It is and thank you for asking Cindy
Beautiful, Cindy! Thanks for sharing,! 😊 ellen
So happy you enjoyed them & cheers to you! დ
perfect! flashes are so cool! Love the clouds as well!
So cool. I don’t look for them. So I was surprised to actually see the flitting bit of green. Thank you Wayne დ
Incredibly beautiful photos, Cindy! Wow. ❤️
Grazie mille John დ
Wonderful photos! Thank’s Cindy.
Have a great day!
Stay safe and well Elvira & thanks very much დ
Thank’s Cindy. You as well.🤍
Awesome and beautiful 👌👌👌
Thank you very much Michael დ
You’re welcome 🙏 My pleasure.
Beautiful sunset and very spectacular photos!
Honored. Thank you very much Dirk დ
The photos are simply divine!! Such splendor of nature!!! Thanks for bringing them to us.
You are so very welcome my friend & I am very happy you enjoyed. Stay safe & well დ
I love photos like this. The pictures are just wonderful. Warm greetings. Wolfgang
Greetings back to you Wolfgang & thank you for such a lovely comment. Take good care დ
Its quite magical watching the sun slip away like that – beautiful images.
Yes. It is a magical experience. Thank you Emma & take good care დ
Well seen, Cindy
Anonymous is me. When we are given the option of clicking on an icon it doesn’t work
Thank you very much Derrick. Sounds like WP to me! I sincerely appreciate your perseverance დ
Yes – WP. It happens with 3 or 4 people I follow – meaning I have to put in all my details and then repeat my password.
I bet I could describe some common denominators of those blogs where this happens. WP gremlins are discerning.
Such an incredibly beautiful collection of sunset photos, Cindy.
Truly touched. Thank you Lynette დ
A great series of shots. Those clouds look so like a crocodile to me, making them extra dramatic.
I love that you are so creative & preceptive and see this Margaret დ
Not creative! He just snapped his jaws at me!
Laughing….. Still perceptive in that you got away. I would most likely have napped through the whole experience!
I love the colouration of the clouds as they are lit up by the setting sun. This is a glorious series of photographs, Cindy.
Thank you very much Anne & take good care my friend დ
Beautiful Cindy, I hope your not suffering too much taking all these lovely photos over there. Especially the crocodile cloud getting ready to eat the sun…but alas, the sun by the last photo was eating him instead 🤣❤️🙏🏽
I wish you wrote the narrative for this post. This is awesome. Thank you Mark. The ending is the best! Of course, the all powerful sun pervails over a mere crocodile. Kipling would be proud დ
Your the awesome dear lady, lovely alive photos so we know we were there too 😀❤️🙏🏽
Truly beautiful. I see a lovely crocodile trying to snatch up the last rays of the setting sun. 😉
I love the creative mind of bloggers! I see this clearly now too დ
Well done, to capture the green flash!! That’s not easy.
Thank you and I am happy you enjoyed! დ
Happy you think so & thank you! დ
Vivid Texture. Love this colour mix. Formation of a dragon head nearing the sunset minute.
Sky the greatest canvas ever. 🌻
Your descriptor is a poem in itself. You made me smile. Thank you დ
Welcome 🙏. Looking forward for the next set of wonderful images. Happy Sunday.
That’s so beautiful! Thank you for showing, dear Cindy!
Have a fine weekend, and stay safe.
I am very happy you enjoyed Martha. Thank you & cheers to you my friend დ
So glorious 🤗💗
Grazie mille Jo & cheers დ
Oh wow… Stunningly beautiful Cindy.
The larger cloud remind me of a dragons head ☺💖
I am so happy you found this Sue. I missed it entirely, but see it now! დ
Amazing photos, as always. Thanks.
Thank you more for the kind appreciation დ
The green is in the upper-left corner of the last photo? The cloud in the first photo looks just like an alligator to me.
The “Click to enlarge” advice is helpful here. Click and then click again to zoom in. In the last photo, it looks like a sliver of sun peeks over the horizon and is a bright yellowish green. The phenomenon was new to me.
