Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
Usually when I photograph a sunset, I like to balance elements of the land, the ocean, and the sky. On this particular evening, however, the best part of the sunset was aloft in the dense clouds, which were reflecting dazzling orange light as the sun eased below the hazy horizon. I took the photo from my back garden, which has a view to the west over the Pacific Ocean. The glowing clouds so dominated the view, that it seemed right to let them fill most of the frame of the photo, too.
