There’s nothing that signifies a new beginning or horizon to me better than the sunrise of a brand new day. It gets even more exhilarating and significant when that new horizon happens to be looking to the sea with the sun rising in the east. I took this photo in Poipu beach, Hawaii last year. The colors of the sky were in stark contrast to the black lava rock that rims the coastline. A worthy sight and memory to begin any day or any endeavor.
I’ll post a rather small “Victory” for this week’s challenge. We were in Kauai, Hawaii a couple of weeks ago in a house right on the beach with beautiful breaking waves. I have always been enamored by the ocean and can sit for hours just watching the ever changing views of the surf. What I have never done is try to capture a decent picture of the surf as kind of a stop action landscape. I took many photos that week trying to get something that expressed the beauty and the power of the crashing water. I kind of like this this one as I can almost hear the sound and smell the salt spray – I hope you enjoy it also.
