Sometimes seemingly random items catch my eye. When I noticed this open coconut laying on the ground something drew me to it. Maybe it was the contrast of textures and colors? The rough, fibers of the husk surround the smooth interior of the coconut shell and the rich brown shell encases the milky white remains of the nut.
A wooden figure stands, watching the bay at Pu`uhanua O Honaunau National Historic Park, Kona, Hawaii.
For this shot I used neutral density filters to get an exposure of 10 seconds at f/29.
The view of this lava rock at the mouth of a stream and the two large outcroppings in the distance reminds me of a young child playing near the shore watching their older siblings swim out beyond their reach.
These fiddleheads remind me of an animal embryo. I suppose in a way they aren’t that different; newly forming leaves that aren’t fully developed yet.
This seemed like an appropriate post for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify.
Sunrise on the river is one of my favorite ways to start the day. When the water is calm it’s hard to image a more peaceful place. Approaching the river fills me with a sense of wonder and a profound appreciation of what lies ahead. Soon I’ll be out there among the herons and geese.
Despite the rough surf and rocks of Panalu’u Bay, Hawaii the beach is frequented by Green Sea Turtles. These two were taking a well deserved rest on the black sand after braving the conditions to make it to the beach.
This is my submission for the Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O.
The Golden Gate Bridge partially conceals itself as fog lifts from the San Francisco Bay.
Another image of waves breaking against the Kona shore just before sunset. This one feels more serene than Kona Coast, Sunset, I but the two photos were taken within minutes of each other along the same stretch of the coast. The key difference being the length of the exposure. For this photo I used a 2.5 second exposure while the other was only 0.3 seconds.
