These were taken mid December, as others have mentioned doors off helicopter ride is the only way to go for photography. My first time shooting from a helicopter I should have opted for a higher shutter speed and less depth of field. This is one instance where the shake reduction filter in PS seems to work.

The last shot was taken on the ground at the overlook for Waimea Canyon, the only one you can drive to, the rest of the North Coast is apparently very difficult to get to.

All taken with the Sony A7R2 and the 24-70 GM.

Great images...

I took that door off helicopter ride too and loved it. I got almost sea sick towards the end due to all the rolls and pitches, but I was able to get a few good images.

Thank you for the comments. This is really dependent on so many variables such as pilot, weather, time of day. I thought the Kauai flight was so fantastic we opted for flights on the other islands but it rained on one and no lava flow on the other, and the other pilots were not nearly as good.

Nice compositions, John.
You might want to go a bit easy on the post-processing, though. All of them are looking kind of grungy.

Absolutely awesome images. This is paradise found! Congratulations.

I'm not totally sold on the processing. I feel the middle tones could be a little richer and less haloing/sky wash out. How were these developed?

Glad you made it out here. I made the same mistakes on my first heli ride. So I feel you there! Got some great light on the na pali...very cool
