Ke’e Beach Sunset Kauai

This is Ke’e Beach in Kauai.  Its right at the beginning of the Na Pali coast and its divine.   This beach is as far as you can get to by car on the North Shore of Kauai and it really does feel like you’re at the end of the road.  It’s quite, serene and relaxing with everyone just sitting by the foreshore watching the sun setting and contemplating their lives.

Quite a few times after the sun has set I’ve stayed behind and jumped in the water and just floated in the water, soaking up the zero gravity feeling in such an amazing place.  I’m sure I could go here for the rest of my life and never get sick of it.

Do you have a place like that at all?  One that you can keep returning to and never get bored of it?

Kauai Sunset

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.

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.
