Sunset at Poipu, on Kauai Island, Hawaii.
Most of the rocks on the island are black lava rocks, others are red/orange, as they are made up of volcanic iron rich dust, I now know why locally they call it "the red dirt" as once it gets on your clothes its almost impossible to wash it off! There is even a local company called Red Dirt shirts, that specialise in t shirts dyed in the stuff!

As always Thanks for Looking.

Wow! What an absolute stunner.
You have excelled yourself by far with this image hon. I know it looked good on the back or your camera at the time. But this has been a brilliant capture. Deserves the highest accolades possible. A wonderful romantic scene with all the atmosphere and feelings.

I give this my user award because of the outstanding composition and colours. Also because this was hand-held which given the amount of available light to capture the waves and detail took so much skill as to be so deserving of an award.
The camera control over exposure handling and no movement on teh shot is brilliant.
Well done and so much more success to you.
