The Early Morning Sun

I am still stuck in Hawaii. This first photo was taken just as the sun was peeking over the mountain behind the hotel and the first light was catching the palm trees. The yellow that you see in the palm trees is the sun hitting the trees just as it gets high enough in the sky to catch the tree tops.

This is another shot taken just minutes later as the sun hit the water. It brought out this fantastic blue in the water so I just zoomed in and took a shot. There was just something about the color that made me want to take a photo.
Early morning on the islands is a great time to just sit back and relax and enjoy the surroundings. There are only a few other people up and it's nice and quiet. Just the sound of the ocean and a nice breeze. I don't know that I understand the people that spend 8-10-12 hours on a plane to paradise just to get up early in the morning to go jogging but to each his own.
I noticed that around 6:00 to 6:30 a.m. just about the only people out are the health nuts, the guy cleaning the pool and one man with his metal detector working just off the beach in the water. I really enjoy the early mornings on the islands. Any other time I would still be in bed!

  1. So... still can't get Hawaii out of your mind?

    These are both great photos especially when you add the commentary to set the mood of the pictures.

    Is it possible, maybe just a little possible that you are due for another week or two in paradise? Lord knows I am!
