Black & White

Just a lily from the front yard. 
That seems to be the farthest I can get away from the house for right now.

Big Orange Ball

I guess I'm still daydreaming.

This was taken off of Olowalu Beach on Maui one evening while I was looking for turtles.

Even a stormy day in Hawaii is better than a day at work!

Because you can always eat Hula Pie, even when it's storming!

Floating in the clouds

Aaron and I were down at the pond a couple of weeks ago shooting reflections and he came up with this great idea. I stood and waited for him to set up the shot but he never did so I stole the flower and took the shot myself. 

Okay, I may not have waited very long but I did wait a little bit. I get impatient sometimes in my old age!

Riding the tide

Just another turtle photo from this past January.

Inside a Poppy

I found this poppy flower growing in the yard so I stuck my camera lens up nice a close and took a photo.

My, what big eyes you have.

We have been over run by the cicadas this year. Everywhere you look there are hundreds of them flying around. You can even hear them over the sound of a riding mower while you're on the mower.

If you don't like big flying bugs, stay out of Kansas this summer!

Headed out to sea

Hey buddy, you're in my way!

Aaron started it!

I didn't get the wave curl shots I wanted this last trip so I guess I'll just have to go back and try again! It's a rough job but I think I'm up to the task.

These were all shot using a GoPro Hero 4 on a pistol grip. The first photo was shot next to a reef at low tide just as a small wave came over the top of the reef.

The second shot is the same reef but the shot is taken as the wave is breaking on top of the reef and the third shot, well, that's just there so Aaron doesn't have a monopoly on shots of flowers in the ocean. LOL

The Curls

Just felt like Hawaii today. Ron and I talked a lot about trying to get the perfect curl shot of the waves breaking. There is a lot of hard work and pain that goes into getting some of the amazing shots you see featured in various places. We didn't get much of a chance to really go out and try at the popular spots, where the waves break just right, when we went back in January. I did play around on the tiny waves that were breaking on the reef by the condo. Here are three that I liked I have a lot of pictures to go through and I have barely posted any of them. One of these days I will get to it. Until then enjoy!
