A warm sunset is a perfect backdrop to end an evening on the campus of Sam Houston State University. Students captured gorgeous mixtures of orange, pink and yellow in a variety of landscapes. We gathered a collection of visually pleasing sunsets that remind us that Texas skies are an art form of their own.
Huntsville, TX | There are not many large skyscrapers overpowering the view in Huntsville, so finding an open field to admire the colorful setting is easy. This photographer did not let this parking garage get in the way of a photogenic moment.

Even with the homes in the distance, this beautiful sunset still moves as the focal point.

This photograph perfectly captures the sun setting behind the landscape of trees surrounding campus and a bright crimson gracing the horizon.

The contrast between the cool and tranquil tones of the water and the warm tone of the sky creates a beautiful blend worthy of a thousand photos.

This dorm is the coolest looking building in town, so I caught the deep orange and yellow horizon near. It was a dream come true. Photo courtesy of Contributing Reporter Bastian Gunderson
