Sunset in South Maui


  The weather improved just as the sun was setting and we had a nice sunset on an otherwise dreary day. I used Hi-tech graduated Neutral Density Filters to create this image.  This enabled me to use a slow shutter speed to create the mist affect on the rocks.  I just love that mystical feeling. …

Motion adds excitement

Secret Beach in Makena at sunrise

  In this image I want to slow the wave as it met the beach.  I used a 1/15th of a second shutter speed to accomplish this.  The low camera angle adds an extra bit of interest.   The sun had just risen and the light was changing fast.  This is why landscape photographers always …

Boy on beach

A woman can buy a car but that does not make her a race car driver.  A man can by gauze, and bandages, but that does not make him a nurse. A kid can make a paper airplane but that does not make him a pilot.  So just because someone has a camera, does not …
