From the Air - North Shore, Kauai
My big personal indulgence on our trip was to take a "doors off" helicopter tour of the island. Why doors off? The better to get photos of course!
The day was beautiful, and the vistas even more so. Some areas of the island were in shadows due to the time of day, but many areas were just perfect. Taking photos from the whirlybird was much more difficult that I had anticipated. Between vibrations, buffeting from the rotors & overall movement, I had to work at it to hold still - and hold on to the camera! Still, I'd recommend the experience to anyone!
This is part of the North Shore, just around the corner from the Nepali Coast.
I have several other shots from this particular helicopter ride I will be uploading over the next little bit.
