This month’s wallpaper image comes to you from gorgeous Kauai, Hawaii.  Last month I had the privilege of visiting the islands of Hawaii.  I have to say I’ve sort of been avoiding going to Hawaii because it is one of the more expensive tropical destinations, but it really was fabulous.  Besides the obvious amazing scenery, I found the Hawaiian people friendly and island life relaxed and laid back.  We saw whales, crabs, dolphins and sea turtles.  We ate traditional Hawaiian food, and fresh seafood was amazing.
We took a seven day cruise around the islands with stops in four ports including 2 days on Kauai.  It was my sister in law’s 60th birthday and the whole family went on the cruise together.  As a birthday gift, I did a portrait of her and her husband on this beach as the sun was setting.  As we walked off the beach I noticed the upside down kayaks and the colour of the sky, so I had to stop to create this image.  I hope you enjoy it on your desktop as much as I enjoyed Hawaii and perhaps you’ll add the islands to your list of places to visit.
I’ve already got next month’s image selected, but it’s really hard deciding on these each month.  I’d love to hear from you what kind of image you’d like to see on your desktop.  I have tons of images from the following places, please put a note in the comments below and let me know your preferences.
