Kauai Sunrise

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 17 January 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

One of the wonderful advantages of the island of Kauai is the high probability of fantastic light at sunrise and sunset. This is an image from our 2011 Kauai Workshop looking East at sunrise.

I love "Nature's Partition" here, as the sun's beam is portioned by that cloud resulting in a seam (I mean that in a GOOD way) coming right down the left center of the frame directly in towards us. I Love that resulting contrast! The colours are superb and the reflection of the sunlight off the bubbles(?) on the raised portion of the beach (just behind the center rock) is a masterpiece of timing!...Just superb! I wish you all the best, Scott ;-) Thank you for this beautiful piece...

Beautiful morning sky that looks like it's on fire, along with the wave action that you've captured. I love the texture in the clouds.
