Polihale Explosion by aFeinPhoto-com Polihale Explosion by aFeinPhoto-com
Having family come to visit can be quite fun. Gives an opportunity to play tour guide and get to places that we sometimes take for granted or maybe just don't go explore as much as we should. On this particular day I had my parents and gr
andmother with me, showing them the western side of Kauai. Making our way up Waimea Canyon the clouds looked pretty crazy and mentioned we might be in for a good sunset that night.

Heading down and then out to the remote, Polihale State Park on the western reaches, the clouds continued to be promising. As the sun set the colors popped a bit but hopes were high...and almost on command the cirrus started to change...orange, red...BOOM! Sky exploded.

There's not too much interest on this end of the beach so used the reflection of the color in the water and went with the simple composition using the lines of the clouds. Ni'ihau can be seen back left off in the distance.

Needless to say I was stoked to share this sunset with my family :)

THANKS!

very nice.
I am also very jealous of your camera :P
The D800 is my favourite for sure, just don't have the money for it.. (yet)..

Unless you consistently print 40x60 and LARGER you dont need it. Trust me.

Well the video quality and the low noise are really speaking to me the most, not the resolution. If the resolution was 13 mp or something I'd still be interested.
Yet again great photo's, I've watched your gallery, go on like that! :)

Oh and one more thing, when you look at the future. There are comming more and more bigger tv's with 4k resolution. If you make movies or timelapses with a camera like this You'll need the resolution a bit more :) anyway that is what I am always looking for.