Thank you. I looked again, and I saw it! I’d never heard of the phenomenon either.
I am so happy you were able to see it! It is an amazing phenomenon to see, sometimes it is brighter and bigger, but I like the subtle one’s too დ
So the green flash occurs when the last bit of the setting sunlight reflects off the earth’s atmosphere creating a prism like effect that lasts for about a second or two. In the photo you can see the island of Moloka’i darker and higher in the right hand side of the photo, and the island of Oahu lower and lighter on the left. The tiny green flash can be see above Oahu, directly on top of the land, about half way in the middle of the photo. Tap or click to enlarge the photo and you will see it more clearly. I hope this helps დ
After I saw it, I was amazed that you were able to get a shot of it!
I’m not sure how you were able to catch those shots. You have a great camera eye Cindy.
Very kind of you and most appreciated Darnell დ
Amazing shots! I cant say it enough.
Beautiful, Cindy. The photo does look like the head of a snake or a dragon as someone said.
I missed this but am so happy perceptive bloggers pointed it out to me. Thank you David. Now I see the fire breathing dragon clearly დ
Even without the green flash, these photos are fabulous, but to capture that short moment – so cool.
Thanks much! I was happy დ
Stunning impressions of a stunning sunset!
Merci beaucoup mon Ami Peter დ
Je t’en prie, Cindy.
I’ve caught the green flash once, here in Gearhart, after years of trying.
Yay! Happy for you. It is so hard, as they are gone in a flash დ
Those clouds look like a crocodile with its mouth open! What a spectacular sunset and yes, that cool flash!
I missed the dragon or crocodile until perceptive and creative bloggers like you pointed it out to me. Thank you Dale დ
Sometimes we are so focused on the big picture, we get a nice surprised pointed out to us 😉
I love how we see differently. It makes life interesting.
Absolutely. Just like when we write something and a reader points out this or that (and they never occurred to you!) The joy of art of all sorts.
That is AWESOME!!! I know those are notorious hard to catch, so yay for you! And thank you for sharing that spectacular moment with us! 💚
Aww. Thank you so much Teresa. Gone in a flash! But remembered for a lifetime დ
Gorgeous, Cindy! Can’t beat those Pacific sunsets. <3
Thank you Eliza. Mid-Atlantic sunsets are incredible too. დ
Roused and satiated. What a wonderful end to the day.💕
Hawaii does that for you. My hubby said this afternoon, “You’ve been sleeping for over an hour!”
I replied, “Why on earth did you wake me up?” 😉
Love it 💖
Definitely a sky crocodile, going to eat the sun. Beautiful pictures.
I love your creativity. You rock Gigi დ
Thank you for sharing a flash of heaven with us! 🌅
Love your descriptor & you are most welcome დ
I saw this just before the sun set in British Columbia. Isn’t it wonderful that the sun sheds light and beauty on this earth.
How amazing Rebecca. We all look at the same setting sun, but we see it from different angles დ
Great you saw it and caught it and shared it. I’d love to witness that.
It is green fun to spot as it last only a second or two and happens rarely დ
What a beautiful sunset! The flaming mouth of the dragon in the sky appears to consume the Sun.
What a poetic way to describe this! I see this powerful dragon commanding the sky now that people are seeing it for me. I missed it entirely დ
Great shots, Cindy!
Are you in Oahu now?
Thank you Resa. We are in Maui დ
I see a crocodile or a fire-breathing dragon. Beautiful pictures!
You are the second person who saw this and I missed it. I guess I don’t see everything!!! 😉 😉
I couldn’t see a green flash, so I had to look up what you were talking about. I still can’t see it. Time for new glasses? Nothing green. What am I missing?
My son said the same thing. It is a tiny green flash in the last photo. I can see it clearly, but then I tend to see things!!!! 😉 Green Flashes occur when setting sunslight reflects off the earth’s atmosphere creating a prism დ
The scenes are bright and beautiful.
