Hookena Beach Sunset
The sun sets over the Pacific ocean near Hookena Beach, Big Island, Hawaii.
The dynamic range of this scene, increased by the extremely dark volcanic rock, required an HDR technique. Separate exposures were used for the sky and the foreground.
Hawaii, aided by the many clouds of the rainy season (winter), regularly delivers very impressive sunsets.
