The gentle rain never let up as I sat at Koki Beach waiting for sunrise this morning. After an hour or so, I decided it was time to move on and explore other opportunities. I set my GPS to take me to some of the waterfalls on the road south of Hana and made my […]
What a peaceful way to start the day. This morning was entirely the opposite of the day before at Dragon’s Teeth (read more here). There weren’t any rain showers around. Just a few clouds along the horizon to catch some of the early morning light.
It is about time that I post something new! I snuck in a trip to Maui before the holidays and have found some time to start processing images. The first sunrise location that I visited was the dramatic Dragon’s Teeth volcanic rock formation on the northwest tip of the island. This image portrays just some […]
One very popular area of Kauai is in the southeast corner of the island around Poipu Beach. The majority of the resorts are strung along the shoreline and there is a steady flow of tourists coming and going throughout the day. A major attraction close by is Poipu Beach Park, a nicely developed area with […]
Kauai has hundreds of waterfalls dotting its tropical landscape. The mountains in the center of the island get more rain than anywhere else in the world and that water has to drop a couple of thousand feet to reach the ocean. The challenge for a photographer is how to get to them. Many are only […]
The sunrise this morning was simply breathtaking. The sun slowly slid above the horizon shining soft orange light across the sky as it climbed behind a bank of clouds. The waves crashed on the shoreline and created small waterfalls as it slid back out to sea. Truly an idyllic scene. It looks so peaceful now, […]
I timed my trip to Kauai right when the ocean swells were at their peak. Not that I did that intentionally. It did make me change my shooting plans, especially along the north coast where the waves could be fierce at times.
I had scoped out many locations to shoot sunrise along the east coast of Kauai. Some required a drive of up to 45 minutes and a hike to reach. It wasn’t until almost the last day of my trip there in December that I thought about checking out the beach right where I was staying.
My flight into Kauai landed shortly after sunset, leaving me no chance to scope out a location for sunrise the next morning. There were a couple of beaches that I had seen shots from close to my hotel, so I figured that was going to be my best option. All you need is a beach […]
There are a lot of waterfalls in Kauai which is understandable since one of the wettest places on Earth is in the middle of the island. Mount Waialeale gets an average of 450 inches of rain every year. All this water naturally flows down the mountainside to the ocean. Many of the falls can only […]
