One of my favorite times to paddle is dusk/sunset. Here's a collection of some of my sunset pics from 2010. Not officially a trip report, but from numerous outings around Jericho/UBC/English Bay. Most were taken from a kayak, a few from the beach while launching/landing.

If you have some great sunset pics, I'd love to see them.

Nice variety, Watermark. This one is not from 2010, but still one of my faves.

First major beach with a decent campground (imo) south of Tofino... just a bit north of Chesterman.

Another picture from the Broken Group Islands. This was in September 2010, during a rare break in the rain.

Darn. :x If only we were posting photos from previous years I'd have a ton of sunset shots from the Brokens. Oh well, nice of you guys to all post them -- it brings back a lot of great memories. The Brokens are one of my favourite places.

This is fun! VanIslePaddler, your shot shows something my son and I always look for: a greenish tinge to the sky, between the blue and the first hint of yellow-orange.

Here's another one, more fiery in temperament: Isaac Lake, Bowron Route, August 2010.

I'd edit the subject line, but not sure how. I want to see the best sunset pics, whenever they were taken!

Done. It's now just "Best Sunset Pics". Perhaps we should still say where and when each photo was taken?

Here's one of my personal favourite photos -- taken from Ross Islets in the Deer Group, August 2007:

westcoastwilli is the number one sunset picture guy. He must be busy with some winter projects in upper Alps now, otherwise he'd respond as well.
