Luau in Wialea

Two nights ago, we finished our dinner in town and came back to the Marriott Resort where we are staying now. We heard the music from the Luau and decided to walk down and check it out. We figured that they would fence off the area, but they don't, and anyone can stand in the back and watch the performance. So I grabbed my Canon 100-400 lens and shot some pictures from the back. I got this one really cool shot of the fire dancer being lit only by his torches. Gotta love shooting at ISO 3200 with the Canon 5D Mark II.

So...the next afternoon, I walked down to the Luau area and showed the picture to the coordinators of the show and they freaked out. They told me that they were in desperate need of images for their web site and asked me if I would shoot some more. Long story short...I shot more for them and they treated us to free drinks (a very good thing) and a free Luau the following evening. Hey, that works for us!
