SWEEP...11.01.15
Sony A7SII

I've asked myself many times why am I drawn to seascapes? I believe I've finally figured out the answer to this question, it's 2 things that pull me back week after week!

The answer is quite simple, motion, but not only motion...constant motion of the waves. The 2nd thing...quality of light, the golden hour, sunrise. In that short 15 minutes, from the time the sun is just about to break the horizon until it's about 10 degrees past the horizon...that my friends is the most perfect & most beautiful time of the day, when nature reviles her inner beauty to start my day.

Aloha a hui hou my friends!

SUNRISE STREAKS...01.17.15

Once again met up with a whole bunch of "Crazies" on Saturday @ Lanai Lookout! 

I had a vision of this shot of light streaks in the early morning with cars traveling east & west bound over the cliffs of Makapu'u, with an amazing sunrise in the background! Rarely do my "visions" become reality! 

On this early Saturday morning I decided to attempt to shoot what I saw in my head & after I got home I skimmed thru my images on my computer, I realized that I had all the "right" shot to compose this final image...my vision! Wow, felt really good to accomplish what I set out to do!

Hope you enjoy this images as it was to create!

Aloha a hui hou my friends!

DA MOKES, DA COLORS & DA SUNRISE...01.18.15

Sunday sunrise was gem! This is the colors about 10 minutes before sunrise, unbelievable! The colors was so saturated...it was a dropping tide, hardly any wind, with very gentle waves breaking into this small channel. Haven't seen colors like this in a long while. 

Aloha a hui hou my friends!

THE HILTON HAWAIIAN VILLAGE...11.29.14

I've been wanting to get a shot of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Resort, for a long time, I finally got a chance to shoot it this past Saturday morning. I met up with a bunch of "Crazies" @ 5:30am in the parking lot just behind the Hilton lagoon.

The only problem I had was the light drizzle of rain that the wind was blowing directly into my lens. After consistently wiping the lens filter every 5 seconds, I did capture this.

Aloha a hui hou my friends!

TWISTING SURGE...05.03.14

When I arrived at Makapuu Beach on Saturday morning, the 1st thing I noticed was the absence of the thundering crash of the surf punishing the rocky shoreline of Makapuu! 

Revisited the small tide pools & tried to capture the flow of energy of the churning waters.

Aloha & a hui ho my friends!
