Default Circles and Triangles: The setting sun

Took this a few days ago. Took many shots of the the setting sun with the triangular windsails. This was the best. The windsurfers were about 100 yards offshore.
Taken with a Sony DSLR A700 and Sigma APO 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 DG OS HSM , 1/500s f/5.6 at 330.0mm iso800.



There were also some kitesurfers:

Ordo,
Thanks,
Paul,
These were taken at about half a mile from where we ate dinner at the Gyotaku Japanese restaurant. The bay is called Maunalua Bay and is frequently used for water activities. When there's a surplus of Volcanic dust and pollution in the air the sunsets are pretty colorful.
Aloha

I knew that those placid waters couldn't have been from the North Shore as I had seen the surf at Waimea in your shots posted on the Sports Forum (really great shots, by the way). I was unlucky on sunsets last summer although I caught a couple of magnificent sunrises, particularly one from Kualoa Regional Park. Considering the way school has been this year, I'm already thinking about the island breezes for summer.

Hawaiian sunsets are always spectacular. I captured several of them on both Hawaiian cruises I've been on.

Sunset is about the only time you can point the camera directly at the sun without worrying about frying your sensor and meter not to mention your eyeballs!
