Moonlit Wailea Coast

Enjoyed sunset with the wife a couple nights ago and decided to hang around until the stars came out. Never checked the moonrise schedule, but it worked out just right! This was shot about 45min past sunset. The bright white is from the full moon rising up from behind Haleakala (volcano), lighting the clouds. I would've shot this a little higher off the ground, but I had no tripod, only rocks. lol
Mahalo for viewing!
Nicely captured. I like how the higher clouds top right reflect the fading sun.
Another great capture. You do a great job of balancing the light.
Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity!
Thank you! That light on the clouds is actually all coming from the moon, which is to the left of the scene. The sunset was to the right of the scene. Hadn't planned on any full moon photo activities, was just pleasantly surprised by it's appearance and my timing for that evening.
Mahalo Phil! I like to think my professional luxury real estate skills come into play here, understanding the peak of each end of the dynamic range of this particular camera. I've blown out enough lightbulbs in photos by mistake to know where the line is. lol
