Watching the sunset

There were a gazillion sightseers up here this evening to watch the sunset although fortunately there weren't too many in my favourite spot for photographing the twilight sky. I keep hearing things about the number of visitors to Mauna Kea dropping off but whenever I'm here the numbers just seem to be growing.

It was another cloudless sunset. That's fine for us doing astronomy, the weather for that is great at the moment although we could do with a tad more wind as we're getting some local seeing effects. Unfortunately, the cloudless sky meant another boring sunset, at least for me! The visitors didn't seem to think so though...

Nice silhouette! I'd say you got something out of that sunset, too.
