When the clouds break…in Kalalau

A little while I posted about a wedding I was lucky enough to attend and capture in the incredible Kalalau Valley. For 2 of the days we were there the normal trade wind pattern was disrupted and a land/sea breeze regime was in place instead. For those that dont know I actually got my degree in Atmospheric Science (aka Meteorology). Fun fact! With this knowledge I have a better understanding of what to expect when weather patterns change and per the expected forecast we had some clouds/rain start up around early afternoon and the mountains were pretty socked in. With the land/sea breeze regime in place I was expecting the weather to break around sunset…and right on queue as we headed out for the ceremony…blam!

While the wedding party descended to the river I stayed up on top of the rocks quickly capturing as much as I could of this incredible scene. The sun breaking through, the clouds lifting. Just mind blowing stuff. After photographing this I quickly made it back to the group and the story goes on 🙂

Enjoy this amazing scene!
