Not often I shoot/process in same day. I took (1) photo Feb 16, 2017. Been enjoying my 16stop filter as it mostly sits in the bag. Decided to start playing with it more.
This was shot as the sun was setting so the light was moving from foreground to background. I had actually wanted more golden light on the water but I was enjoying the beach and waited too long. Ran up and set up this shot…10min later, viola. Considering the swell was approx 20′ this is a far cry from the crashing waves at the time. Quite a different feel and mood from the chaos of the surf.
Tis that time of year and with it comes a very special image! This photograph, Kalalau Love, was actually taken way back in 2009 and not released until now! On this particular adventure I was with some friends on my first trip down this ridge. While the hike isn’t very long it makes up for that in exposure and sheer beauty. Arriving at the ‘end’ there is one last section that it is possible to cross…not for the faint of heart. Years later this was captured during the filming of aFeinberg – The Documentary. The point in question is in the first section.
On this first time I was even more timid and couldn’t bring myself to do this section with my camera backpack on. So after reaching the other side my friend let me borrow his camera (good friend!). As the clouds danced below us a brief opening in the clouds allowed me to see what was below…Kalalau Beach. Not only was the revelation truly stunning but the opening in the clouds was seemingly in the shape of a heart! Only nature could be so cheeky. Needless to say this started my love affair with this particular vista. 🙂
We are proud to offer this special image in a VERY Limited Edition of only 50 prints. 5 Artist Proofs will also be available.
