Watching the Sun Dip into the Pacific Ocean


I’ve never seen the sun dip into the ocean. Tonight, I got to witness it first-hand. While I wanted to watch it happen live, I still decided to grab my camera and take a few shots to document the beauty of it.

050512 Maui Sunset

Canon 60D | 55-200mm lens | 1/200 | f/10 | ISO 100 | Manual Mode

I must note that the only reason I had my camera on-hand to take this photo was because while my wife and I were lounging by the beach under a palm tree, a bird did its business (pooped) on my wife’s head. We had to come back to the room so she could take care of it, which allowed me to grab my camera and take the shot from our room’s balcony. That bird better watch out, because pooping on my wife’s head is not acceptable!!
