For as long as I can remember, there comes a point late in each day when the sun decides to snuggle under the blanket of the horizon.

A sunset can also be breathtaking. Sometimes it's so bright that it's blinding, other times it's shrouded by clouds. Sometimes it comes in the late hours of a summer night, just in time to send you to sleep. Other times (those times referring to a Nordic winter) it comes way too early :( Sometimes, the sun is so kind that even after its gone, it leaves behind the gift of a beautiful pink, cotton candy sky. And sometimes, it's cranky and decides that it's ready for total darkness.
