Kauai Sunset

seascape photography, kauai photography, landscape photography, hawaii photography

Lumahai Beach just screams Hawaii to me and it was a must do photography location for me. It must scream Hawaii to others as well as it was where a large part of South Pacific was filmed in 1958.

The colour of the water is stunning and its surrounding by beautiful green mountains. Despite its tranquil looks in this photo its actually a very dangerous beach and has been nicknamed Lumadie by the locals. Lumahai Beach is normally exposed to really large surf and swell and has really strong rips swirling around it.

I’m pretty stoked the way this photo has turned out. It was my last day in Kauai and it had been raining all day, I really didn’t think I was going to capture anything at all. In fact I seriously contemplated staying at home as it was raining that hard. Well as per usual Kauai turned it on just in time and this amazing scene unfolded before me. Talk about being rewarded for turning up!

I hope you guys enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed taking it.

    Nice shot & location Jamie buuuut, not too sure about the colour transition in the water.

      Hi Tim,

      Thanks for that mate. The red on the water was actually amazing in real life so I just had to leave it in mate! 🙂 It was like a giant laser beam burning through the water. Never really seen anything like it here.
