Da Leap

A great place to watch the local surfers is at the Kapahulu Groin at Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikiki. You’ll keep expecting someone to surf right into the wall but they never do.

Flights Leave Every Day

I see it’s been a very rainy and cold spring so far on the Mainland this year.  Especially the East Coast. It isn’t very often the grounds crew at the U.S. Open figure so prominently in water removal!   Just in case you’re getting tired of that weather here’s what it looks like in Waikiki this summer.

Do you visit the beach (or the Shore as we say on the East Coast where I grew up) and focus on one element more than another?. I like to catch a wave as it washes against a rock or rocks. I’m not referring to the kinda waves generated by a storm.
Just the daily wash of waves against the shore. There’s something about catching the splash and spray created by a swell reaching the beach. Digital allows me to indulge my desire to catch that brief moment in time and really observe it. To see how the water spreads out. The tiny droplets separating from the mass hanging momentarily weightless. Before gravity and time pull it back to the sand and water that flowed around the rock.
Sometimes I’ll freeze the action with a fast shutter speed or present a more silky flow of water around the rock with a slow shutter speed.
