Long time no Blog

I have not blogged for a while but I have been busy. I have done a few private photo workshops in the last 2 months. In fact the photo above is from one of them. I have made many new friends on these workshops and I look forward to shooting with them again. From the time of my last post I have only been in the surf a few times our season has been a little dry in Kona but below are a few images from my time in the water.

I have been underwater quite a bit with the lack of surf. 

I have even spent a few days out on the water looking for whales and dolphins with amazing results. 

I even got my first whale breach of the year off a private charter on Marlin grand o. By far the most luxurious boat I have ever photographed whales from and I look forward to getting out with captain Brian again soon.

We saw over 14 whales on this trip but only one breach it was still a blast.

The last shot looks like it was taken by moon light but it was just getting very dark out. I kinda liked the effect. Below was a double rainbow that greeted my group to the Kohala mountains.

This is shaping up to be a very diverse post as I even spent time in the botanical gardens shooting these beautiful orchids.

What would a diverse post be without a few turtles, and sunset photos. I was stoked to see this many turtles here with such an amazing sunset.

The last photo was taken just the other day at A-Bay. There was lots of V.O.G turning the sky orange as the sun went down to balance this light and capture the detail in the foreground I needed to stack a hard and a soft grad and give a lot of exposure time. Luckily it was the calmest that I have ever seen it here. I cracked a few ribs attempting to get out to the ocean entry by boat so I've been recovering a bit. And Nick and I are getting ready to do a winter trip here at the end of the month.
