Low Tide Sunset

It’s useful to go back to previous years pictures and take another pass thru what images you’ve kept.  In the days after I’ve taken pictures, I’ll get rid of the obviously bad ones.  I’ll find the one or two images  I definitely want to post here or elsewhere and move on.  Now I’m going back again and further culling what I don’t want to save for various reasons.  Plus I’ll take a little more time to study what I’ve got left.  Here’s an image I cropped down from the wide angle shot I’d originally made. It makes the setting sun, the back side of Diamond Head and the family walking back to the nearby beach more prominent.  The family adds a sense of proportion and movement and makes for a more compelling picture.

Happy Old Year

Time to sing the old year out and Start Anew! It’s a clean slate to write on or fresh paper to print with an interesting photo. Be well.

Waiting it Out

This week we had a drive by Hurricane, turned Tropical Storm, finally dying out as a Tropical Depression. The only significant weather phenomenon from it was an easterly surf swell not usually seen here. Most of the time it’s a Trade Wind swell not storm generated. Plus, the direction allowed for surfing in spots that rarely get good action.   This shot was taken looking across to Makapuu Lighthouse.  The surfer paused, waiting for a good moment to walk the rest of the way on the rocks and into the surf.

Up and Over

It’s been awhile since I created a sequence image.  I saw the possibility as he was going into the maneuver. It would’ve been a more complete image, if I’d seen it a little sooner.

Peek a Boo

I didn’t realize it had been so long since my last post. The aging PC I use to process my shots had been giving me fits. It hadn’t kept me from image making but processing them became an adventure.  After various efforts to keep it going, I finally decided to replace it by building my own.  The new one is up and running smoothly.  Here’s a shot from today.  A friend of mine was giving a Tandem ride on his paraglider. His passenger is just appearing beneath the wing as they complete an aerial maneuver. In case you’re wondering, they are horizontal.

Flying Paparazzi

Here’s a shot from January. One of the paraglider pilots was getting a flying portrait of another.

Wawamalu Beach

On my way out to Makapuu last week I saw how unusually good the surf was at a nearby beach.  PHOTO OP!  For the next two hours I clicked away and ended up with 1800 images!  Almost every wave was ride able and the surfers and boogie boarders were doing their best to catch them.  This was the first time I had used my a77M II to capture so many surf shots. It did a great job focusing on the constant movement.
