Rarity
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

A recent shot from my regular stomping grounds, in a spot that is very rarely safe to attempt. The tide and the swell have to be just right, otherwise...well...you'll have a bad time to say the least. Having the sun in a nice position during one of these opportunities is just the cherry on top.

Swish
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

There's always something to find in the nooks and crannies of the Kona Coast, even when the waves are small.

Pounder
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Some decent sized swell was hitting the west side yesterday. Wave meeting rock...still one of my favorite things.

Last Hurrah
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

This sunset had a lot of different looks and stages, but as I went through the photos, this one of the last vivid splash of fading color kept catching my eye. I guess it's true...sometimes less is more. Doesn't sound right though :)

Kikowaena
Mauna Loa, Big Island, Hawaii

The stars spin over Mauna Kea, as seen from around 9000 feet up the slopes of Mauna Loa. I shot this same plant in the rock over a year ago, and have always wanted to find it again and do it better. It took some searching, but I finally made it happen. This is about 40 minutes worth of star trails.

Uprising
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

I usually show these bowls draining, but here's one during the filling phase. The smooth "dome" of water in the center is over the exit point. It was pretty calm seas on this evening, and was one of the only times that I've watched this bowl and though, "I could probably hop in there right now". But I didn't :)

Simplified
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

I usually post seascapes with a little more...scape. But I found myself sort of mesmerized by the colors within the splash of a wave the other night, so I shot it :)

Bottleneck
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

This is (obviously) the same location as my last post, but it's so rare to be able to safely get into a good position here, I couldn't pass up the chance. Gotta accept when the ocean is feeling generous.

Access
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

We've had a pretty good run of retina overloading sunsets this past week. Here's one from a few days ago. The tide was low and the sea was relatively calm, which allowed me to shoot a little nook in the shoreline that I usually can't get close to. When the color exploded, the waves died down even more, so I didn't get the best water action, but...well I'll take this any day :)

All Washed Up
Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

I watched this spot for a while, and I could tell that to get the angle that I wanted, I would have to be right where the larger splashes landed. Being so naturally quick on my feet coughcough, I escaped a good number of drenchings, and only got soaked like eight times...maybe ten :)
