I had a very busy spring. The most time-consuming thing I’ve been dealing with is preparing for my husband and I to move to Texas in mid July. The second most time-consuming thing I’ve been dealing with is that my computer finally died. The only thing I could save from it was the hard drive. Thank you Harold at Geek Squad! You guys are totally awesome! Now that all my files are on my new computer I’m in the process of downloading my art and photo programs. Which is taking forever because some of the DVDs have already been packed!
Here are a few of my photos from before my old computer died. I hope you enjoy them!
These first 2 are from the northern beaches of Oahu.
It was late afternoon when I finally found an area that gave me a display of the oceans power that I really wanted to share. The waves crashing into the rock spraying a salty mist into the air and heaving water atop the wall to tumble down the sides. Then watching it join the roaring rushing current at my feet. I was in awe!
I took this photograph at the same beach above but at sunset. I love how the splash and the sunset worked together. After exploring about a mile of beach I found this spot where the waves were fairly consistent in framing the general area that I thought the sun would be setting. I’m pleased with this shot and how the warm colors of the sunset softly lit the cool blue water as it rolled off the rocks.
These next 2 images are from a beach on the West side (Ewa side) of Oahu.
The wind was blowing very hard this day. I’m surprised I didn’t catch my hair blowing into the photographs as it kept getting in my mouth and eyes even though I tied it up in a knot.
The image below is from North Shore.
My husband and I sat out in the rain on the beach waiting for the sun to come up and possibly spot some surfers. Alas the water wasn’t right for surfing. We were treated however to a beautiful sunrise spotlighting the huge 20 foot waves and creating rainbows over the ocean.
This beautiful view is yet another West side (Ewa side) beach.
I love the contrast of the rich colors at this site. I used a polarizer to cut most of the glare on the surface of the water.
My favorite place to think is at Ko’olina.
I recently took this photo when 11 family members decided to meet at Ko’olina Beach Park for a picnic. It’s not crowded and a great area to relax. If gazing at the clouds as you float on the water or read under a tree is not enough there are just enough shops and restaurants to entertain for a day or two. Of course the hotels have all kinds of beach amenities… Sigh, yep my favorite….
