Sunset Colors over Poipu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii

Sunset Colors over Poipu

A picture perfect natural show on the south shore of Kaua'i, the Garden Isle of Hawai'i. This is a short section of the shore between the famous Poipu Beach and Brennecke's Beach filled with lava rocks that get constantly pounded by the crushing waves of the Pacific, especially during winter months It's a favorite section of mine as it always seems alive, always different. This evening it provided a perfect lead in for the palm trees and the sun setting behind them. And as a bonus, nice floating clouds made the sky look even prettier!

Kaua`i is the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands and fourth largest of the archipelago. The first European known to reach Hawaii was James Cook who landed at Waimea Bay and named the archipelago Sandwich Islands after his patron, the Earl of Sandwich. Later, king Kamehameha I named the islands after his home island of Hawaii (the Big Island).
