Photographer's Note

Just after sunset between Pipeline and Log Cabins, two popular surf breaks on the North Shore of Oahu. I don't think that what I shot here was a very workable break, but nonetheless there was a surfer catching a few short rides. After spending three days (so far) here on the peaceful and rural North Shore, I don't know why anyone would want to venture to Honolulu or the madness of Waikiki.

update: this is Rockpile surf break.

Taking the photo:
Every now and again a larger wave would wash up to where my tripod was set up. My girlfriend would stand behind me and call "WAVE!!" so I could grab the tripod so as not to let it get undermined by the water loosening up the sand. The smaller waves are why there is a sort of "mist" around the rocks. There was so much salt spray in the air here that cleaning the filter a few times was necessary and I had to cover the camera with my sweatshirt while waiting for the light to change.

note: Please pardon any "off" colors or oversharpening. I am working on my laptop while here and the laptop screen is just no good for photo editing. I was too excited to wait until I got home to use a real monitor....
