"Above the Napali Coast" Kauai, Hawaii
"Above the Napali Coast" Kauai, Hawaii I am reworking this image to bring out the fantastic light on the cliffs of the Napali Coast since a collector is placing an order. I just love the beautiful green wrinkly cliffs, lush blue water with touches of Kauai red dirt in there. This image goes perfectly with this image - "Late Afternoon along the Na Pali Coast" Napali Coast, Kauai. Kauai is a special place as my wife and I had our honeymoon there. Ever since we were there, I knew I wanted to go back and bring part of Kauai for my walls here in California. On a follow-up trip to Kauai, I charted a little R22- 2 person helicopter for a private flight to get this image. It was so small my son wanted to know where the rest of the helicopter was! (it is really tight in there and I bumped the control stick a few times while being preoccupied with shooting!) It took about 5 reschedules of the helicopter trip to find the right weather conditions while I was in Kauai - that was the image that I had visualized in my head that I wanted. It was either rainy or cloudy along the coast as weather is really unpredictable in Kauai! I finally pulled the trigger. 2 hours of flying back and forth to get the right lighting conditions and it was right! I had two collectors with houses in Kauai who pre-purchased images from the Napali coast before I ever set out! This looks fantastic large on canvas but even better on Metal or my HD Acrylic mounted images. This was captured a BorrowLenses.com Nikon D3S and Nikon 28-70 f/2.8 lens. This is shot at 1/800 second and f/4.5. Kaua’i, Kauai, borrowlenses and Na Pali Coast. You can see a large version of the image here: http://bit.ly/2b8XW2Z
