There's a sorta funny story behind this photo, but first let me give you a few of the basic details. Whenever possible, when I'm traveling I try to plan around finding a nice photogenic spot for sunset. Nu'uanu Pali State Wayside made the list and as I hope you would agree, it was a good choice. The lookout there has a great view of the windward (northeast) coast of O'ahu. Honestly, Hawaii is so beautiful it's really hard to go wrong at sunset with a little planning.
The magic hour, blue hour, golden hour are all names for that one hour or so time period around sunrise and sunset when the light in the sky produces beautifully hued skies and is really ideal for taking photos. Sometimes this doesn't work out if there's a low cloud ceiling and it's really gray and overcast, but other times, like when I took this photo, it pans out and I get really into taking photos while the light is good.
Back to the story behind the photo. So I made it to the lookout, and eventually kind of settled in to what I deemed the best spot to take photos with a good panoramic view. I'm not sure how long I was in my spot, but I did notice some people coming and going and looking on. Eventually, after much time had passed, I moved out of the way to take some photos from another vantage point when I noticed a group of people quickly move into the spot. Turned out, they were waiting for me for some time so that this guy could make his proposal/marriage to his lady with a beautiful backdrop. Ooops? I'm not a 100% certain, but it seems like it was both a proposal and an actual marriage in just a span of a couple minutes. Rings were involved. After they left, I took some more photos, naturally.
