Kohala Sunset.....

Over the last few trips that we have taken to the Big Island i have fallen in love with it more and more. While my favorite island is still and always will be Kauai i have come to have a great appreciation for the Big Island. There is so much to see and do on the Big Island that i have no clue how anyone can be bored there. It has so many climates and different types of beautiful landscapes packed into one place that i just go nuts there going from one place to another. You can be on one side on the island driving through desert and an hour later you will be driving trough beautiful coastline, next massive thick green jungles, or rolling hills that make you feel like youre in the midwest as opposed to hawaii. One of my favorite places on the island is the Kohala area, this may seem a little strange since this is the furthest thing from the tropical paradise that you could possibly see. This part of the island is dry as a bone, lots of dead trees and brown grass fields. The real draw is the huge dramatic clouds that come into the area, with these in the sky it makes for some gorgeous sunset. Its a bunch of elements that by themselves are all that much but here they all come together and at sunset it is breath taking. After a while the images get a little repetitive since the trees are always a part of the compositions, but it is incredibly fun to be there and shoot. So with all that said here some images for you to enjoy.
