The sun setting over Tauranga has provided stunning imagery of late.

Many people have been busting out their cameras to grab a shot of the colours being produced in the night sky.

One SunLive reader descrubed the view as a "Carribean Sunset".

Another said it look like the sky was on fire,

Terry Furmage captured the above image of last night's sunset over Carmichael Reseve. The image shows blues and purples disappearing behind a silouette of trees.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
