Sunset in Poipu. I used a graduated density filter to prevent the foreground from becoming too dark. (d)

Sunrise in Poipu, Kauai. (d)

I barely caught this Humpback whale jumping during a sunset cruise.
I used an 80-400mm lens with image stabilization mostly zoomed near the 400mm range to catch up to his 45 tons leaping.
These Humpback whales swim 3,000 miles from Alaska to spend winters near Hawaii from December through April.(d)

Hiking the Awaawapuhi. After 3.5 miles and a 1500 foot drop, hikers are rewarded with views of valleys below.
The drops are sharp and unforgiving. (d)

 

 

 

Just before catching a night flight home, closing our week with dinner at Tidepools. (d)

 

 

All good things come to an end. Boarding the return flight out of Kona.
I enjoy walking up the stairs over taking a jetway. (d)
