Capturing this image was NOT EASY! We hiked about half the Hanakapiai trail. 4 miles in 4 miles out and a whole lot of uphill and downhill. So steep that I thought I was going to fall a few times. Carrying the camera and tripod did not make it any easier.
Before I go out to take pictures, especially sunrise, I like to google places to go. Lydgate Beach Park came up multiple times as one of the best places to watch the sunrise in Kauai. Although the sunrise itself wasn’t spectacular, I had a great time exploring the area.
