Lumahai Beach Sunset

Lumahai Beach is quite simply one of the most stunning beaches in Kauai and it captured my heart and soul on this trip. So its no surprise that I chose to capture the sunset from my last night in Kauai at Lumahai Beach.

Hawaii sunsets last for ages so I managed to get a number of different angles of this sunset from the beach. Surprisingly, this shot was handheld with high ISO as I was just scouting out my sunset position and had left my tripod on the beach.

Needless to say I went home that evening an extremely happy man. Lumahai had played nice once again.

Ke’e Beach

Hi Everyone,

As most of you know, a little while back I was lucky enough to be able to stop off in Hawaii for six days on my way to Texas.   I just love the place so much and I think I could easily live there for the rest of my life.  Its funny because many of the Hawaiians that I talked to just wanted to get off ‘the rock’ and move to the mainland.

I guess the grass really is always greener on the other side!

This is Ke’e Beach in Kauai.   Its at the end of the road that leads out to the Na Pali coast.  If you want to go and see those awesome cliffs in the background you need to walk to them or catch a boat to them in summer.  Its just not possible to get there by boat in winter, I flew in a helicopter to the area and the pilot estimated that some of the waves below us were around 30ft.

Ke’e Beach reminded me of The Basin at Rottnest a little bit because no matter how heavy the seas are, there is always a sheltered swimming spot.  You can see it, its the small patch of green just below the mountain.

Hopefully I’ll get to head back there again soon.   I hope you all had an awesome weekend.
