10 Breathtaking Pictures of the Sunset at Hampi

Like we told you earlier, watching the sunrise or the sunset at Hampi is a beautiful experience. Watching the sun go down between boulders into the river is a fulfilling sight for any traveler. We will let the proofs speak for themselves.

1. This picture captures the moment of a lone monkey at dusk. It epitomizes Hampi in a way very few pictures do. While Hampi is always captured on the lens with a view of the ruins, rocks or the river, very few pictures focus on this species which treat Hampi as home. So, this one is for the Rhesus macaque!

2. This picture gets the huge sun going right into the Gopuram of the Virupaksha Temple. While the sun and the sky are clearly visible in a myriad of colours, the temple gradually fades into a silhouette.

6. Lovell D’ Souza gets a beautiful picture of the sun going down into the rocks, with the colours of the sky reflecting in the Tungabadra river. The fact that the contours of the sun can appear so well defined makes the picture more exciting.

7. This lone tree on the Anjaneya Hill is a favourite for many photographers. This picture does it enough justice, by allowing the sun to draw its outline and by drawing attention to its size with a person next to it.

However, do remember that while the pictures might be brilliant, the real deal and the naked eye is better than any lens! When are you going to watch the sunset at Hampi?
