Sunrise - Poipu, Hawaii
Hello from Poipu on the south shore of Kauai, Hawaii.
Just arrived here for work a few hours ago. I was supposed to be here last weekend after Thanksgivings. Unfortunately, plans change as they do forcing me to arrive a week later than planned. I hadn’t planned on doing any shooting this morning as I only went to sleep at 2am. Since I was awake at 7 (10am east coast body time) I got up and saw the sunrise and the very dramatic color filling the eastern clouds. Of course, I couldn’t miss it.
If you looked over your balcony in the hotel beach are where I’m seeing you would’ve seen a crazy guy running around barefoot--good thing I had minimalist shoe running experience--from spot to spot. Lava rock is not very barefoot friendly no matter how minimalist shoe experienced you are.
Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my GoPro camera down to the surf when I first went down there--probably because I didn’t believe the possibilities of the morning. You’ll still see the surf crash on the shore, the clouds run by, even people on the far shore doing their morning beach combing.
