Feel the warmth...


NOT! 

Like a bucket of ice water in the face, any illusions of an early spring were quickly dispelled this morning when we woke to THIS... The winter that just won't quit. UGH! 😬

Scenes from Hardy Bay...




Some recent scenes from Hardy Bay.

Twin Peaks


Maybe I could have used that lens you found Paul to see to the top!

Hawai'i never stops amazing me. I'm ready to do some more exploring!

Soaking in the sun!



We're starting to see the first signs of spring over here on the West Coast of Canada.

Up, up and away!


Another color photograph that came out B&W. Guess that's what happens when you shoot at really bright scenes...😎

From under the sea


Don't ask me, I don't know what kind of fish this is and I can't find my fish book!

Picnic spot


If I had thought ahead and brought some food this would have been a great place to have some lunch!

Always a nice treat to find flowers popping up, especially this time of year!

My first model shoot




Cheryl and I were sitting on our lanai one morning drinking coffee and this lovely lady came out on to the grass and was trying to take her own photo with a point and shoot on a small tripod.

We watched her for a couple of minutes and my wife said I should go down to the beach and offer to take some shots for her, and I always do what my wife tells me! LOL

Her name is Pat, she is a body builder form Nevada and she was more than happy for me to take some photos with my "fancy" camera. I took about 100 shots and was able to get 6-8 good ones out of the bunch.  

The wind was blowing pretty good so it was hard to get shots without her hair blowing into her face or looking like a hurricane was coming.  I could have used a little fill flash but I hardly ever take my flash to Hawai'i and this was one of the years I didn't. These were taken early in the morning before the sun had gotten over the top of  the volcano so it was still a little dark.

Another sunset in Paradise



Yep, I can look at these every day!

It's been cloudy, dark and cold here ever since we got back and the longer it stays that way the less happy I am. 

It's amazing how much a little bit of sunshine can change your mood!
