After almost 12mths in the planning I was finally able to stop off at Kauai, Hawaii on my annual visit to Houston and its something I’ll never forget. Kauai has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Each day I found myself waking up before sunrise of course and wondering what visual delights would unfold before me that day. I was never disappointed with what I saw at all. The funniest thing about Kauai for me was all the chickens but that is another story for another time. On this particular day I caught up with Kauai photographer Scott Tylor and we managed to get to some awesome out of the way places and also managed to meet the ‘Duke’ some whacked out guy who kept telling us he was the island’s best surfer.
This beach is called Anini Beach and people like Julia Roberts and Slyvester Stallone own homes here and for good reason. Its stunning. Definitely a place I’d love to take the family back to so that the boys can play and splash in the shallows. We were just about to leave Anini Beach when we spotted these really cool patterns in the water, we quickly unpacked our cameras and started shooting them for the next 30mins. Talk about heaps of fun!
What do you guys think of the patterns?
Just a small hint as to where I’ve been for the past couple of weeks. I was luck enough to be able to get to sunny Hawaii for six days and then Houston, Texas. Normally each year I spend a few days on Oahu, but seven months ago I decided to head to Kauai instead in this year and I must admit, I could never go back and stay on Oahu again, unless the surf is huge of course. I stayed out on the North Shore of Kauai and had such an amazing time, drinking beer, listening to reggae and of course shooting as much as possible. I could easily spend the rest of my days there!
This photo was a quick shot that I managed to fire off as we were landing in a helicopter after doing an aerial tour of the Na Pali coastline, which is another story. Stay tuned for more soon now that I’m back!
