Waterfalls Not Named Waimea

Lots of things in Hawaii have the name Waimea in them.  There are Waimea Falls on Kauai, Waimea Bay on Oahu, Waimea Canyon on Kauai, Waimea this and Waimea that.  I think - I'm not sure - but I think, Waimea may have been a king on one of the islands, so that's why so many things are named Waimea.  However, I really don't know for sure so I could be horribly, horribly wrong.  Anyway, as I mentioned, Kauai has some waterfalls named Waimea, but these ones here are not them. I do have pictures of Waimea Falls and I may post one of them later, but I liked this one better.  That being said, these falls are even prettier and unfortunately I don't know the name of them.  I guess I should've been better about that, but there are so many waterfalls on Kauai that it is hard to keep track.  And the best part is they are all beautiful!  These particular ones were kind of far away from where I stood to get the shot so the photo is not quite as tack-sharp as I would like, but I still like how it turned out for a handheld shot.

This is another single non-hdr shot and I just added some vibrance and saturation in ACR as well as the darken lighten filter from Nik Color Efex 4.
