Color Layers at Sunset

sunset

Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

The sky was layered in colors as the sun set on this particular day.   Aloft it was still blue, with wispy clouds.   Closer to the surface of the ocean was a layer of 'vog' (volcano smog) from Kilauea Volcano, which is erupting at the other end of the island where I live.  The smoke and particles in the vog are not nice to breathe, but they do scatter the light in a way that often gives us spectacular sunsets.
