Living on the east side of an island doesn't typically lend itself to being able to take nice sunset shots, especially when there are two 14,000-foot volcanoes in the way and the trade winds pile up low-level clouds against those mountains. Occasionally, though, we do get some spectacular sunsets.
This evening was one example although I can't remember the last one! I almost missed it as well. I just happened to look out of the window at around sunset and saw the most spectacular sky. So, no tripod or filters, just some snapshots in an attempt to capture the amazing colours from my lanai and garden.
According to the observers I spoke to at the summit of Mauna Kea the sunset from up there was amazing. I wish I'd been there to see it although I've seen my fair share of sunsets and sunrises from the mountain over the years! Well, I'm up there again tomorrow but not on the night shift this time, I have some work to do during the day. I'll take the camera but am not sure if I'll have time to take any photos. We'll see though, but it's time to hit the sack as it's an early start tomorrow morning.
No time to pick the best shots so a quick collection of the ones that look good to me so far:
