As an internet marketer who helps my clients get higher search engine rankings, I manage to attract some pretty cool clients. One of them is the daughter of Academy Award Winning art director Tambi Larsen (see this earlier post for his art). She rents their former home on Kauai as a Hawaii beach house vacation rental.
Obviously, I'd prefer to go to Kauai, stay in the house, and take awesome pictures of the island myself. But these are trying times for us, so, I kept bugging Pamela to do it, and now she has! And, wow... seriously... Here's the gallery of her pictures of Kauai. Amazing.
While it's probably hard to take bad shots of a place like Kauai, I'm sure it's done all the time. Crappy camera, people too lazy to get out of the car, greasy fingerprints on the lens... All kinds of things can go wrong when you're trying to take pictures of some of the most beautiful scenery you've ever seen.
And then there are the times when you get it right. Pamela has probably taken hundreds of pictures of the ironwood tree that is in the yard, right next to the beach, just steps from the house. But it wasn't until she walked out there with her new camera, in just the right light, and took this picture that it all came together in a kind of perfection that, well... just look.
