Best of… Hawaii!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to Hawaii, so I thought it would be fun to do a little tour down memory lane of my favorite photos I took while there!

The Exploding Wave Oahu had a peaceful coast where the waves would silently roll up on the beach and other, violent areas where the water would smash against cliffs and rocks. I’ll let you guess which of those is happening here! - Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

The Lost Cliffs of Oahu This is a very very very rare re-processing of a photo! I usually never go back to a work.. so, this is more the exception than the rule.But I started trying a few different things with Photomatix (that you can see in the Photomatix presets at the site), and I just like the overall feel of the photo better than the previous version. I don’t see myself going back to re-do whole swaths of photos… this one just grabbed me for some reason.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Temple in the Jungle Highlands - Byodo-In I would never have guessed that something as ornate and unique as this would be buried up in the deep jungled highlands of Oahu!It is a popular destination, and I guess people in Oahu know about it, but I had never heard of such a place.  This is the Byodo-In Temple, and I happened to arrive right when the sun came out.  This is a nice time because the morning fog and storms had left many layers of clouds and mist in the background, which gave everything a very unusual feel…- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Fishing on Oahu The rugged coasts along Oahu make for some lay-up (as Tom calls them) photos. Everything is quite rugged and dramatic. But, even if it was not for the drama of the scene, I think this fisherman is extra-dramatic! I didn’t see anything actually caught, but I would think it would be some giant dramatic fish.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Paddleboard in HawaiiThe weather in Hawaii was rather dour and dismal for most of my trip. I only caught one sunset while there, so I decided to try to make the most of it.This lone paddleboarder was skating across the surface of the ocean while I was walking along the beach. Although this photo looks fairly serene and calm, I was not. You only get one chance for this shot, unless you are willing to take a shot, sprint, take a shot, sprint, take a shot, SPRINT, etc. I'm sure people on the beach thought I was a loon, but I couldn't think of any other way to get it done!- Trey RatcliffRead the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
