Kauai, Day 3

Saturday, July 9, 2016
Hanalei, Koloa

This is our last day on Kauai and we still need our Hanalei sunrise.  Our flight is at 4:30 and we have to make the most of our day.  We set a 4:10 alarm again, and this time we left a little bit earlier, about 4:45 because Hanalei is a bit farther than Anahola.  I think it took us about 40 minutes to drive out there.  The beach was pretty empty, only two other photographers were out there and they weren't in our way for the most part.

Sorry, this is gonna be a boring post because I didn't realize that I didn't bust out my camera very much on this you goin get plenty Hanalei Pier pics! haha.

Once again, the sunrise was uneventful.  Geez, how do you know when you'll get a beautiful red sunrise?!?!  I want to know the secret!




This is the pic I posted on Instagram. I think it turned out pretty cool.

On the way back to Lihue we found a scenic lookout spot that Jalna wanted to take a few pics at.  I was too lazy to get out of the car so I took pictures of the chickens instead...

It was back to Tip Top for some pancakes and another power nap.  Koloa was pretty close by (I think it was 8 miles away) so we didn't need to head out too early.  It was a pretty small town, very touristy and I only took pictures of the chickens over there too.  I can't believe how many there are!!

We took our time, ate a quick lunch then headed to the airport.  We had a fun time Kauai!  Hope to see you again!

Your shots of Hanalei Pier are outstanding. You should put them in the website so more people can enjoy.

I love Kauai. Not as laid back as before but still kinda backwards and small town. I told my girlfriend that maybe I want to live there but she said that I no can - I going ruin it. How rude, yeah? I can learn to behave.

Awww thanks Aunty, I was just complaining to Jalna about how my composition sucks and that I never know if i'm doing it right...I used to think Kauai was so boring. I'm not used to just relaxing and enjoying the beauty of it. I don't think you'll ruin it, you'd give Kauai a little spunk!

Les, even though the sunrise was not colorful, your photos of the pier are G-R-E-A-T!!!! I love your smooth-blurry-water effect, especially since . . . I . . . DON'T . . . HAVE . . . ANY! No, I not J. And your chicken shot . . . with the backlight and long shadows . . . very cool!!

Awww thanks Jalna! I still wanna see your "rock" monopod photos :). I swear my phone takes better pics than my canon sometimes. Bah!

Resting the camera on my shoulder is more "rock" than on that monopod. NONE of my Anahola sunrise slow-shutter pictures came out. Maybe Hanalei Pier going have some successful ones since I knew by then that the monopod wasn't working out with long exposure. I neva check those pictures good yet. Still working on Day 1 photos . . . s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g o-u-t . . . the Kauai posts.
