PhotoHunt: Yellow

This sunset was taken in Kauai last April (ah, seems soooo very long ago) at Barking Sands Beach, a remote and privately held land. We were fortunate to know someone in the Navy and there was an open cabin for the day. We were treated to this wonderful and lifetime memory. Nature in her all her glory.

Barking Sands is a beach on the island of Kauaʻi in the US state of Hawaiʻi. It is the location of Pacific Missile Range Facility, a rocket launch site and also an official Missile Defense Testing Area, both controlled by the United States Navy. It is no longer an actively used site for missile launches although there is a high degree of privacy on that stretch of beach. Why is it that the military owns some of the most beautiful scenery in the Hawaiian Islands and restricts access to the public! (Rhetorical question)

What a gorgeous photo. Had not idea about the military and those Hawaii beaches?

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Hi M, wow! I love sunsets and that is a beautiful one. Lovely choice for this week's theme. I had not heard of that beach. You are very fortunate to know someone in the Navy to be able to experience such an awesome sunset.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
