Coming over the Saddle Road from Kona on our way back to Hilo in January, we turned around to see the sun going down.

“ that dilated moment after sunset when the sky holds all the light...” — David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle | © 2014 Sugar + Shake

I’m named after the sunrise and there’s such a sense of what’s-to-come wonder about the first light…but I’ve seen far more sunsets than sunrises (despite the name, I’m really more of a night person) and I think there’s something so much more powerful about the intense hues of a setting sun.

What about you? Sunrise or sunset?
