Happy Friday, everyone! It's the end of the week, so I thought I'd leave you with my recent sunset photos.
Haleiwa beach is a great place to watch the sun set over the water. I was worried that it might be a little too cloudy for good photos (sunset's less fun if you can't see the sun), but the clouds ended up being a nice addition.
These photos were taken with my camera's "sunset" scene setting, which seems to accentuate the bold colors of a sunset. I wish I'd taken a few photos without the sunset setting (sounds redundant?) to compare. I don't know exactly what it does to bring out the sunset colors. It seems like it may be cheating to use the setting, like it might be akin to lying about what the sunset actually looks like, but then I've taken photos of sunsets before and they never come out as orange or as pink or as red as I think they looked in real life. I'd say these photos capture a fair picture of the true scene.
First, a photo looking west (I guess it's southwest, more precisely) from Haleiwa before the sunset turned everything orange.
And now, the orange.
A little later.
Here's what that first angle down the coast looked like at this point. Note the paddle boarder to the left, and the light rain coming down in the distance over the water on the right. I love how the orange light catches the rain--and how it doesn't look like it's falling straight (must be blown about by the wind).
A portrait shot a little later
Do these seem a little bit grainy? I think these seem grainier than my other photos, but maybe it's just me. Maybe it's the sunset camera setting? I will definitely remember to try some without that setting next time.
Snorkeling photos on Monday!
