First sunset photo of the new year. Here is a sunset in Honolulu Harbor. I love how the setting sun creates a nice gradient into the sky and of course the beautiful reflection in the water.

Here the view overlooking Kawai Nui Marsh. This is the upper part that is within the Kawai Nui Marsh Reserve.  In 2005 the area was designated as a Ramsar Convention Wetland of International Importance.  This is an international treaty for the conservation and sustainable utilization of wetlands. Below is a panoramic shot thought the lighting isn’t as good as I would have liked. I’ll have to go back on a nice and sunny afternoon.
