Morning Rain Approaching Hanalei Bay

Morning Rain over Hanalei Bay

Spent two mornings in Hanalei Bay, hoping to catch a good sunrise. Instead, saw storm clouds and rains.

I waited for the light to break through, but didn’t see the spectacular sunrise light and colors that I was hoping for. I ended up sitting on the pier for a couple of hours, chatting with the fishermen while waiting out the rains. They talked about the variety of cloud colors during sunrises and how they love fishing here during the early morning hours. Even in the rain, this place is incredibly moody. Rain clouds on the horizon, clouds hovering over the green mountain, waterfall streaming down the side of the mountain …. What missing was a hot cup of coffee.
