This is one of my favorite photographs of Kauai. Yes it was taken with an iPhone but sometimes those opportunity shots with lights in the dark work out really well with an iPhone.
Consumer fireworks are still permitted in Hawaii but you need a permit except for the small novelty items. Aerial luminaries (floating lit lanterns) were banned in July 2012 because of fire hazards. This is no doubt necessary but a bit sad as they were so pretty!.
Finally settled in at the Poipu New Years Eve Beach Party, this photograph is from a scene we saw during the walk in.
