Generally, in the evening times, this sunshine will reach to the earth in an inclined manner. So, it has to travel for large distance than other situations. In this process, all colors in the light spectrum ( VIBGYOR ) (V-Violet, I-Indigo, B-Blue, G-Green, Y-Yellow, O-Orange, and R-Red) will split due dust particles in the air except the red color.

This is due to because the red color has the more wavelength than the other colors, Because that the red color left and its wavelength is more so that the sun will appear in red color at peak timings, evenings and as well as early  mornings.
