Sunset Clouds

sunset clouds

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.

I'm envious. You have the best views! This one is a beauty. The colors are fantastic and I do like that the color of the horizon is echoed in the clouds.

Hi Yrsa - Thanks. It was a hot day, so I guess it's no surprise that the sunset looked 'hot' as well.
