A different way to take advantage of sunsets in photography is to use the sun as your strobe-light for silhouette shots.

The one thing to take into consideration is the sun's flare. Adjusting the camera angle can be enough to take care of that reflected spot that can pop up on your image, but to completely eliminate flare, a lens hood is the most helpful as it prevents stray light from hitting the front element of the lens.
