A slow sunset is captured from the Kalalau lookout at Koke‘e State Park on the island of Kaua‘i. The lookout, at an elevation of approximately 4,000 feet, offers dramatic views of the rugged Northwest coast of Kaua‘i and is a great place for birdwatching as well. Students in the Photography and Film elective class were recently here to shoot photographs and film their short film, Kaua‘i Turnaround. This image was also used for the film’s poster.
