At sunset, the sky erupts into a palette of colours and with that our heart also fills with an unexplainable joy, joy of observing a spectacular sight that makes us understand about the presence of the Almighty who has created this beautiful world.
There are several places across the world, where millions of people flock to capture the sunset, and one such place is the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
