Greetings, everyone! In my two years with Gadling, this is my very first photo of the day. It’s a beautiful Friday here in Washington, and I’ve got summer vacation on the brain. This photo by Flickr user Buck Forrester shows the evening waves on Kalalau Beach in Kauai, Hawaii. I love the color and perspective of this image, which makes it look as if the beach is really retreating towards the waves. The granularity of the sand is also fascinating, as are the colors of the water and sunset – gold, green and white.
It makes me want to pull up a lawn chair with a good book – or a camera. Forrester notes that the view back towards the Na Pali cliffs and waterfall is “beyond stunning.”
