Apple just kicked off their new World Gallery campaign.

The World Gallery campaign spans across 70 cities in 24 countries. This geographical scale makes it the largest mobile photography gallery ever assembled. iPhone photographers will be posted on various Apple channels, including but not limited to, outdoor billboards, print publications, Apple.com and/or the App Store.

It was exciting to be chosen for World Gallery! I can’t believe my photo is on a billboard! Apple Article

The story behind this Kauai picture ~

Lumahai Beach is a popular and picturesque beach. This long stretch of white sand beach was made famous by Hollywood when Mitzi Gaynor spent her time on this beach washing that man right out of her hair, in the movie South Pacific. The beach is easy to reach by following a short trail down to the beach.

I normally do not go to this beach for sunset pictures. The surf was rockin’ earlier in the day so I thought it might be a good place for a change at sunset. I like to take lots of pictures at sunset because you never know what each sunset has in store. I started taking panoramic pictures with the iPhone as the sun set. This is a difficult time for any camera because of the difference between light and dark. We all know what happens when a subject is backlit~ everything else in the picture is very dark. I really am impressed on the ease and clarity that the new iPhone has taking panoramic pictures adjusting for the light in very difficult lighting conditions. I am very honored that Apple chose one of my Kauai pictures because Kauai is a very special place for Steph and I.

More Good News For Kauai- Worlds Most Amazing Waterfalls


Hanakapi’ai Falls (Hawaii)

Located on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, Hanakapi’ai Falls can be found deep in Hanakapi’ai Valley. Seeing the falls will take some effort. You first need to hike two miles on the Kalalau Trail before trekking another two miles inland. The hike is strenuous, and is eight miles round trip, but your efforts will be rewarded with a view of one of Hawaii’s most beautiful falls.

Hawaii Top 5 Waterfalls-Wailua Falls

15 Dec

Wailua Falls #4
Wailua Falls

Where: Lihue, Kauai
Height: 80 ft.
Waterway: Wailua River
Access: Turn off Highway 56 onto Maalo Road. Wailua Falls is at the end of Maalo Road.

You can literally drive right up to Wailua Falls—or at least the top of the waterfall. A nearby lookout offers a terrific view of the 80-foot plunge waterfall, which fans of the 1970’s series Fantasy Island might recognize from the opening credits. The waterfall is especially impressive when heavy rains fill the Wailua River, sending voluminous fast-moving water over the entire span of the fall’s lip. Century’s ago, native Hawaiian men would leap from the edge of the falls into the pool below to prove their manhood. We wouldn’t recommend that activity, or hiking the slippery makeshift trail to the bottom of the waterfall, where the above picture was taken.

Kauai in the movies again!
Finally some good waterfall news. Tonight I was watching the movie Just Go With It with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. Much of the movie is set in Hawaii. At the 1 hour mark the actors want to go swimming in a waterfall. Can you recognize the Kauai Waterfall? It is definitely one of my favorites…Kilauea Waterfalls.
