  • Gathering Round the Palm Tree

    This time of year, there’s much attention given to a particular kind of tree—the Christmas tree. In Hawaii, there’s another tree around which people have gathered much meaning—the coconut palm tree. Year-round, the lazy, swaying palm tree has come to represent romance and the ease of life attributed to life—vacation—in the tropics.

  • Give Great Gifts that Do Good

    Hokulea in Hanalei, Kauai, Hawaii. Photo by Kim Steutermann RogersA few years ago, I decided to do away with the stress of gift-buying and started a new tradition. Many of you probably already do this. Instead of giving individuals gifts to everyone on my Christmas list, I consolidated all that money and made a sizeable (sizeable to me) donation to a local charity that was important to me.

    Destination: Kauai

    old koloa sugar mill and old trucksWhile tramping around "Sunny Poipu" on Kauai's South Shore with my Big Girl Camera, my iPhone, and fellow photographer Anne, the periodic rain showers that darkened the skies—seemingly out of nowhere and, then, disappeared with equal ease—conspired to keep us moving from one end of Kauai’s South Shore to the other, as we resorted to photographic techniques to make the best of each situation. Because that’s the other thing I like about photographers: They are adept at making lemonade out of lemons. Here’s the day’s itinerary in "getting the shot" this past Sunday. Camera or no, this would make for a nice way to spend a day on Kauai’s South Shore.

  • Improve Your Eyesight. Go on Vacation.

    I drove six miles into town today. I passed a burger stand, general store, post office and a beautiful beach that stretches along the coastline on Kauai’s East Side. And I don’t remember a thing about it. I don’t remember whether I had to brake for someone in front of me to turn left into the parking area above the East Side walking path. Or whether the ocean was glassy or the wind was blowing the tops off the waves at Kealia Beach.
