Shadow shots on Kauai, Hawaii's beautiful garden island

Porch railings always cast good shadows. These are on the deck at the Island Helicopters office on Kauai.

My first shot from inside a helicopter: the shadow of slowly-turning blades prior to take-off.

Trees cast shadows on the sand of this beach at the north end of Kauai.

Dick takes a picture of surf, and seaweed-covered rocks, gets his own shadow and tree shadows as well.

Happy New Year! You do make me think we should do another trip to Kauai sometime.

Hawaii looks very inviting!

A very interesting variety of shadows! A summery island sounds quite magical!

The views of paradise are lovely, we can long for these warm views during this winter solstice. The railings and rotor do leave wonderful shadows. The beach and modest surf do compel one to arrange a vacation to this place someday...

Happy New Year!

I want to be there!

Do you HAVE to show these photos?
Don't you know that we are back to the old familiar dirty underpants weather in the UK? Grey and damp.

Happy New Year, Kay

I love how when I'm on a shadow shot tour I can go from snow to sun in seconds. your shadow shots are beautiful. I especially like the last one - the color of the water and foam, the seaweed-covered rocks and the sand, and then your shadow! great shot. happy SSS, and Happy New Year too!

Hey Harriet said...

These make me want to jump on a pland headed for Kauai right now! It looks so lovely and serene! Happy New Year to you Kay!

Such a lot of lovely shots! I like your placement of the first two shots, the almost crass prison bars against the unexpectedly soft and gentle shadow of the helicopter.

Have a wonderful New Year with loads of light and the occasional shadow as well.

Love your shadow shots- especially the last one- the bubbly waves rolling in, the sand, rocks, just beautiful!

Mara said...

Well, the weather certainly looks better than the weather over here: dreary, slushy, mushy.

Fabulous shadow photos.

Ahh...nice warm sunny SSs. How I wouldn't love to be in them!! Happy New Years!!

Paula Scott said...

Are you still there (in Hawaii, I mean)? A bit envious...although I do get there often enough! Did you wave to my island as you flew by it?
Great SSS shots from the land of Aloha!

@ Paula. No, we've been home since Dec. 22nd. I'd love to live in Hawaii, but we have a dog, and a 6-month quarantine would break her heart.
I thought about your island a lot. We found Kauai very quiet and peaceful but my young brother says Molokai is the most laid-back of all. Sounds fabulous. We're hoping to go there sometime with Rob and his wife and children. Would be SUCH fun.

I'm used to beaches, this being a tropical country, but these shots make me want to see and experience Hawaii!
