Mt. Rainier at Sunset

Posted by admin on 30th May 2008

This is a photo that I took during my trip in August 2005 of Mt. Rainier right at Sunset.  The sun was reflecting off the mountain giving it a golden glow that one would normally see on Mt. Fuji in Japan.

Stormy Sunset at the Bali Hai

Posted by admin on 23rd May 2008

These photos are of the Bali Hai, Kauai, Hawaii right at sunset on the night before a major rain storm hit the island.  But the storm clouds gathering made the sun glow as if the sky was on fire.

The Bali Hai on the north shore of Kauai is one of the most beautiful places in the world.  With the long sandy beaches of Hanalei Bay mixed in with the beautiful foilage of The Garden Island as it is known, this is one place that you must visit.  Here are a few photos that I took from Hanalei Bay Resort.

Title : A Sunset to Remember

Location:Tochigi Prefecture, Japan

As we were driving towards Nasu-Shiobara, we came across this series of rice paddies that just happened to reflect the setting sun perfectly.  Obviously we had to stop and shoot a picture or two and this is the result:
