From Where I’d Rather Be

landscape photography, aerial photography, hawaii,

Yes I know it sounds like the Corona ad but its true.  I swear I was Hawaiian in a previous life as I really identify with the islands and the Hawaiian way of life.   I’ve been there four times and I’m planning yet another trip there again.   It was only February that I was there last, but its seems like an eternity.

On my last trip I spent six days in Kauai just shooting away and driving around and listening to heaps of Hawaiian reggae.   Paradise!

This shot is from the North East part of the island, in fact the surf you see below me was Andy Irons local beach and on a good day can have surf up to 30ft in height.  To get this shot I set my camera to TV mode and used a shutter speed of 800th of second.   Oh and of course I was in a helicopter at approx 1500ft.

I hope you guys enjoy it.   Hopefully I’ll be able to bring you more photos from Hawaii next February.

      No way! You’re replying at this time of night? Is it you or Markbot? Yeah the break is called Tunnels. It was Andy Irons local break.

      Hi Andrea, the helicopter pilot reckoned that around the corner where all those cliffs are the waves get even bigger. He reckons on wild winter days he has seen waves up to 60ft in size. Now that would be scary!
