Laupahoehoe rocks

A couple more black and white shots from Laupahoehoe Point on the Hamakua coast of the Big Island. This is one of the most beautiful spots on the Big Island that often gets overlooked by visitors but also has a tragic past. On this evening, as I mentioned before, the thick vog and clouds made everything look so dull there were no colours to portray and even if I tried (and I did!) it looked wrong. So resorted to catching the movement of the water instead. Apologies if you don't like black and white but sometimes it works better. I prefer colour myself!

In my living and family rooms, there are 3 water scenes:

An oil of Kaneohe Bay;
A watercolor of Lahaina Harbor; and
An underwater scene full of sea creatures.

In my bedroom is a print of a woman looking down at a koi pond.

All four water scenes are very flat and tranquil -- nothing turbulent like your photos! Interesting what different artists choose to portray!

Gigi - maybe I just like a bit of action! On the other hand there are some pictures of mine that show calm water, so maybe I don't know what I like ;)

Horsemom - thank you!
