I chose to visit the island of Kauai because it is considered Hawaii’s “Garden Island.”  Mt. Waialeale on Kauai is the 2nd wettest spot on earth, receiving more than 460 inches of rain per year.  There are countless waterfalls.  The first, third, and last photos shown in this series were taken by helicopter.  With the doors taken off, and a cooperative pilot, I was lucky to capture some stunning scenes, including the Sacred Waterfalls cover shot (first photo), and the famous Wall of Tears (last photo).
