Kauai Pictures - Anini Beach
Kauai Pictures - Anini Beach - On Kuhio Hwy just as you pass Kalihiwai Bay is the road to Anini Beach Park. To find it take Kalihiwai road towards the ocean about a half mile after you cross over the Kalihiwai Stream. A quarter mile down this road and youíll see the sign to Anini Beach advising you to veer left.
If you can resist the temptation to stop at all the appealing sites along the way youíll reach Anini Beach Park after another mile and a half. You canít miss this beautiful easily accessible park, with a large grassy area embracing the Pacific Ocean. Amenities include picnic tables, restrooms, showers, and barbeque grills.
It has a protected swimming lagoon due to an extensive off shore reef formation. Itís usually calm when waves are too big or conditions are rough elsewhere. Anini Beach is a popular spot for a snorkel trip when conditions cooperate. If itís a little too windy you might take advantage of a windsurf lesson. On the west end of the Beach Park is the treasured Anini Beach, a more secluded section that is usually deserted.
Bio about Brad Dawber, Photographer of Aniini Beach, Kauai Image:
Brad began his photo career while still in high school in Orange County, Calif. His love of surfing inspired him to capture images along the Southern California coastline. In 1972 he dropped out of Golden West College in Huntington Beach to take on a full time job as "ad guy" and photographer at Surfing Magazine. This was a dream job for a young surfer and a great stepping-stone. In 1974 a change was in the midst and Brad moved to Mammoth Lakes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. He wanted to be a ski bum for "one season". Surrounded by all this beauty made it difficult to leave. He quickly took to ski photography and became a photographer for Powder Magazine. At the same time he was working the ultimate dream job as a heli-ski guide. This gave him the best conditions possible to photograph.
In 2002 Brad and his wife Pamela moved to the north shore of Kauai, one of the most beautiful places on earth! In 2003 they sold both of their galleries in Mammoth & also opened Nani Kauai Gallery in Princeville. the natural beauty of Kauai gives Brad his inspiration to capture the dramatic landscapes. One of Brad's greatest successes & joys is chartering helicopters for his aerial photography.
