Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
I live on the northwestern coast of Hawaii's Big Island, and my house is on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. From our garden, we have a clear view of sunsets and weather phenomena over the ocean, and these are among my favorite photography subjects. This wide-angle photo was taken from my hill a few days ago, in the late afternoon. It shows a small ship heading for Kawaihae, a port just a few miles down the coast from where I live. Overhead the sky had been covered for hours with a constantly changing array of clouds ahead of a weather system that was about to move in. I'm happy to report that this time we did get some rain, although not nearly as much as we need.
