SkyWatch Friday

This series of SkyWatch Friday shots was taken in Maui in June. Maui is one of the best places in the world to watch and photograph sunsets. These photos were taken over a period of about 20 minutes and show the changes that take place over a very short period of time during a sunset.

Taken at 6:52 P.M.

Taken at 7:02 P.M.

Taken at 7:10 P.M.

It never ceases to amaze me after sitting in the sky all day, how quickly the sun dips down below the horizon. Nice captures and good to note the times as well.

Breathtaking pictures!

Wow. It's hard to believe that these pictures were taken from the same place within 20 minutes — the color change is so dramatic. But they're all gorgeous!

Happy Sky Watching!

They're all great. There's nothing like a sunset on the water. I'm sure you had wonderful time there.

Dewdrop said...

Wow, you have captured the sunset "process" beautifully. It truly is a dynamic thing!

That first shot though, with the sun and the waves crashing against the rock... I would frame that!

D Herrod said...

Wow! That is a gorgeous sunset.
