Here is sunset from Longmont, Colorado on December 19, 2016. Because sunlight travels a longer distance through the atmosphere at sunset and sunrise, the more strongly scattered blue and green light is diminished to the point of giving the remaining sunlight a red and orange appearance.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
