An aerial shot of waterfalls above Waimea:
Some payoff for the usual rainy day trade-off — hazy air for active waterfalls. Â Shot from a helicopter over Kauai, Hawaii.
Seen on the beach at Ha’ena State Park; Kauai, Hawaii:
I’ll freely admit that I posed my model in this shot — we found it laying in the sand a few feet away from where I took this shot. Â I thought it’d make an interesting composition, so moved it over to this one little footprint-free patch of sand and waited for the sun to peek out through the overcast. Â I love the look of a “castaway” coconut, trying to make a life in its new home. Â I’m still debating whether I shouldn’t have brushed the sand off the coconut husk, though…
Wailua Falls on the island of Kauai, Hawaii:
These waterfalls are easily captured from a roadside stop — but that’s both good and bad. Â Good if time’s short, but bad because you’ve got just one perspective you can take on the subject. Â There areâ€¦ informalâ€¦ trails that lead down toward the level of the pool at the bottom of the falls. Â But so many people have died falling from them, that they’ve been closed off for years. Â Officially, at any rate.