Much appreciated my friend დ
Great shots of the sunset.
Thank you Marie დ
Merci beaucoup Bridgette დ
Yes. Beautiful sunsets here დ
Stunning shots! To me the clouds seem like the open mouth of an alligator!
I didn’t see that, but now I do! So creative of you დ
Grazie mille დ
Beautiful pictures, I had to ‘steal’ one for my screen saver.
I am so honored! Makes me happy. Enjoy დ
Quite special! A nice reason to go to the seaside and wait for such green light. Thank you for sharing it, Cindy.
Yes indeed. And thank you for your kind appreciation Francis დ
Wow so very beautiful !!!
Thank you! I am happy you enjoyed. Cheers to you დ
Beautiful images and sunset. Aloha Cindy! 😍
Mahalo Brad! დ
We sure don’t get sunsets like these — gorgeous photos, Cindy!
We don’t either. There is something about mid-ocean! Thank you Debbie & take good care დ
Love that word! Thank you Kerry დ
Merci beaucoup mon Ami დ
I’ve only seen this once – on a boat trip in the Galapagos.
That must have been amazing! დ
So, you made it …
I could have told you about a couple of old haunts. We’ll talk about that later, LOL 🙂
hmmmmmm…… My interest is piqued. We’ve been here a bunch but are having a wonderful time. Today I swam with 8 green sea turtles, big old guys which was awesome, and I am going doors off in a heli over Moloka’i for photography by myself (no one wants to go with me, go figure!) and the cardinals are walking in our lanai door daily, so I’m good. I see from your posts that you all are busy with the competitions. Enjoy & stay safe დ
Hey, enjoy your chopper ride. I’ve done that a few times. At least you won’t be carrying a rucksack of gear. You’ll see things you otherwise won’t see if you were on the ground. Stay safe.
I loved every second of it! I want to do more.
But when you fly low and fast, maybe 25-35 ft off the deck, now that’s a rush.
We did fly low. It was soooo much fun!!! But no one was shooting at us.
Grazie mille Pit დ
Bee-uuu-teee-ful! Swooning. 🥰
Awww…. So appreciated Alison! Thank you & hope all is well with you დ
You got it!! I’ve heard of this, but never seen it!! What a dramatic, glorious sky!!
You make me very happy I posted! Thank you very much It was a wonderful surprise. დ
Fabulous captures of the setting sun!
Happy you think so much & I am happy you enjoyed them დ

Great sequence of photos, Cindy. My wife is a huge fan of sunsets, and she has been known to take a picture or two when faced with a spectacular setting like the one you illustrate here. Beautiful.
Thank you & your kindred spirit wife. I love sunsets too. They are so peaceful დ
Nothing like an ocean sunset, Cindy. Beautiful. Clouds made a great alligator, BTW.
Smiling! Thanks much Curt & cheers to you and Peggy დ
Beautiful colours of sunset 🌇
Thank you. Hawaiian Sunsets rock! დ

Thank you Kay დ
All the pictures are really amazing. I like your images. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you more for your very kind appreciation დ
Burning Sky! Looks dramatic and awesome!
Hawaiian sunsets are stunning. Thank you Alexander დ
The cloud looks like a dinosaur’s head to me 🙂
Love it, and now I see it too! დ
Blew me away…. Wow!!!
Makes me happy Amy. Thank you & cheers დ
Honored. Thank you & cheers to you დ
So happy you enjoyed & thank you! დ
I saw it! How interesting. Is that a phenomenon just there or does it happen other places, too?
It happens other places and can be seen wherever the landscape is flat like over the ocean დ
What a cloud crocodile! This is gorgeous, Cindy.
I need all of you to see this for me! I missed it entirely დ
You did? At least you can see it in your photos.
Full of beautiful orange and red sunset 🌇 … Nice clicks. Is it photoshopped or original ??
Thank you. I don’t use photoshop. დ
Wow! What incredible skies!
How wonderful our nature is…
My day is welcome.e to end like that every day forever😊
I hear you! Works for me too დ
