Central Kauai from Above (IR)

Kauai, Hawaii, 2 March 2015

This is the second post of infrared images taken from a helicopter over Kauai.  They are of the return journey from the north of Kauai to the airport.  The first few are in the settled area by the coast, then in the wild country around Mount Wai’ale’ale, and progressing through forested areas and farm lands.  I won’t label most of them because I can’t add much to what I have just said.

We are looking at the Princeville Resort from over Hanalei Bay.  The resort buildings near the coast are where I remarked in an earlier post that I could not access a beach mentioned in the guidebook because the resort had simply bought all the land and restricted visitor parking to practically zero.

There’s more detail if you click on this image.  There are two dead trucks (though you can probably only see one), a house and some bee hives.

Kauai From Above

Kauai, Hawaii, 2 March 2015

These images are from a helicopter while flying over Kauai for about an hour.  The doors were removed, potentially much better for photography.  Because there were no doors I was wearing a fairly heavy coat.  The pilot strapped me in but because of the coat I didn’t feel as though I was strapped in.  That made it a touch eerie, feeling as though I was just perched there with nothing holding me on but logically I knew it was not the case and really it didn’t phase me at all.  Fortunately, though, the pilot didn’t attempt any barrel rolls.

This waterfall would be inland from the south coast and not at Waimea Canyon since there appears to be road access (whether private or public).

I presumed this was an observatory.  It took me a while to work out what it is.  It’s a military observatory and tracking station.

Na Pali Coast.  There’s a huge arch here but I was on the wrong side of the helicopter and even though it pirouetted, I missed the opportunity for a more complete shot of the arch.  But at least I did get this.

Wailua Falls.

If you click on the image you can see cars on the public access road, just to the left of the falls.  The best views on the ground are probably from the farmer’s land rather than the public viewpoints (which are not that good).  The farmer is ploughing a field at bottom right.  To the right of the falls is a huge ridge of what looks like sand (fertiliser?).  There are two trucks in front of that and what looks like a cherrypicker.  Further down, an excavator is playing with some sand/ fertiliser.
