The sky had been clearing all day as a storm front passed to the east. I knew the sunset would be spectacular so I headed to Pu'u Kuili (a volcanic cinder cone) next to Kua Bay. A steep climb, it provides a 360 degree view of the coast and mountains from Kona to Kohala. I thought I'd have a hundred good shots but this one of Hualalai volcano and lavender clouds was the only good one of the bunch. Oh well - "The best laid plans, etc...."
