Thanks Craig, #1 had the advantage of not being shot through the office window

Colourful sunsets are due the the sun shining through the atmosphere at a low angle (taking the long route through) and illuminating dust particles... sounds so clinical and simple......

Thanks square one - so would there be certain conditions that would alert us to expect an impressive sunset on any given day? Those two sunsets I photographed were on two consecutive evenings.

From what I can read, the short answer is no. If you have say bush fires that cause a lot of atmosphere pollution that can create the right conditions....

I don't think I'm allowed to quote or paraphrase a post from another forum, but you can read about it here

Hope this helps.
