For as much as I am in Poipu at the aFeinberg Gallery down there I have oddly enough not photographed Shipwreck’s Beach much. Admittedly crazy. It’s a sweet little stretch of beach just past the Grand Hyatt with some pretty photogenic rock. In the winter(ish) months, when the sun is far south this rock face holds the light until the very end of sunset. Happening to be down in Poipu this afternoon I left the Gallery and immediately went in to hurry-up mode. Friend and I hurried down to the beach where I was still in my pants and shirt and began to shoot. Next thing I know I’m sacrificing my clothing to the waves as I needed to get close enough to get the shot I was after. As the light changed I was super stoked to see the trees and rock light up as I expected…of course the clouds were the added bonus!
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!
“In To The Sunset”
Just about time to ride off…
Was down at Secrets beach for a small birthday gathering with some friends and as always that place just impresses. As the sun started to set I ran out with my camera trying to capture this awesome place. The lines of the tidal/spring pool were awesome. Kept this one dark and moody
Great way to spend the afternoon for another revolution around the sun! And of course thanks to my friends that I was able to spend it with:)
Up on a ridge in Arches National Park I had spotted a location to photograph a great panorama of sunset over the park. Of course, like any photographer there was a significant amount of waiting. So there I was, perched on this rock with my camera at this great expansive scene. Then I turned around.
