Top 5 Romantic Spots on Kauai ~ The islands are known for their natural beauty, explored on land and by sea. Hanalei Bay is undeniably romantic, by day or night. A glorious morning sunset or sunset stroll here is idyllic. Blue green colors, a walk through a charming old town and a sense of ancient Hawaii easily evoke the spirit of romance...Read more:

The Story

In the summer, the sun rises in the northeast, allowing the mountains to be lit with the first light of the day. In the winter, they are silhouetted and dark. I used a very dark filter to extend the exposure time to a full 60 seconds to show the movement in the clouds and trees and the stillness of the water. This is a great snorkeling beach with lots of turtles and fish in tunnel-like coral formations. It is a great place to spend an entire day under the False Kamani trees to the left. Bring an umbrella for the occasional but sometimes intense rain shower!

Other stuff

My pictures are featured on the front page of California Governor, Jerry Brown's website http://gov.ca.gov

Resources

I wrote a 325 eBook that describes exactly how I went about learning photography starting in 2006. I did not learn the usual way. I have studied the great masters of painting and hope to find that light in the real world.

A great weather mashup map of the world with local temperatures, weather and nice popups. See where it is hot and not! (Must wait for slow commercials first, but worth it!)

Google Earth

Simply the best way to scout out locations that there is. You can see sun angles and pre-visualize light under lots of different conditions. Sometimes you can actually pre-compose your shots! This has saved me many thousands of vertical feet of climbing by avoiding spots with blocked views etc.

Satellite imagery (choose 'National' for a local US region or use your fave website)
