Florida Sunsets - Central Florida and Central Gulf Coast

One of the most popular photography subjects is a sunset. Visit any beach on Florida's west coast at sunset and you'll find people holding cameras pointing them towards the setting sun. Sunset photography, however, can and should be more than capturing the sun as it sinks below the horizon. Many of the best sunset photos show much more than just the sun. They evoke a mood or show a special moment that just happens to coincide with the sunset.

While the photos below are by no means the best in sunset photos, they are some of my favorites. I've taken these over the past 3 years throughout central Florida and Florida's central Gulf coast.

Sit back and enjoy and please feel to leave me a comment or suggestions. Thank you!

Beautiful, beautiful sunsets! I especially love the masts of the boats silhouetted against the sky in the Dunedin Marina shot and the reflection of the sunset on the wet sand in the Clearwater Beach picture. I know you said that you took the photographs, but you might want to put your name in as the source in each photo.

I see this is has a contest tag - doesn't it need to be in the Photo Galleries category? Good luck on the contest!

Fav sunset pictures are always more than the sun setting and these not only capture a mood, but show great sense of composition. I particularly like the Clearwater Beach pier.

Stephanie, thank you for the wonderful comments! And for pointing out the photo galleries category. For some reason I couldn't find that yesterday!

Desertlab and Maryellen, thank you! Thank you! I'm so pleased you enjoyed the photos.

Vasantha, Thank you as well. I'm sorry the Clearwater Beach one didn't open for you.
