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.

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.
