Earlier this evening, Metro Vancouver residents experienced one of the best sunsets of the year. Scores of people took to social media to share their captures of the pink glow as the sun began to disappear in the early winter horizon.

Light cloud cover gave the skies a pink shade, which added to the alpenglow on the North Shore mountains with the thick dusting of white snow appearing bright pink. It is an optical phenomenon that is much more common deeper into the mountain ranges, where mountains are blanketed by snow over long periods.

Here are some photos of tonight’s stunning sunset skies:
