"PALMS"

As I’ve captured sunsets from different locations around the world I’m always amazed how uniquely individual these sunsets differ from each other. Climate and atmospheric conditions play a huge roll in the formation of clouds... and how these clouds capture the colors of a setting sun.

 

A tropical place such as Fiji has thunder storms almost every day during it’s summer months. Gigantic cumulus clouds reach for the sky in an extremely hot, humid environment. Wind and rain keep these clouds shifting in all directions so you have to pick your location wisely and hope the clouds form and capture the setting colors perfectly into your frame.

 

This day I obviously got it right... but always have a little luck involved as well since you never know what dusk will bring. The palm trees, jetty and entrance to the harbor make a perfect composition. The clouds were spectacular this day and I shot a few amazing images before sunset... but once the colors started entering my frame I knew I had a spectacular image. Patience always seems to pay off... and also visiting amazing tropical places like Fiji.
