To start off, Richard and I went up to the North Shore, on Tuesday, because there were reports that large swells may hit the beaches. Unfortunately strong winds left very small and choppy surf. As a result we found lots of parking at Waiamea Bay. Here's a panorama I stitched together of the beach and surf...notice how few people were there.
|Yup, that's all the people. And this was taken about 10am in the morning.|
|On Saturday morning I got up a bit late and had to hurry to get to a sunrise shoot with friends from the "Frame 21" photography group. We shot from the Barbers Point lighthouse located next to the Barbers Point Beach Park.|
|That's James, Kelli, Matsu & Jason setting up and shooting.|
|Can you see the moon?|
|Richard's sister Nancy bought Wes's dog TJ a gift when she was visiting. This was TJ's first opportunity to play with the toy.|
|Unfortunately because of the coral reef so close to shore, TJ's play area was this small sandy tidal pool. Still he had a pretty good time.|
|That evening I met up with my OPMUG photo friends to shoot sunset from atop Tantalus at Pu'u Ulaka'a State Park.|
