Photographer's Note

This was one of many breathtaking moments during my recent visit to Hawaii. From this POV of the Kalalau Valley (Kauai, Hawaii, USA), it appears as if the Pacific ocean has blended together with the clear blue sky. This perfect gradient of blue seems to have hidden the horizon!


Detailed Description:

This glorious lookout provides you with a panoramic view of the Kalalau Valley, the largest valley on Na Pali. This point and the less frequented Pu'u o Kila Lookout provides the greatest views of the Pacific. The Kalalau Valley was inhabited until 1919.

The Kalalau Trail, an 11-mile hike down steep seacliffs, through waterfalls and to the ocean, is one of the most popular in the world. Views from the lookout change minute to minute depending on the ever-present clouds. If the clouds are coming from inland, they usually disappear quickly. However, if there is a cloud bank moving in from the ocean, it usually lasts indefinitely.
