Even though the sun sets each and every day, it’s a spectacle that’s impossible to take for granted. That’s especially true when you’re watching it from a beautiful vantage point. Though there are many such spots in Virginia, one in particular that comes to mind is Mason Neck State Park. Tucked away in northern Virginia, this natural area is beautiful during any time of day, and especially during sunset.

Sitting near the Belmont Bay, you’ll be entranced as the sky explodes in a series of oranges, reds, and pinks. Though pictures can hardly do justice, the photographs below will provide a taste of what’s in store.
