This was taken when my wife and I were visiting Kauai in February of 2006.
The Waimea Canyon is sometimes referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
Many folks don't get this far up the canyon even though it is easily accessible via car and a very short stroll.
We had gotten up early to view the sunrise from the Kalalau Lookout.
After having the sunrise to ourselves we drove back down the canyon road, taking photos along the way. This was our first stop, and as it was still early morning gave some great light and a bit of mist.

OM-4t Tokina 24-40 ATX f/2.8 Kodak Elite Chrome. Slide Scanned with Minolta Dimage Dual Scan III scanner.
Exposure data not recorded, but I would guess f/11 or f/16. I did basic retouching & adjustments and cropped to 8.5x11 in Elements 5.0, otherwise no computer manipulation.
Photo was taken about 8am or so.
