Brief Directions

The Russian Fort is located in southwest Kauai, near Waimea, off the Kaumualii Highway in Russian Fort Elizabeth State Park.

Notes

The setting sun was lighting the tree beautifully which, along with the reddish orange of the boulders and soil and the fantastic rain clouds moving through the area (and the ubiquitous Kauai chickens) made for a great shot. Canon EOS 50D, 28-135 IS at 41mm, ISO100, 1/15sec at F/4.0.

Description

The Russian Fort - Fort Elizabeth - is a boulder-built fort built in 1815 by a Russian doctor and agent for the Russian Fur Company in an attempt to gain control of Hawaii for Russia.
