I used to love seeing the sun coming up over Richmond House. If only Wordsworth had lived on the Wood for a while, he wouldn't have had to rely on the "wondered lonely as a cloud" bollocks.

Not very exotic but genuinely nostalgic for me sitting on the wall in the playground before school, waiting for enough people to arrive to start a game of football and watching the sun rise across Bartley Reser in between the tower blocks of Ley Hill

Country's bordering the Sahara seem to have stunning sun rise and sun sets it must be something to do with the refraction of the sand in the atmosphere

You're right BSL. Atmospheric gas particles predominantly scatter blue light and hence why the sky is blue. At dawn and dusk the sunlight passes through more of the atmosphere because of the low angle, which gives it more chance to bounce of liquid particles (like clouds) and to get scattered by more solid particles (pollution). These other particles have a tendency to scatter other colours of light, giving orange, red and green skies. The Saharan sand/dust adds to the particles and gives more vividly colourful sunsets/sunrises.

Best sunrise - top of South East Asia's biggest mountain, Mount Kinabalu in Malaysian Borneo.
Best sunset - touch and go, either top of Lion's Head (next door to Table Mountain in Cape Town), but probably no.1 vote goes to the Greek island of Santorini, over the sheer cliff drop/volcano crater from the main town (Thira).

Sunrise and Sunset over Uluru (Ayers Rock) Australia.

Viewed from a distance is beautiful - especially sunset when the rock goes through a myriad of changing colours over a period of about 20 minutes and then - snap! - darkness and eerie silence.

Sundial restaurant in Fethiye, Turkey.

Superb views over the town, islands in the distance. They play “Time to say Goodbye” as the sun sets into the sea.

Sounds corny, but it really is an experience.

Falling out of a plane at 14k feet. Sun was setting. Blue skies minimal clouds. It was stunning. The pictures I have are unreal.

Sunset - Flying down the coast of Brazil towards Rio, there was an incredible array of colour from the Amazon, the sun and the sky, seemed like every colour imaginable. My phone had died and I couldn't take a picture.

Gili Islands probably second, although there was some magnificent skies over the back of the mountains towards Iran from Turkmenistan.

Sunrise - can't think of a particularly stand out one.
