Kauai, Hawaii, 2 March 2015

The last post showed images from my ride over Kauai in a helicopter with the doors removed.  So does this one, but this time in infrared.  This is the first half of the journey, from the airport at the south east, along the south coast and inland, over the Waimea Canyon and along the Na Pali Coast.

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.
