Simply 16 soothing pictures of London at sunset (taken during lockdown)

Pour yourself a red wine and have a scroll

One thing thats been interesting about this period of stillness is that it has given many usually super-busy Londoners the chance to reflect on the nice things about the city around them: its architecture, nature and pretty skies. This means that, while sunset snaps might once have been seen as a bit cheesy, now they feel really special to look at.

The changing sky is one of the few remaining consistent and good things left in this dark, weird time. And the reds and yellows that arrive in the evening look pretty awesome when they’re the backdrop for the London skyline. We asked Londoners to share pictures of the best sunsets theyve seen in lockdown – from their window or a socially distant walk – and below you can see the ultra-soothing results. Pour yourself a large glass of red wine and have a scroll.

Why not take a look at Londoners pictures of blossom too?
