I'd been driving around all day, shooting all over the island of Oahu... I hadn't been that happy with my shots during the day. And just as the sun was setting I happened across this location. I got really excited when I saw the rocks stretching out in front of me and the clouds forming over head. I took this sot with a big grin on my face, and then I kept walking out onto the rocks further and further into the water, shooting for 20 minutes more. Turns out this one, the first one, was the best. And I almost lost a perfectly good flip flop in the process. Fortunately it came floating back to me. :-)

It sounds like you had a wonderful day +Tom Anderson . The flip-flop reference makes me glad you didn't step on a pop-top on the way to Margarita ville.
 
sangat bagus dengan kesan 3 dimensi puas melihatnya denga efek kreatif yang tinggi...good

+Tom Anderson drive fast, take chances…

A good flip flop is no comparison to a great photo ;)

Are you heading out to the Google+ Photographer's Conference on May 22nd / 23rd?
 
Flip flops are called thongs out here in Aus, this can sometimes cause some embarrassing situations
 
wow this is really a wonderful place, wish to see it one day
 
I see a beer can on top of the rock

So beautiful.
 
Well, That's nice pict.
It's from Hawaii right?
 
Great picture with nice sense of depth and perspective. Be careful when you get close to water, you tend to drop/lose things ;)
 
Natural to us. . But we can not live without it.
 
Thats a stunner .Well worth the days drive.
 
Very inspiring. I could sit and look at it for hours and let my imagination roam.

Great shot, Tom. It's amazing how often the first shot turns out to be the best. But at least we know we worked the subject and there was not a better opportunity there.

i think it's pretty funny that the nice fandy dandy camera makes the thing you're taking the picture of super cool when in actuality it has a lot of drab to it and really it's just the camera, but cool picture though
 
Flipping Tom Anderson. Wish I'd thought of (and followed through on) MySpace.
 
think about our life........... :))))))))))
 
Look's like you stumbled across my beach in Waimanalo. Good shot from Makapu'u Point.
 
I want to spend at-least one sec there......

North Shore of Oahu is an amazing place, you got too be there in Novemebr PipeLine Sufing...Pic's like this is why they call it Sunset beach:)
 
In most cases, we do not realize how wonderful the world and life, to realize it is only necessary to learn and practice a thing "know hope", and never lose faith. Thank for the picture :-)!
 
ooooOOOOOOooohhhh pretty!!!
 
Gorgeous....but I'm partial to da west side pic, Yokz ;-). Once you pass the tents :-/.

Wise Men Say,. . If a flip flop, . . floats back to you, . .then it is yours forever, . . and if it doesn't, . . . it never was yours, . . . . .ok?
 
This is doing a clever photographers...so artistic

One of the most scenic places in Oahu. Beautifully captured.
 
What does a perfectly good flip-flop look like? Did you get any pictures of it floating in the surf?
 
Interestingly, your eyes see also or you force to see so only a camera? It is unreal! how it is possible to see such landscapes?

How are you ?
thx Tom Anderson.
 
Nice shot!!
Its a good pic of Cockroach Bay. Its amazing how you got a shot with nobody at the beach. Keep up the good work!
 
It's hard not to get a good picture in hawaii, no offense to your skills
 
Another great photo of my favorite piece of the planet.
 
Wow! Looks an amazing location.
 
this is amazing.......... which country ?
 
*Awesome! Love it, keep em coming. *Smiles2u
 
simply extraordinary....wish 2 hv a similar talent
 
Funny how the sun can change your mood like that. Awesome work Tom. We are headed to the Bamboo forests of Hana today, I'll let you know how they are. 
 
Trying to figure out where this is. The sky feels surreal with the light bouncing gently off the rocks and the Ko'olau backdrop. Terrific capture here. Gotta get you .. +Tom Anderson aka malihini on that "flip-flop" comment though. :p Keep up that amazing exploring - "There's no time to waste, then, is there?" - LOA quote.
 
it is just amazing! this space... that sense of freedom... it simply invites to explore! thanks a lot for that experience
 
a speedy sky & beholding water just going on as if in it's own tune truly god is the creator of nature & human a BEAUTIFIER
