The setting sun glints off the balconies of the Hilton Hotel on the South Kohala Coast.
Most of the day, this Kohala hillside looks dry and washed out. However, when early morning sunlight illuminates this slope, the gullies and ridges jump out in sharp relief. I’d often noticed this effect, but it wasn’t until recently that I was able to take photos to show it.
Sunset at ʻAnaehoʻomalu Bay. I have no idea what made this splash in front of the setting sun. I don’t think there was anything out there to cause breaking waves. It could have been the wake of a boat, but I didn’t see one going by. One of life’s little mysteries.
I thought I’d usher the old year out with a sunset photo, taken along the North Kohala coast. I’d also like to wish everyone all the best in the coming year.
The sun rises behind Mauna Kea, coloring the sky, and backlighting the telescopes at the summit.
The late afternoon sun sinks towards the horizon, silhouetting a shapely tree.
Kiawe Trees, and the telescopes at the top of Mauna Kea, are silhouetted against the early morning sky.
Early one morning, I stopped to watch the setting full moon and liked how it illuminated this red buoy marking one side of the entrance channel to Kawaihae Harbor.
