On our final evening in Stockholm, my Mum and I treated ourselves to some delicious ice cream and had a wander down to the waterfront, where we were treated to a stunning sunset.

We sat at the edge of the water, with our feet dangling above the water, licking ice cream and watching the sunset as the boats continued to come in. As the sky got even more impressive, we tried to eat faster so we could capture some of it.

It was the perfect end to the holiday really as it gave us time to slowly walk back to the hotel and take in the beautiful city one last time.

On the other hand, it made it harder to say goodbye for exactly the same reason.

I love sunset, and I was pretty impressed that I managed to get such decent photos considering that I didn’t have my tripod with me. I’d love to go back with my tripod in tow next time.

I’ve seen a few truly breathtaking sunsets in my time, and the one over Stockholm ranks second on my list. Incidentally, I’ll be posting about the best sunset I’ve ever seen either this week or next week.

Where have you seen breathtaking sunsets?

  • Gorgeous! It looks like a painting! 🙂
    Sunsets have been pretty impressive these past few days in my neck of the woods. I guess this stops today though (rain, rain and more rain).

    • We’ve had some stunning sunsets too recently. I like it when the nights pull in because it’s easier to go out and appreciate a good sunset.

    So pretty! It sounds like the perfect end to such a nice trip.

  • Your shots are absolutely beautiful! Eating ice cream and watching the sun set sounds so good right now. I’m glad you had a fab time!

    • Thanks Rachael 😀 It was a perfect way to spend an evening, wish I had a photo of the ice cream because it was in a pretty impressive cone.

  • Such stunning pictures I bet seeing it in person with your icecreams was incredible.


  • Incredible photos! I don’t think there’s anything better than a sunset (and icecream haha) xxx

  • Oh wow what lovely photos. I watched a beautiful sunset in Porthleven in Cornwall last night.
