Deep Blue Sea


Here is a photo from the Kalalau Overlook in Waimea Canyon in Kauai. The weather is often questionable at this location. When we first arrived, the view was hidden by fog and you couldn’t tell that there was an overlook at all. On our second visit the wind was blowing so hard that I could hardly keep my tripod steady. The view was amazing, though, and it was worth the trouble!

This photograph is about managing an extreme dynamic range of light. The coastal waters and distant mountains were lit by bright sunlight, while the foreground was shaded by high clouds. To get this shot, I used high-speed bracketing to minimize the movement of the clouds. I blended the bracketed shots with our iHDR workflow.
