Sunsets are much too easy, so it's best for photographers to avoid photographing them

Sunsets Are Too Easy
If they want to be taken seriously. Sunsets are such a cliche. But screw that. How can you resist the temptation to run and get the camera before the light fades? The impulse of trying to hold onto the moment just takes over. It's an illusion -- all you hold onto is a picture, not a sunset -- but it's a powerful one. I plead guilty.

Same here I'm always struck by the beauty of a sunset as well as a colorful sunrise and we do find ourselves trying to preserve them.
