Kona Sunset

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 25 February 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The clouds often came over the big island in the afternoon and lingered until after sunset. It never rained, however, even though the clouds looked stormy!

That's what I like with sun and clouds... endless paintings changing every second. A fantastic playground (ground not beeing appropriate)... must invent a new word the : playsky. What do you think about it Barbara ? ;-)
A gorgeous palette of muted colors.
