Ke’e Beach

This is a shot of the sunset at Ke’e Beach on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii. The water was so incredibly smooth here, and the reflections made me feel as though I was standing in the sky. I used a reflected cloud as a “foreground object”, and framed my image so that everything pointed towards the sun. I wanted an extremely simple image, so I restricted my composition to avoid the other people on the beach. I used a GND filter to reduce the brightness of the sky and the water in the distance.

    Wow!!! Great reflections… Just wondering how the ocean waters (wavy ones) would give you such crisp reflections??? Awesome shot!!!

      Thanks, Vinod. In this area at low tide, the water was still and calm. The waves did not reach us, but there was still a thin layer of water covering the smooth sand underneath.
