Clouds over Kawaihae Bay

cloudy sky

Sky Watch Friday

Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

This is the view from my back garden, facing south.  I took this photo late yesterday afternoon as heavy clouds collected over Kawaihae Bay.  Here on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii's Big Island the weather is very dry near sea level at this time of year.  We were hoping those clouds would give us some much needed rain, but in the end it just sprinkled a bit before the clouds dissipated.

Seems odd to see the view for the other side of the bay. Pan a few degrees left and you could see our place. Up in Waikoloa it was clear last night, I spent the evening shooting astrophotos from the driveway.

Very dramatic shot. I hope you get the rain you need soon, it certainly looks a bit dry there.

I envy you your views, while sympathising about the lack of rain.
Thank you for sharing your picture and may it rain soon.

Gorgeous - could be an illustration in a Bible Times book. Love how you captured the wind in the palm trees. And the contrast between the color / texture in sky and ground. Lovely post.

Denise said...

Incredible view you have from your back garden and a great, great photograph. Happy SkyWatch Friday.

That is a STUNNING view, especially enlarged. Sorry you did not get rain from it, but the picture it painted for you is worth very much on its own. Excellent SWF post!

Delightfully streamlined tropical seascape with the wind giving the direstion of movement in the picture.

Great photograph! I like this one..

Wren said...

Some how rain in Hawaii seems more interesting than the rain in my backyard, and makes for a better photo, too.

Hey there - I love this shot. It has a desolate yet warm quality to it. How'd you do that - get both feelings in the same shot? Hope you're having a great weekend!
