Hanalei Bay Moving Light

Hanalei Bay – Kauai


This is my third image to post of beautiful Hanalei Bay. This shot was taken from the east side of Hanalei Pier, to include more of the rugged Na Pali Coast cliffs. I wanted to capture the long exposure effects this scene so often allows for, including the streaking clouds after a fast passing storm, and the reflected light enhanced in the moving tide.


If photographing beach and island scenes is your thing, then I cannot recommend this area enough. Kauai features amazing and diverse scenery, but just the area between Princeville and Ke’e Beach can provide countless photographic opportunities and memorable experiences.
