I stayed at the Sheraton Poipu Beach on Kauai. The hotel has magnificent landscaping with ponds and plantings, and a nearby orchid and succulent garden. These images were made in those gardens and around the hotel. The last three images are of the same flower, with some artistic image editing.
I had the opportunity to be in Kauai while on a job and managed to get out and photogrpah on the weekend of June 13-14. Although I’ve been to Kauai many times over the last 30 years, this is the first time I’d seen large waves on the south shore. There was a large storm off to the north that resulted in many waves coming in from different angles. At some coves it looked like a washing machine as waves came in from different angles, sometimes combining intoa great froth of water.
