On Location in “Beautiful Kaua’i”
It’s been a good week in Kaua’í for shooting HDSereneScapes segments for our next film, “Beautiful Kaua’i.” I’d been nervous about the weather and worried I could get the project completed after two previous visits earlier this year. Those trips were met with unusually poor weather for the months of May and June.
Marsha and I come to Kaua’i each year for at least two weeks of vacation time. (I asked this lovely woman to marry me here 28 years ago, fortunately she said yes, so it’s sort of our place.) Usually in May, it is always sunny, trade winds, some scattered showers and the occasional day or two of rain. Although the center of the island (Mount Wai‘ale‘ale) is known as being one of the wettest place on earth (over 400 inches a year), I am usually able to shoot dramatic images if I just wait a few minutes for the weather to clear. Well, this year was not to shoot stills, it was to shoot High Definition Video…and the weather was not usual.
