This was taken about 30 minutes before sunrise. It was low tide but the sea was angry that morning, so I had to be very careful where I planted myself. No matter how careful I am about where I setup my gear I always end up getting wet, Sunday morning was no exception!
The morning skies will first, burst with color, almost oversaturated yellows, oranges & blues. Then it'll just go flat & uninteresting. I've actually seen beginning photographers put their gear away & start walking back to their car. If we're lucky, "The Big Boom" as the sun starts it path over the horizon reflecting that amazing golden glow across the bottom of the clouds. As it gets higher in the sky the golden glow will start to reflect on the surface of the ocean & backlight the crashing waves! It doesn't end there, as the fingers of light reach across the seas it hits the wet rocks in front of me as it starts to glow with that beautiful golden glow...I live for this moment! It happens so fast that if your not prepared you'll miss it.
Aloha a hui hou my friends!
