Kona Coast, Sunset, III

Photograph by Doug Couvillion: Kona Coast at sunset (3 of 4)

The slow shutter of this exposure gave the rhythmic Pacific waves a soft, foggy feel.  This picture was taken along with Kona Coast, Sunset, I and Kona Coast, Sunset, II.

For this shot I used neutral density filters to get an exposure of 10 seconds at f/29.

Kona Coast, Sunset, II

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.

Just Above The Waves

I love watching pelicans glide effortlessly over the ocean.  They hang in the air, sometimes just inches off the water, bobbing up and down with the passing waves.


Grackle In The Surf

This Grackle seems to have learned a few things from the Sanderlings on North Carolina’s Outer Banks.  It waited for the waves to bring tiny mollusks and crustaceans into the shore and then tried to catch them before they dug into the sand.  I captured this image just as the Grackle realized the wave was a little too big.
