I hope you all don't mind that I have posted another sunset photo. This was another photo of the sunset during vog Saturday with the haze in the horizon as the orangish sun is setting above the blue Pacific Ocean. My friend and I had returned from a hike and relaxed at the beach on this beautiful evening. Shortly after this photo was taken, the sun disappeared into the vog and so you could not see the complete ending of the setting sun..
The heavy vog that blanketed O'ahu these past couple of days caused the sun's colors to be reddish orange creating this beautiful colored sunset. The vog is caused by the volcanic smoke on the Big Island that moves its way to O'ahu and lingers in the atmosphere when the trade winds drop.
I was doing a run along the coast about a month ago when I came across these birds and immediate thought of Abraham Lincoln - not the President, but his relative of the same name from Brookville. I'm not sure what type of birds these are but they have the best life! They can fly where ever they want without having to worry about rising fuel cost and airfare prices. Prices for round trip plane tickets to the mainland U.S. have risen several hundred dollars in the last several weeks since Aloha Airlines shut down passenger flight operations.
I've gotten back on the training track this year, paddling on the water seven times a week, running, biking, weight training, hiking, kayaking, breathing, sleeping and eating in between, and forgetting to blog! Hence my absence from posting so thank you for your patience as I try to balance it all. I have been taking photos, just haven't gotten to downloading them to the computer.
This photo was taken about a month ago at Mt. Olomana's third peak - Ahiki.
