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?

Its no secret that I love Hawaii and travel there often.  Its a magical place and if you’re willing to open your eyes and just let yourself go you’ll see so many photographic opportunities each and everyday.   I was fortunate enough to have my amazing wife Melissa on this trip with me.   We’d just share an amazing moment together off to the left of this photo and had started to head home when we saw this serene and beautiful scene if front of us.

I just love Hawaii, not only is it so picturesque but its also so peaceful and good for the soul.

Evening Glow

Evening Glow::

I was in Kauai and had just finished shooting the sunset at the Na Pali coastline. The breeze was blowing softly with a slight misty rain falling upon my face. It was a beautiful feeling and it was my second last night in Hawaii. I just didn’t think things could get any better.

After walking around the corner back to Ke’e Beach the sky lit up again with this stunning afterglow. Simply incredible!

Its good to be alive and experience these things.

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.

Hawaiian Playground

Hi Everyone,

The colours at this beach in Hawaii totally captivated me.  I just loved the greens and blues and it screamed Hawaii to me.    This beach was a couple of beaches back from Ke’e Beach so it wasn’t as popular but it was a much better beach.  Let’s face it, if you couldn’t see the Na Pali Coast from Ke’e I don’t think it would be as popular as it is.

Two kids were drying to dig a channel from the river to the ocean and after about 45mins of digging they actually managed to achieve it.  They did get managed to get thumped by a couple of large waves in the process though!   I’ll definitely have to take the family back there again soon.
