Maui Sunset Afterglow in Keanae Peninsula

Keanae Maui Sunset 1

We spent out Independence Day Holiday Weekend at Keanae, Maui. We are fortunate (blessed) to have great friends (our hanai family, our ohana)  who owns a property in Keanae.  I call Keanae Peninsula a mini paradise on earth.

On the afternoon / evening of July fourth, we were hanging out outside, chatting … and then we noticed how beautiful the sky is turning after the Maui Sun set. At first it was just pastel colors of pinkish, orange, yellowish, with a touch of greenish blueish splattered around …

And then it kept on transforming, creating a magnificent painting on the sky. The photos here will speak for itself. These were taken from my iPhone. No filters were used. No photoshop was done.  And yes some are a little blurry and out of focus. But these photos will give you an idea of the color transformation that happened.

At the end of this post, there is a embedded video that you can watch.   I still can’t get over how beautiful it was.   More photos below. Enjoy …

  1. Liza – Lovely pics! Shane and I have never camped here, and now that we have a tent, I want to tap you offline for more details. It has taken me a long time, but I am slowly learning that I’d rather not work seven days a week, especially while living on Maui!

  2. We love that peninsula, too. It is so beautiful. We can never get enough! Photos taken there are amazing. Bob usually wants to get back to Kihei before too late, so I’ve never seen the sunset but we will next visit. Mahalo for these photos

  3. There are so many gorgeous spots all over Hawaii. I’m still floored by some of the sights that I just stumble upon. The other day a friend of mine text me a picture of Waimea Bay on Oahu with a rainbow running directly across. In most places it would be a 1 in million shot…but she says she sees it a couple of times a month. Unreal.

    Love the images in this post. Shared on Twitter!
