West Winds

I entered the video realm last year when I upgraded to the Sony a77 M II.  It’s fun but Damn! Why can’t this stuff render instantaneously? Stills are sooo much easier. For the first time I’m posting a short clip to my blog! The other day a front came thru from the west bringing strong winds.  West winds make Maunalua Bay a primo windsurfing spot for a day.  Maybe two.  A good opportunity to get video of the activity.

Canoe Practice at Sunset

It’s the time of year when the changing season brings the setting sun in view at Maunalua Bay. Enjoy.

Slice and Dice

I’ve been using the panorama option with my new a77 M2, and getting good results. Recently, I went out to get sunset shots along the coast of my neighborhood. I got this image. Do you see the interesting effect I unknowingly created? ;-0

Kona Clouds

For the past month we’ve had light trades and hot days.  Today it was just hot. Today the trades died and for awhile this morning it went Kona.  That meant the clouds you see are moving left to right angled towards me. The normal trade wind flow would angle them away from me. The trades will be coming back next week.  For this weekend it’s fans and air conditioners. Enjoy the last weekend of summer!

Overdevelopment

This isn’t a complaint about construction.   In this case it refers to what happens when trades are light and the land in central Oahu heats up during the day.  Clouds build up and heavy downpours can occur.  Hang gliders and paragilders avoid these conditions. Updrafts under these clouds can ruin their day.

Panorama not perfect

I thought I’d post the panorama I created from some photos I took at sunset yesterday.  I liked the quality of the light and how it highlighted the tops of the ridges sloping down to the water. This was hand held and each shot was in portrait.  Trouble was I rushed one of my shots and it was slightly out of focus. Looking at the final product up close it stood out like a sore thumb!  So don’t rush.

Too Fast

Hoping to get my first sunset of the new year,I was at the bay today.  Instead I got some water sport action. Tourists enjoy getting towed around the bay on rubber rafts. Half the fun is whipping it around in such a tight turn the riders can’t stay on.
