READER PHOTOS: The first sunrise and sunsets of 2017

The sky put on a spectacular array of colours across the central west to both welcome and end the first day of 2017. 

We asked for your sunrise and sunset photos from January 1, and you sure delivered with each photo as spectacular as the last. 

Take a look through the gallery above at the amazing site that could be seen either early on Sunday morning, or late on Sunday evening. 

Did you snap a photo of the sunrise or sunset that doesn’t appear in our gallery? You can email and we will add it in.
