If you have ever traveled to Hawaii, you know that there is no shortage of breathtaking scenery. Each island is vastly different from the others in terms of landscape, and general feel. They all have different precipitation levels, plant life, geology, and terrain, making them all distinct and unique. After this most recent trip however, I decided that Kauai is without a doubt my favorite of the islands.

My goal with this shot was to tell a unique story about the Island of Kauai and its predominant features; most notably, the dramatic and ever-changing weather patterns that make this island the wettest place on Earth.

I drove to this lookout spot at least 15 times during the course of my stay on the island, and every single time I stopped to capture the scene because it looked so radically different every time. On this particular occasion, the early-evening lighting was perfect. I managed to catch a 15-minute break between rainstorms, and the fast-moving clouds created the perfect texture for the sky that ultimately makes this image more interesting than if it was on a clear, blue-sky day.

What I was hoping to capture with this image was a sense of how lush, green, and wild this incredible island paradise is.
