5 Shots: Kauai Day Two

Traveling is relative. If you live in the southwest or western part of the United States, it’s logical to vacation on this side of the hemisphere. Heading to Mexico or the Hawaiin Islands is direct and affordable, then say, flying east and traveling to Europe. Like most people, I enjoy taking photographs of wherever I go. I’m sticking to five shots and picking from the hundreds of pictures the best ones from each day. Which one do you like best? 

1. Rooster

I learned in the 1850s a hurricane came to Kauai and destroyed a chicken farm. The result of the chicken scattering is the island has feral chickens and roosters running around like pigeons. There are no predators on the island. Or snakes. I thought the roosters were fun to watch and gave the island a quirky quality to it.

2. Sunrise
3. Valley

We drove up to the north end of the island. Kaui is diverse. On this side of the island, 400 inches of rainfall give Kauai that botanical, paradise reputation. On the Westside, only 15 inches fall a year. I was surprised to see cactus growing and dry hills. The island appeals to naturalists and adventurists. Biking, hiking, surfing, golfing, kayaking, and fishing are enjoyed with enthusiasm. I liked how rural the island felt.

4. Horses
5. Sun is setting

  1. I like them all, but the rooster and the back-story add a nice touch of quirkiness to a lovely scene.
    I would choose the side with less rainfall, naturally. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  2. I love the sunrise picture, reminds me of my trip to Kauai a few years ago. They were expecting a hurricane so I didn’t sleep well the night before, and woke to a sunrise just like the one you enjoyed. Thankfully the storm missed us.

  3. Great post 🙂 I love all of your pictures here 🙂 They are just so beautiful 🙂 You must have had fun taking pictures of the chicken and the horses 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
