There’s no history behind this post, no story, no hidden significance. I put this up here for the sheer beauty of the shot. This sunset painted the sky over Recife, Brazil on April 28, 2012. The photo is by Gustavo Galvão. It’s absolutely stunning.

Look at the full panorama on to appreciate the full effect. It’s amazing! (BTW, if and when you can ever embed full panoramas from 360cities on another site, I’ll be able to stop saying “look at the full panorama.” It hasn’t happened yet though.

Despite there being no history or story behind the post, it is topical, as the World Cup is now going on in Brazil. It has nothing to do with sunsets, but Robert Horvat has an interesting post on Brazil and the World Cup here.
