Day 175

Some squirrels in February, in the Barrow Backyard Wildlife Sancutary. (1/1000s f/5.6 ISO400 400mm -1/2 stop) (1/45s f/5.6 ISO400 400mm -1/2 stop) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 174

I happened to come along at the end of the running of the Big Mouth Buffalo (it is a fish!), but I did not get as good of photos as last year.  I caught just the end of the spawning. *** *** *** *** *** And that was it! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 173

Rainbow Dam and Falls by Moonlight! No, not really.  I used a variable neutral density filter, and played with the image to look “nightish”. (1sec, f/32, ISO100, 70mm, -1 stop, neural density filter) Here is a more normal daylight photo taken at the same time. (4sec, f/19, ISO100, 170mm) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 172: The Princeville Marketplace

I guess we saved the best place for last…we didn’t hit the Marketplace until our last day on Kauai.  We had a great lunch at the steakhouse, and forgot to use our discount from the Bali Hai Villas were were staying at… All photos are from my iPod. A chicken sandwich: good food with a […]

Day 171

I caught these on my iPod.  Loverly coconuts in the surf. * ** *** ** * ~Curtis in Kauai~ {!-{>

Day 170

My only “successful”panorama of Wainiha Bay.  It is made from six photos, as I recall, and it didn’t line up well when I stitched them together in Elements.  Part of that is because the waves kept changing position (rolling in!) as I took the shots.  Darn waves.  So the horizon isn’t straight, but it is […]

Day 169: Back on the Beach!

Wainiha Beach, near Hanalei. Looking back towards Princeville in the distance, Hanalei is just around the near by point. Rocks on the shore. And the waves washing up on them. … … The Dailylife Wife hard at work, photographing. Looking up! There is that Hong Kong Sunrise again… The Dailylife Venus… …rising from the waves! […]

Day 168: Back to Kauai!

This is the Spouting Horn in Kukui’ula. As the waves roll up to the shore, water is forced into lave tubes and is squirted out with weird noises. It is pretty impressive. There was a bigger one.  It threw water a hundred feet up or so.  A plantation owner dynamited it because it blew salt […]

Day 167

Tripping the light fantastic with a Franklin Gull! (1/6000s f/6.7 ISO500 400mm -1 stop) He was actually flying into the wind, and not really moving.  He just kept running on the water. (1/6000s f/6.7 ISO500 400mm -1 stop)    (1/4000s f/6.7 ISO500 400mm -1 stop) (1/4000s f/6.7 ISO500 400mm)   (1/8000s f/6.7 ISO500 400mm -1 […]

Day 166

Franklin Gulls, down at Giant Springs State Park. Take off! (1/4000s f/8.0 ISO500 400mm -1 stop) (1/4000s f/8.0 ISO500 400mm -1 stop) (1/4000s f/8.0 ISO500 400mm -1 stop) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
