Sunsets and Color Palettes Inspiration

Photographers often turn to sunsets to capture some spectacular and vibrant color palettes painted across Mother Nature’s canvas. The sky turns so many different shades as the sun sinks behind the horizon, that you find many saying that sunset is a time of inspiration. As designers, we can turn to these amazing photos not only to inspire but to capture some of those color palettes for our own work.

That is why we have this post working double duty for our readers. We have collected some wonderful photographs of sunsets and arranged them in a gallery to inspire you. And we have generated color palettes from the photos that we have included in the post so that you can save them and use them later in your future designs.
