' button link from the download page
4. Scroll down, copy the code and paste this into your new comment box .
5. Click preview to check the right pic appears with the right size.
6. Enjoy and let us enjoy your pics :)

There is no limit, no restrictions, you can post as many pics as you want in a post. Just remember to post your best shots.

Your photo might have been removed from this pool with or without notice
Even though we claim being a “free of rules” group we still try to keep a certain quality level here. Also I or one of the moderators might perform some clean-up from time to time. In this process, your photo might have been removed. Maybe was it for one of those reasons:
- your shot contained non natural looking colors like a green sky or a blue sun or HDR that we considered non natural,
- your sunset contained too much dead parts like more then half of the picture is completely black,
- you posted several identical photos at the same time, remember we want your BEST shots only,
- we did not see any sunset or sunrise, a vague reflection of orange light is not what we expect here,
- your photo was too badly framed or had a very bad quality, contained spots, was blurried, etc.
- your sunset was badly exposed: too dark or too white,
- you made a nice photo of the sun but we would like a sun rising or a sun setting,
- you made a photo of your dog, not a sunset photo,
- you made a nice portrait, not a sunset photo,
- we simply considered that your sunset or sunrise didn’t had the quality the other shot have.

** be kind enough to not re-post the removed photos **

Now if you really don't understand why your photo has been removed feel free to send me a message you'll see I am an open minded guy.
