Nonou Sunrise

For today’s sunrise, I hiked up the Nonou East trail behind my house, on what is commonly known as the Sleeping Giant mountain. I had been hoping for the perfectly clear sky we had yesterday morning, but there were clouds blocking the actual sunrise. Still, there were some nice rays of light on the ocean a few colorful clouds:

The sun hiding behind some thick low clouds on the horizon, only letting out a few rays above the silhouette of the Kapaa coast

I’m not quite sure what the smooth lines are in the ocean, either currents or wakes from fishing boats I assume. You can also see some waves breaking near shore, they were about 4 feet (1.2 m) high today (height of the face, or double the amplitude, as they measure them here).
