Killer Sunset in Hawaii

sunset

Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Our back garden faces west, so we are well situated to watch sunsets.   But there are sunsets, and then there are killer sunsets.  This one fell into that latter category.

This photo was taken about five years ago.  The sky was thickly overcast.  The cloud cover acted like a giant diffuser for the light from the setting sun, and then reflected the light onto the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

If you visit Hawaii and the weather is cloudy, don't despair.  That means you probably will have the opportunity to see a killer sunset!

Only mother nature can make colors that beautiful - and we are so lucky to have the means to capture it with a camera. So very beautiful!

@ Becky - Now that you mention it, it does look a bit like silk fabric. Thanks!

@ Kathy Thank you. The regret is that we are not able to capture ALL the beautiful sunsets so that we can enjoy them again and again.

@ T and S Thank you very much.
