Abrupt sunsets

Sunsets in the mountains are different from those over flatter landscapes. Where the sun gradually dips below a distant, indistinct horizon along maritime coastlines, the sharp edges and higher elevations of mountain ranges make sunsets much more abrupt. In these photos, taken in the mountain village of Melchsee-Frutt amongst the Bernese Alps, a distinct line and immediate deep shadow are the characteristics of the last sun of the day.
