Last week we asked readers to share a spectacular sunset they photographed recently and over 100 submissions of vibrant skies flooded in from across New England and beyond. We narrowed it down to 60+ photos from Boston, Cape Cod and the islands, north of Boston, and south of Boston, and will feature our favorites by region over the next few days.
Below, we feature our favorite north of Boston sunsets — from a glowing sky in Rockport to a calming sunset over Lake Massapoag in Tyngsboro, here are the top 22 reader-submitted photos.
