Beautful Sunsets at a Great Price - Free!!

Looking for some beautiful photos of sunsets but don't want to pay an arm and a leg to use one for your flyer, newsletter or project? Well never fear - here are some beautiful free images of sunsets that you can use and enjoy - for nothing!!

Being an artist and designer, I am frequently looking for free stock photos that I can use in my artwork or for layouts on my social networking sites like Yuwie and My-Space. Although there are technically alot of sunset photos that you can find on the web, they are not all "technically" free for anyone to use- in fact- you can actually get into trouble for copy and pasting some one else's work into your articles or pages without permission from the owner of the pictures.

Being that the web is such a big place, it's sometimes hard to know what is OK and what is not OK for us to use in our everyday work here at the web.

In this article I have compiled a gallery of "free stock sunset photos" which basically means you are not going to get into any trouble using them. I have selected some favorite sunsets that I use in my work and have posted them here for you to also enjoy- free!

The photographers that have taken these pictures have allowed us to use these images without compensation- so please use and enjoy them!

(To save a sunset picture here- right click with your mouse on the picture you like and select "save picture as"- then save it in the folder you want to keep it in on your computer - I usually save mine under "My Pictures" in "My Document" folder)

Sunset Photography Resources

Great Link For More Royalty Free Photos

For more royalty free photos you can visit this link at and find categories for animals, natures, insects and many other things. It's a very helpful resource when you need photo's and you don't want to search around for "free" photos to use!

And don't forget, you can always try your own hand at making your own beautiful sunset pictures by using your own digital camera- I have also done this with great success. Just make sure you back up your work! I lost some of my best sunset photos because I didn't have back-up copies and my hard drive crashed.

    Autumn) YW! When searching you do have to do some sleuthing. It seems all the sites that want royalties pop up there when you search for "free photos". I'll see if I can dig up some of the links I've used. I've had a couple computer crashes and lost alot of my research sites. Thanks for stopping by to read!

    Thanks for the insformation and sharing with us that magical moment, sunset!

    It is the time of day when we can behold the beauty of the world, in peace, and reflect on the day that has past. I am reminded of the last post being played or sung on the around the flag pole when we were on scout camps and Jamborees. "Day is done,

    Gone the Sun,

    Safely rest,

    All is nigh.

    As the flag is taken down, and folded up for the night.

    Thanks for that flashback.
