Autumn Sunsets on the West Coast

Love Autumn for all sorts of reasons but one of the main reasons is the magnificent sunsets.

Every night is different – depending on the cloud build up. The colours change as the night goes on, like watching our own light show.

A recent night out in Greymouth gave us the opportunity for a sunset over the Grey River and township.

Quite the spectacle.  Thank you autumn sunsets.

    Thanks for sharing! It is soo beautiful 🙂 I work in Fox Glacier right now and yesterday on the drive from Franz Josef to Fox Glacier I had one of the best sunsets – sky and mountains on fire. Sometimes it doesn’t have to be the sea as a scenery. I love this piece of land. So happy, that I decided to stay a bit 😉

      Glad you are enjoying your time here. I think sunsets on the West Coast no matter which part are awesome – something special about over the sea but just as magical over the mountains.
