In the island of Kauai you get sun and rain at the same time. Waimea canyon known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" has the most interesting geology and the most colorful features that seem to come alive under the white bellowing puffs of the clouds. When photographing Waimea Canyon, I learned that patience is of utmost requirement on this subject.
The canyon comes alive when you get the sun to shine obliquely on the canyon illuminating its colors, textures and patterns. I therefore stood at the lookout early in the morning as the rain slowly made its way through and patches of sunlight were starting to dance in the gorge. I wanted to use a zoom lens to get an upclose perspective and isolate the Waipoo falls.
