Hawaiian Landscapes: Na Pali Sunset

Ke’e Beach is the northern most point accessible by road on Kauai’s coastline.  We were there to photograph the sunset on our last night on the island (for this trip).  The sun dipped into the water just off of the silhouetted cliffs of the Na Pali coast and was truly magical.  I have many images to look through, but this one jumped out at me after a quick review.  I was trying to capture the collisions when a large wave would hit off of the cliff face and while returning towards the water would then hit the next incoming wave.  The energy was incredible and this wave is higher than sixty feet in the air given that the lowest cliff ledge in the picture was at least five feet above the water.  I’m looking forward to reliving this great trip when I am reviewing all of the images back home.  For now, this one is a nice finish for my posts from the Garden Island.
