Just a splash

Coming up for air

Here come the turtles!
I think we saw turtles everyday this trip no matter when we were in the water.

The Airport Beach

Yes it's another cell phone picture...  I promise to post some "real camera" pictures after this.

But I couldn't resist posting this panorama as it came out surprisingly well when you consider that the waves were rolling in even as I panned slowly over the scene and it still managed to stitch it all together and make it look proper and not all chopped up. Must be quite the algorithm they've developed to make this all so seamless!  

Reaching for the Sky

Sunset on a Maui beach. 
Take a deep breath and relax. Everything is good for the moment.

Breakfast in Hawaii

I found this bird in a palm tree one morning just as the sun was coming over the volcano and lighting up the west side of Maui. I don't know what kind of bird it was but he/she and a partner spent a lot of time flying around the trees near our condo eating the different things they found.

Another rainbow

Another rainbow, I guess it's that time of year. The weather can't make up it's mind so it's raining one minute and sunny the next. 

I'm always curious to see what's at the end of the rainbow so I zoomed in and what do you know... An Eagle on one end and another Eagle right near the other end!

Upways panorama

Just playing around with the cell phone camera again... This time I used the camera's panorama mode to capture a couple of 160ish foot Red Cedar trees. Not the best picture in the world but proof positive that tall things can be captured just as easily as wide things using the panorama feature.

Low Tide

We'll be back to the mainland in just a couple of days. I hope you're ready to see some turtle photos because it has been turtle city ever since we arrived.

Late dusk

The fishing vessel in the foreground is tied up at the Seagate Dock for the night and the Ferry on the far side of Hardy Bay is loading vehicles and passengers for the scheduled run up the Coast to Prince Rupert and several stops along the way.

Early dusk

Every evening after sunset the mist begins to form over the grasslands at the head of Hardy Bay, by morning the mist has turned to fog that blankets the landscape until the daylight chases it away again.

Beaver Lake sunset

Last night's sunset at Beaver Lake. I took this picture with my Samsung S4 in panorama mode and touched it up a little in Photoshop.

Serious Stink Eye!

Talk about getting a serious case of Stink Eye! This Hawk was watching my every move as I took his picture a couple of days ago.

On another note I'm not sure what kind of Hawk this is. We have mostly Red Tail Hawks over here on Northern Vancouver Island but this Hawk is quite a bit larger and has much different markings. Any ideas anyone?
