Although this appears as a standard beach and sky photo, the sea was the calmest it’s ever been and the sky was split. There was this tiny fishing boat in the still water, facing towards the looming storm clouds to the right, while the left was bright blue and wispy.
The abundance of texture aids to the chaos that was going on at Laie Point at the time. Waves were crashing high above the cliffside, and the strong winds pushed the salty air into our faces.
I couldn’t help but admire the natural silhouette of the mountains and palm trees in the background as the waves rolled forward. It was a warm, sunny day but the trees on the beach were able to provide shade (and a frame).
After making our way across the barrier of the cove to watch the sunset, my friend and I fumbled to recover from monstrous waves engulfing us. We fumbled with phones and cameras to capture this sunset, when a lady nearby us told us we’d miss the beauty if we didn’t pay attention. I quickly snapped this, capturing the absence of crazy waves, birds flying by, and a sun dipping low.
