Pictures from Hawaii

 

Pictures taken of Kauai and the Big Island, Hawaii over various trips from 2002 through 2013.

 

 

Sunset in Poipu. I used a graduated density filter to prevent the foreground from becoming too dark

 

 

North Shore, Kauai. I used a large format 4x5 camera for this image.

Milky Way over Hanaley Bay

 

 

I barely caught this Humpback whale jumping during a sunset cruise.
I used an 80-400mm lens with image stabilization mostly zoomed near the 400mm range to catch up to his 45 tons leaping.
These Humpback whales swim 3,000 miles from Alaska to spend winters near Hawaii from December through April.

Hiking the Awaawapuhi. After 3.5 miles and a 1500 foot drop, hikers are rewarded with views of valleys below.
The drops are sharp and unforgiving

All good things come to an end. Boarding the return flight out of Kona.
I enjoy walking up the stairs over taking a jetway
