A Pacific view

Light from the setting sun reflects off the Pacific ocean thousands of feet below while crepuscular rays bathe the distant Kohala coastline. The silhouette of the Subaru Observatory sits in the foreground.

Wow! Great pic! Love the light, the colors, the silhouette.

I think this is a very special picture. Mystical; transcendent.

Keera, Beep,

Definitely one of my favourite photos. It was taken about 25 minutes before sunset which is a hard time to take pictures looking directly towards the sun, which this was. The dark vignetting on the top right is actually my hand trying to block the sun!

I only took this because we went up earlier than normal and was bored waiting for sunset!
