I have been trying to shoot some milky way shots while visiting Kauai. Unfortunately the weather on the side of the island where we are staying was not cooperating. I ended up driving to the town of Eleele for clear night skies.
The milky way shot from the Hanapepe Valley Lookout in Kauai.
I started my night at the beach. The milky was shining bright, but the clouds started moving in. I eventually packed up and moved further south to Eleele where the skies were clear.
