A Stunning Easter Island Sunset



Easter Island at sunset.

The most iconic images of Easter Island include blue cloudy skies, green grassy fields, and abandoned stone moai statues, however the island is even more stunning and awe inspiring in the evening as the sun sets.

Silhouetted moai statues against a striking backdrop of red, orange and blue, make for a phenomenal photo opportunity – one more unique than your typical tourist snapshots from around the Rapa Nui National Park.
