After Wailua Falls we went straight to Anahola Beach Park. This was just a dry run for us so that we could figure out how to get there. The "real" shoot was gonna be at sunrise the next morning.
The beach was absolutely beautiful . . . and totally deserted. Me and Les were the only people there. We just couldn't get over that. How can, yah?
The polarizing filter that I used over my lens helped produce the awesome color of the water.
The next day, we set the alarm for 4:10 a.m. Les and I are both early risers and fast get ready-ers. We were out da door before 5 a.m. . . . . a little ahead of schedule. Unfortunately for me, most of my shots that morning were failures. I blame my monopod. I bought it at the last minute because there was no way I could lug my 2-ton tripod with me on the trip, and I knew that I needed something to steady my camera for the slow-shutter speeds required for the kind of pictures that I wanted. But it just didn't work out . . . it wasn't steady enough.
I did get this shot of Leslie that I really like though, so the morning wasn't a total bust. And Les did get some really, really nice photos . . . that's the main thing, anyway.
