Crystalline

 
So way back in 2009 I found myself with some friends hiking inside a fenced off area…as you do on Kauai.  When we got to the edge of this giant cliff the view was spectacular.  Being midday, not generally my favorite time to shoot, I wasnt overly inspired to shoot that much landscape, however from that height looking down on the calm water was pretty impressive!  The way the light and water played made for a crazy color below.  Took a few shots to try and capture the effect and this is what the result was.  Fun!  Now to try it again soon 🙂
 
Thanks!

Kauai Colors

 
Had the chance to hike down to Hanakapi’ai, with my sister (she’s visiting from Boston), a few days ago and as usual am wowed by this place I call home.  Something from a spot I have shot before but the colors were brilliant with the bright midday sun.  Nature’s palette!  Thought I’d share this quick one and enjoy!
 
Aloha!
