So this one has been in the archives since 2013. And it’s been a process to get right, and honestly is still not there. This is a very complicated 180 degree view from the rocks at Ke’e Beach showing our place in the Milky Way. As we sit, flying through the universe on the outside edge of the galaxy, this image gives me, maybe too much, sense of perspective. Looking out over the ocean as if space was just over there at the edge of the horizon. Venus along for the ride.
“The Space Between” (unreleased)
Twilight turns to darkness at the end of the road. The Na Pali Coast reflects in to a still Ke’e Beach lagoon as the stars and Milky Way make their presence known. Magical.
Had a chance to shoot at Ke’e one last time in which this VERY temporary beach existed. In the 6+ years of living on Kauai I have never seen that much sand at the end of the summer at this spot. But perhaps I just hadn’t looked before. Either way this captivated me and spent a number of sunsets here. This being the most recent. As the sky was clear, again, my mind turns to twilight and that wonderful transition of light. The last bit of sunset fades away and gives way to the stars. Our visiting friend Venus (I think) made for quite a show as well!
Untitled Ke’e Beach
Low tide, pre-dawn twilight, earth shadow near the horizon and perfectly ribbed sand. Ke’e Beach, one of the most popular on Kauai if not the state of Hawaii, has a rare empty moment before the day brings sun bathers and hikers to wonder in the amazing Na Pali coast.
