My wife, daughter and I had an opportunity to spend a week in Kauai a couple of weeks ago. I had never been to Hawaii, but I had always wanted to go. If it was not for my extreme fear of flying, I probably would have gone years ago. I was very unfamiliar with the island, but thanks to my friend Don Smith, he gave me some advice as to where to go photograph and how to acclimate myself to the island.
This is Shipwreck Beach, which was about 1/2 mile from where we were staying. I took this image on the last morning we were on the island. I awakened at 6:00 AM local time to get to the beach to hopefully capture a sunrise. I was a bit concerned because of the cloud cover, but I was told by Don that clouds can appear and disappear within a moments notice. I was witness to a beautiful sunrise, the end of a wonderful vacation and the beginning of a very long day where we would finally get home. Kauai is a wonderful place, and I hope to someday return.
