Shades of pink and purple are the feature of a special late-February sunset.

We have so many wonderful sunsets (and sunrises) in Central Oregon, but to most folks, it never gets old, as the variety is quite impressive - the colors, hues, shapes and settings. Thanks for sharing your photos of February's - and the others we've received in recent weeks - and feel free to share yours from the Share tab at KTVZ.COM.
