I get so excited about winter arriving because the nice bigger waves bring out more surfers than usual. That’s my favorite sport to photograph for the time being. Why? Because, unlike football, I won’t accidentally be tackled while sitting on the sidelines. The other reason being that it is such a fun challenge to try to compose an image when they are moving so fast. So why aren’t I exhibiting photo’s of surfers in this post???
We went to several beaches on the north side of the island looking for surfers. Found none until we passed by Hale Ewa. By then I had given up because the morning sky was covered in thick clouds and the rain was showing no signs of stopping. As my husband drove us home we saw a little break in the clouds. So we decided to pull over when we found a picnic area. I took hundreds of photos for practice. After a few hours there was enough sunshine to take these 2 photographs. In the second photo I wanted to inject my feelings about the entire morning. So after a bit of work I chose to finish it off with a Nik filter.
