It had been years…many, since I had last taken a camera to shoot the Waimea Pier. The chance came up after a camping trip to Polihale on the west side of Kauai. On the way back home it was late enough in the day that we decided to stop by and catch a sunset at the pier. Having a few ideas already in my mind I set to work experimenting with different compositions. Running from standing on the pier to underneath it, trying to work as quickly as possible with the dwindling light. Comical I’m sure to watch. My goal for this session were long exposures so each time I set a shot and clicked I was waiting anywhere from 30-60s. Doesnt make for quick work.
As the sun was dropping I managed to get off this exposure under the pier and was quite happy with the dance of light around the pillars and base. The funny thing is that even making sure my horizon was level, the pier is not straight! Looks like someone needed a protractor when building this one 😉
