Strong sun overhead shows shadows from above, below

With the strong sunlight coming from above, the helicopter throws its shadow over a beautiful waterfall below. We enjoyed an amazing ride with Island Helicopters on Kauai, Hawaii.

Dick and I (and our shadows, too) hug after our safe return to the ground, sorry our trip is over.
It was a glorious hour above Hawaii's beautiful "garden island" -- Kauai.

I've never been to Hawaii or been on a helicopter! Wow - what great shot of the waterfal from above!
You 2 look very happy! What a lovely trip that must have been!

A helo, wow! Those falls astride a volcano require some lift to see in their grandeur. The 50th US state is someday a visit - your pics of your visits tell me to go - someday...

Doesn't Kauai have one of the wettest spots in the world? I think it does...
Makes me miss home seeing that...

What a view! And I love the photo of you and Dick. You both look like you had a wonderful time. That's quite an adventure. I've only been in a helicopter once when I was very young and all I can remember of it was how noisy it was. It terrified me! Have a great week Kay!

Once again lovely pictures. You are very brave going up in a helicopter. I always avoid them wherever possible!

Happy week.

You're both so darned brave. I don't think all the money in the world could get me on board a helicopter!

Beautiful scenery.

WILD WATERS

Beneath us wild waters do flow
As tumbling and rumbling they go;
Approaching the ledge,
Then over the edge,
They crash in the basin below.

Looks like it was a great trip (and some nice shadows too!) I also really like your byline - it sums up my life right now with arthritis!
