Hawaiian Sunset

This is a photo I took in Waikiki, Hawaii while on a sunset cruise.  Hawaii is interesting because the highs and lows in temperature for the day and night are very similar within a few degrees each day most of the year.  It was really a “Groundhog Day” out there.  Plus, I don’t think I have seen a quicker sunset in my life.  It was there one minute and shortly afterwards, it was down.  I chose this image today because of the cold weather we have been having so I can always dream and remember.

Please note a couple of sailboats on the horizon in the center image and the plane just over the land on the right hand side of the photo.

Rainfall on Ocean

This is a shot of Waikiki Beach in Oahu, Hawaii.  Over the ocean there are storm clouds in the sky and from the bottom, you can see how the rain has started on the ocean.  It was very difficult to get any photos as these beaches are almost always full of people swimming and riding the surf.  For once, I was able to capture it relatively quiet of people and in the pristine beauty of nature itself.  I have always enjoyed seeing rain from a distance.  On the prairies you can see the rain storm coming from far away.
