This is the first in a series on sunsets - no commentary, just pictures, by no means exhaustive, just snapped and now chosen at random - not only of the great golden orb itself dipping below the horizon or the brilliant palette with which it splashes the sky, but also of the magical golden spotlight it casts over town and country within its focal aim.
The first entry: Pacific Islands.
