Honl's Beach Sunset, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

    Newer Older

    This was a pretty casual shoot - point camera and wait. Remote shutter release in one hand, beer in other. Repeat as necessary.

    There was a turtle off to the left that distracted me for awhile; I tried to frame it in the foreground but it was in the shadows and moving, so I gave up and put the rock in the frame instead.

    As always, thanks for looking, and more at: stevedunleavy.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Big-Island-Sunsets/1...

    Cheers,
    Steve

      The green rock is a nice foil to the golden sunset.
