Big Island Sunset, originally uploaded by Andy Beal Photography.


I tried to think of some catchy title for this shot, but nothing I came up with did it justice.

So, I’ll just let this stunning sunset from the grounds of the Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii, speak for itself.

The sky was pretty much that color, but faded towards the top of the frame, so I added a colored gradient filter effect in Aperture to keep it more uniform. 🙂
