There is so much beauty in this world if one only looks. Case in point: the sheer celestial glory that is the setting afternoon sun bouncing off a servo as you go inside to buy petrol, a sausage roll and a can of energy drink. This is the kind of thing Romantic poets spun sonnets about.

One enterprising Instagrammer has identified the intrinsic beauty of the servo sunset and documents their power in a criminally underfollowed account called – you guessed it – servo.sunsets. The account was set up almost a year ago but has only recently become really active, showing you Australia’s most beautiful petrol stations bathed in the warm glow of the magic hour.
