Kauai Daybreak

Sunrise on Kauai, Hawaii.

I recently returned from a family vacation. Although I mostly took snapshots, I did bring my Gitzo 1-series tripod for the occasional sunrise photo. Here’s the eastern shore of Kauai at sunrise, captured with my Fujifilm X-T1 and 10-24mm f/4 OIS Fujinon lens. The combination of the 18-135mm and 10-24mm lenses made for a great travel kit. Most of the time I shot with the 18-135mm, but in this instance I used the wider zoom to get the great perspective of the sky and ocean. Because I had my tripod, I was able to stop down to f/11 and get a 1/30s exposure, causing the motion blur in the waves. I really like the way the water blurs just enough to give this image a dynamic feeling.
