Crashing Surf – Laupahoehoe Point, HI
My muse, Lisa, and I were able to make another trip to the Big Island of Hawai’i this April. She had been staying on the eastern U.S. mainland during an exceptionally bad winter, so the trip was a treat for both of us, and an opportunity for me to explore with her more of her favorite places on the island, and to spend more time photographing on this trip.
In addition to acting as a great tour guide, showing me places that I might not have found on my own, Lisa was a big help to me in really appreciating and capturing the intense colors of the island. Because of my early background in black and white view camera film photography, I had trained my eyes to focus more on form, shape and textures, than color. This made a lot of the photos in my body of work have a monochromatic feel to them.
Lisa helped me to notice the intense turquoise color of the water in the foreground. The variations in the colors of the ocean add to the power of the waves and the shapes of the lava rocks to make this a more interesting image.
