HAWAIIAN SUNSETS AND SUNRISES
They can take your breath away. As you come up over the lip of the beach, you glimpse your first view. Sometimes it's orange and glowing, sometimes it looks like cotton candy at the fair, or sometimes it's quiet and pastel; like a fine watercolor. Other times it's waiting until after the second sunset and watching the night seep into the air creating the deepest blues you've ever seen. No matter what, our magical Hawaiian sunsets usually put us in a better place within our souls and help us breathe again.

Peace and serenity were nature's theme for this calming ocean picture. There is a huge section of ancient exposed lava flow and reef on the North Shore of Oahu that I had always wanted to head out to for sunset pictures. This area is so interesting because if you really look, you can see fossilized shells trapped in the rock. It's about half mile walk to the the outer edge. The whole area is VERY rugged and craggy, up and down, up and down. The lava is called A`a (ah-ah) in Hawaiian. If one should fall while walking on a`a lava there will be major abrasions involved! With tough soled shoes and a flashlight for the trip back I was ready to go. There had been a big wave swell so I knew small tide pools would be full on the outer edges, creating the most beautiful reflections if there is a bit of color in the sunset. Once I found my spot to shoot this sunset picture it was so serene and peaceful. The surface of the tide pool was glassy smooth, just like a mirror reflecting the dusk sky. The sound of the ocean and the sea birds calling nearby were the only sounds drifting in the air. Magical ocean tide pools at sunset inspire Peaceful Vibrations in the soul.
