5 Best Sunsets in Arizona

With its wide horizons and desert landscapes, Arizona has the kind of sunsets photographers dream of. Why?

It could be the way the rich gold and brown earth refracts the warm colours of the late afternoon, blurring that line between earth and sky. It could be the sheer scale of Arizona, with its vast horizons stretching in every direction, so the streaks of colour go on and on.

Or how about its diversity of landscapes, which all bring their own unique character? Weathered rock formations in Monument Valley cast dramatic shadows and come to life in the dusk, while the prickly cacti of the Sonoran desert look softer in the glow.

One thing's for sure, wherever you are looking, no two sunsets will ever be the same. Here's our pick of the top five spots to enjoy your perfect Arizona sunset view.
