Sunset

Last Light of the Day in Hawaii

Last Light of the Day in Hawaii

The sun gives its last light of the day as it sets over the Pacific Ocean, as seen at Ko Olina Lagoons on the island of Oʻahu during our 2023 Hawaiʻi Trip. As I have stated in the past, I took lots of sunset photos during our trip, and I have only shared a portion of them. So here is another entry into the Hawaiʻi sunset photos. You can see from the photo that I was not the only one taking photos of this sunset.
Another Hawaii Sunset at Ko Olina

Another Hawaii Sunset at Ko Olina

The sun sets behind palm trees at Ko Olina Lagoons on the island of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi, as seen during our 2023 Hawaiʻi trip. It is another month, which means another Hawaiʻi sunset photo. Maybe I have not been posting one a month, but it feels like it.1 Maybe it will become a regular thing, or maybe not. I have wondered before about sunsets looking better over water.2 I still believe that they do, even with our interesting sunsets here at home from time to time.
Beach Sunset in Hawaii

The sun sets over the Ko Olina Lagoons near the Disney resort of Aulani on the island of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi during our 2023 Hawaiʻi Trip. When I was compiling photos for the trip report, I purposefully left out some of the sunset photos that I had taken. If you have already read the report, you know that there were lots of sunset photos in the report. But I took lots more photos than I could include in the report, so I thought it would be a good idea to share some of them from time to time, because the photos can definitely stand on their own.
Hawaii Sunset Over the Waves

Hawaii Sunset Over the Waves

The sun sets above the rocks and waves of the Ko Olina lagoons on the first night of our June 2023 Hawaiʻi trip. In the trip report, I shared several sunset photos, but I also intentionally held back several other photos to be able to share later on. One reason was so that I would have more to post throughout the winter. And another reason was that I wanted to spend a little more time working on some of these photos.

Hawaii 2023 Trip Report Part 8 - Diamond Head

The Hawaiʻi trip in June 2023 continues with a hike up Diamond Head and another great sunset. If you have not done so already, you might want to read the previous part. Tuesday, June 20, 2023 As was our custom by this point, we started off the day much like every other day. Up at 7:00 AM, breakfast on the Riedels’ balcony. It had been a good routine. But beyond that, things were starting to change.

The sun sets past the lagoon and ocean near the Disney resort of Aulani on the island of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi, as seen during our June 2023 visit. As you may know from reading the trip report, we went for a walk just about every evening that we were there. Part of that was to work off some of the calories we had eaten (do vacation calories even count?), part of that was to unwind from the day (not that we were stressed, but it is always good to relax at the end of the day), and part of that was to enjoy the beautiful scenery and sunsets.
Sunset and Palm Tree in Hawaii

Sunset and Palm Tree in Hawaii

A palm tree is silhouetted against the sunset sky in the Ko Olina resort area in Hawaiʻi, as seen on one of our evening walks during our Hawaiʻi 2023 trip. Each evening, around the time that the sun was setting, we would go for a walk along the Ko Olina lagoons. We would start at Aulani, walk to the end of the walkway (or until we reached the end of the lighted part if it was dark), and then walk back.
